    "A Useless Waste!"

    As far as I can tell from endless listening this is a simple monotone reading of the Book of Common Prayer. No index. Impossible to use or locate anything in the text. A total waste of a credit. Completely the WRONG format for a book of this type. What were these people thinking?

    "Save your money and just buy the book."

    This audio is not organized to be able to listen to today's reading, it goes through morning readings for the whole year and then begins again with noon reading for the year etc. It is read (performed) as written. Go to Amazon and look at the table of contents to see what I mean. There is no way to use this audio book in the way the real book is intended. This is very sad since the material is lovely and inspiring. I am so disappointed, the audio as organized is as useless as a list...utterly useless, I am bummed. This could have been so good, it would not have taken much to set it up to be useful, each section a day's reading in total, maybe they will re-release it someday.

    "This book is for you"

    -- no matter who you are, as Claiborne proclaims in the introduction. I'm a great admirer of Claiborne and had wondered what his energy turned to worship would be like. First I downloaded this an an ebook - which is so wonderful that I broke my rule of never buying a book in more than one format and downloaded the audio. The authors deliver what they promise, that is, they mine "the oldest and best traditions of Christian prayer and made them dance a little."

    So whether you're a late middle-aged Canadian Catholic like me or any other demographic, I think there's something in here to help you create sacred space (and smile). More than having something for everyone, Common Prayer has something for all: I think this captures worship that can bridge generation and denominational gaps.
