5.0 out of 5 stars The Daily Prayer of the Church 4 Dec 2007
The Divine Office is time honoured and tested method of prayer that offers a thorough grounding in Catholic worship outside the mass. The 'breviary' as it is known is prayed throughout the world and, once mastered, you have the assurance that your prayer is part of the official (Roman Catholic) church's glory and praise to God.
There are three volumes of the Divine Office. Volume One covers Advent and Christmas tide. Volume Two covers Lent, Holy Week and Eastertide. Volume Three (this one)covers Ordinary Time.
Included also are many writings from different saints as well as the official church calander.
As with all worthwhile prayer, The Divine Office takes time, but with faithful dedication it will become a very rewarding experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Third volume of the Divine Office 2 July 2009
Excellent buy. Very clear print and very easy to use, once you've learned to navigate around the book. Excellent aid to getting involved in the daily prayer of the Catholic Church. All that at a generously discounted price. Well done Collins and Amazon.

THE DIVINE OFFICE IS A RICH TREASURY FOR PRAYING THE HOLY SCRIPTURES.
A few minutes of your time spent each day praying in this way is time very well spent.
DON'T MISS OUT - TRY IT FOR YOURSELF!

(I've added some photographs (under "Customer images") of the book you actually receive.)

This is the third (of three) volumes of the "full" modern Catholic breviary, the Liturgy of the Hours; volume 1 covered Advent and Christmas, volume 2 Lent and Easter, and this one effectively covers the rest of the year: it's this one that will accompany you through the summer and autumn.

These volumes are the pinnacle of a whole range of Collins books featuring content from the Liturgy of the Hours in the same style. In ascending order of size, it goes:

- "Shorter Morning and Evening Prayer"
- "Morning and Evening Prayer"
- "Daily Prayer"
- "The Divine Office" (3 vols)

Each of these is effectively a step up, an expanded version of the last. There's no need for anyone to own all seven of these books, as the Divine Office contains everything in Daily Prayer, which in turn contains everything in Morning and Evening Prayer, etc etc; each time you step up, it renders the previous step redundant.

This, the three-part Divine Office set, is the full-length version, the biggest of the lot. Between them, they contain everything that's in the smaller volumes, plus a lot of extra material - the introduction and user guide (the "General Instruction") is in volume 1, but all three contain many hours of prayer for each day of the year, as well as a healthy sampling of hymns, poems and prayers for specific purposes.

Exactly right. Not as well printed as my ancient volume which had creamy paper and gold edging but that is not what matters.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful devotion 31 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
It's a very beautiful holy book with psalms and the readings of the day which I particularly like. I use this book with devotion everyday. I'll be purchasing volume 1 definitely for advent and Christmas period.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Liturgy of the Hours 28 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
I bought this book to have access to the Office of Readings (also called Matins) as I was already in possession of Daily Prayer (which contains all the other hours). It's the thickest volume of the three and quite weighty. The US version, split into 4 volumes, is perhaps more portable - but their bible translation is poor. (Yes, even worse than the Jerusalem Bible!)
For those already familiar with the other parts of the Office, this is the next step up. Giving access to a greater quantity of scripture and, particularly, writings of the Saints and other selections. It can serve as a springboard to further study, for those who are interested.
Delivery was acceptably efficient.

This book has transformed my prayer life - it is a fabulous resource for anyone wishing to engage more deeply with prayer, scripture and the tradition of the Church. I cannot recommend it enough.
