Product Description

Review

'For anyone who wishes for their own copy of the Church of England's daily prayer book this is a welcome addition to the range. For many this will be a source of inspiration and a book to treasure ... A particularly strong point is the translation of the Psalms where excellent short concluding prayers have been added ... It is beautifully produced ... The print is clear and well laid out.' (Tim Hurren 2010-02-00) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

By far and away the best production from the Church of England in the 'Common Worship'programme.The main offices of Morning and Evening Prayer can be used with one or two readings and are strengthened by the spelendid variable canticles. Night prayer is a first class rendition of the traditional compline, and given official status after a hundred and fifty years of unofficial use ! The Miday Office is splendid, it can be used as a short office in Church at home, even on the bus. It can be extended into an office of Readings, using Scripture and readings from patristic or other sources.
The psalms are enriched by the refrains, which may be used as antiphons.
The propers of the Seasons and saints give light and shade to the daily pattern of prayer.
Only one complaint, A refrain with the opening canticle would have marked the tone of the day or season.
The format is easy, the print clear.It is easy to learn your way around, and works well in practise.
It is hard the compliment the C of E enough, the Daily Office has come of age in this book, valuable for Clergy (Who must say Morning and Evening Prayer as obligation), Monks Friars and Nuns, and most of all the holy people of God, who will find it a source of growth and renewal.
Buy it and pray.

Format: Hardcover
The Church of England's Liturgical Commission and Church House Publishing are to be congratulated for the outstanding work done in producing the definitive edition of "Common Worship: Daily Prayer." This revision of the Church's daily round of prayer should set the standard for other revisions throughout the Anglican Communion. Particularly noteworthy is the overall structure of these offices, their flexibility, and the tone and mood set with each seasonal variation. You begin to wonder at how so much could be included in so small a book! I especially appreciate the many scriptural canticles (pp. 548-644) and the options of beginning Morning Prayer with "The Acclamation of Christ at the Dawning of the Day" (p. 108) and Evening Prayer with the ancient ceremony of the "Blessing of Light" (p. 110).
While much that is good can be found here, there are also some things which, to my mind, require closer scrutiny. Verse 3 of Psalm 3 (p. 651) where God is referred to as "the lifter up of my head" and verse 2b of Psalm 115 (p. 823) "Where is now their God" seem awkward and unfortunate renderings. Because of their importance to these offices, a thorough review of the Psalms for translation and euphony is in order (while not perfect, the inclusive language version of the Grail Psalms might be considered). Most of the Forms of Intercession (pp. 366-399) are absolutely right on (see pp. 376, 394-395) while some need further work (see p. 374, which strikes me at least as too wordy and preachy).
These minor problems should not, however, detract from the great achievement overall of "Common Worship: Daily Prayer"--to make available to the ordained and non-ordained alike a round of daily prayer that is simple enough to be used widely, flexible enough to allow for local adaptation, and of ample inspiration and appeal as to invite use in daily prayer. I will continue to use it as part of my own daily spiritual discipline.

Because of their importance to these offices, a thorough review of the translation and euphony of the psalms would seem to be in order. Also, the prayers provided at the conclusion of each psalm are of uneven quality. Then too, the invitation to prayer concluding each Lenten petition on page 338 (where God is addressed in the second person) should more properly read "We pray to you, O Lord" rather than "Let us pray to the Lord"; otherwise addressees seem to become confused as you go along.

I would call myself a new monastic and recently discovered liturgical prayer and living (about a year ago) having come from a Evangelical Charismatic background where extempore shopping list prayer was the norm. Over the last year I've used several books of liturgy. Celtic Daily prayer, Shane Claibourne's Common Worship, Iona prayer book, and the Franciscan Celebrating Common Worship. All of which are fab but very repetitive. However with common worship you can more fully embrace liturgical living. Embracing disciplines like lectio divina, contemplative silence, space for extemporey prayer as well. Common Worship allows you to vary the number of offices you keep. I generally keep 4, but with common worship you can keep 2-5 offices very simply. I use it mostly through the my CofE app on iPhone but the kindle version sits on all my apparatus meaning I can turn to it anywhere at any time. I think if I was to reccomend one prayer book above the others it would be this one.
