3.0 out of 5 stars Useful but disappointing, 2 Aug. 2006
This review is from: Time to Pray (Common Worship) (Common Worship: Services and Prayers for the Church of England) (Leather Bound)
How big is your biggest pocket? If it is about A5 size then all is well. If it is smaller, this publication will have to be carried in your hand or in a bag. A compact book like those issued for the Book of common Prayer is still not available for Common Worship. This book contains some of the already published texts from Common Worship Daily Prayer. The book was printed and bound by the Cambridge University Press. The cover is more like Vivella (imitation leather) than the real thing. The cornmers of the pages have not been rounded to match the cover. The spine as seen from above or below is made up of a thick layer of glue. There is no band at the top or bottom. It seems like a ribbon was too much of a good thing to include.

Sorry to be so negative. Church House Publishing has missed a great opportunity to help people enrich their prayer lives outside their own home, simply because the book is too large. The three stars are for the book itself. The content I have not rated.

The price is way too high. This publication will be out of the reach of many people who could benefit from using it.

A tip for Chruch House Publishing: a book half the size for a little more than half the price, nicely finished and with a ribbon and you have a winner.

For those of you with big pockets and well-filled wallets, this book will enrich your faith and guide you day by day through your prayers.
