Treasure Indeed!

It's coming! I'm very excited, indeed! Yes, I enjoy praying the Daily Office (Matins, Morning Prayer, Vespers, Evening Prayer, and Compline) from LSB. (And the Brotherhood Prayer Book is a fabulous resource as well.)

Yet even with such great books, there is the need of one's Bible for the readings, and any other sources such as church fathers, Luther's Works, etc., for further devotional readings.

But now, in one volume, we have a true treasure in the final stages of publishing. The order of service, prayers, Scripture readings, all 150 psalms, and various passages from Luther & other sainted fathers in the faith will be at your fingertips!

The Treasury of Daily Prayer will be offered by CPH in October. For $34.99, a book "just a tad thicker than
Lutheran Service Book, with the same exterior dimensions of the Concordia edition of the Book of Concord" will have all of your prayer needs at hand!

The local LWML zone (for which I am pastoral counselor) had officers who actually thought I was on one of the committees for LSB, since I talked it up so much. Well, now I have yet another book from CPH that I'm praising and urging: TDP!

Look in your parish for sign-up sheets to appear in October for distribution around Reformation.

Rev. Paul McCain has a PDF of the introduction (a working draft) for a sneak preview.
