    Short but thick in content

    Posted by John on Oct 24th 2016

    The book is more the size of a booklet but is dense in instruction . It's essentially a guide to Christian life , with all the necessary truths distilled into a very small package . I would say it would be ideal to carry on a book bag or purse for a couple for a constant reference companion . It avoids much of the denominational baggage that can often bog things down .

    It's great to have an inexpensive paperback version for gifts. Many have asked about obtaining a copy but were put off by the relative expense of the few hard back copies available from specialty publishers. Thank you Legacy.

    Wonderful presentation of this ancient doucment

    Posted by Robert Leblanc on Oct 18th 2016

    I first bought the eBook version and while I was happy with the content, I was disappointed that a print version wasn't available. I was very pleased when the print version was released. I have now received that print version and I am very happy with it. I bought 20 copies to give as gifts to a small group of friends with whom I meet regularly to pray vespers.

    My advice? Order several!

    Posted by Susi on Oct 13th 2016

    Surprising quality for such an affordable little book! Brief, well-written introduction in the front and a nice selection of prayers in the back. I ordered only 3 and wish I had ordered more. I plan to fix that very soon!
