Basically, this is one of Wizards of the Coast's worst supplements ever. It really is just a rehash of previous material with very little added. It's a disturbing trend and it does nothing to improve Wizards' detereorating reputation.
What is perhaps most troubling is the appalling editing. They apparently forgot to decide some spells' levels, lengths, etc. It's a little distracting, but when your main focus is the huge spell list, you're not that concerned until something goes a little awry and then you've got your DM to decide what he'd like best. What's worse is that the book has no index and the pages have not been cross-indexed during the editing, meaning several instances of "refer to page xx" where the "xx" has not been replaced with the relevant page number(!). Very, very poor. But wait, there's even worse to come. So sloppy is the cutting and pasting from previous material, they haven't even updated some of it to 3.5 from 3rd edition. I think that's inexcusably bad.
I appreciated the surplus of druid images, though! I like seeing the generic druid all around the Complete Divine, but I did notice a lack of other images... the generic ranger hasn't shown up yet in any book, and the cleric is mysteriously missing most of the time. Hmm.
Overall, a dreadful supplement with virtually no redeeming features.

For those that prefer not to have to prepare spells, The "Favored Soul" Class is here to have a "divine" caster that can spontaneously cast their spells with good saves in EVERY category. The only thing lacking is a clarification on whether or not a Favored Soul can take spells associated with their deities domains (as they don't take domains themselves) but from what I can gather, most DMs allow you to take domain spells as long as that domain is on your Deity's list.
Solid book that is great to have handy for anyone wanting to play this flavor!!
The classes presented I found to be so-so. I'm not a big divine player, so my opinion is essentially skewed. I'll leave the review of this section to the experts.
The Prestige classes here are what makes this book shine! The Evangelist is an awesome progression for any cleric. I am absolutely in love with the idea of a Pious Templar as an NPC in my campaign. There are so many great PRCs here, I could go on and on.
The feats, what can I say, wow! Every dedicated healer should pick the Augment Healing feat, such a great feat! You also have to love the Spontaneous healer feat as well, giving you the ability to drop your spells for healing spells. Again, I can't say more about the feats presented here!
The only sections I took issue with is the Dieties section and the Divine World sections. For those of you running Greyhawk or another published CS this section is indespensible, however a lot of people create their own pantheons and religions. Personally, I can see how the sections could be useful, I just didn't find a use for them in my homebrew campaign setting.
And the spells, wow! I love the options given to the Druid, a oft overlooked class in my opinion. The extra domains really impress me as well. They really feel natural in their design, I was quite impressed.
All in all I would say this is a must have for any DND library.
