about the Treasury of Daily Prayer is the different way folks are approaching it. My dear friend, Pr. Rick Stuckwisch, sees it primarily as a handbook for a father to use in leading the family in prayer. It certainly could be used in just that way with great profit. I see it chiefly as a complete breviary - a Lutheran form of the Daily Office - which can be used in individual prayers or in the Church setting - also with great profit. And there's a number of variations in between. Either way, it is a fabulously rich resource for growth in the life of prayer for the Christian. If you're a Lutheran Christian, do I think you should buy it? DUH. YES! I think you'll find it to be the most versatile prayerbook you've ever come across. I'll bet no matter HOW you end up using it, it will be a daily companion on the Way.
