Filled with a wide range of prayer from the rich tradition of the Church-including personal, family, and liturgical prayer and prayer for special occasions-The Catholic Prayer Book serves as a treasury of Catholic worship from ancient times up to the present day.

This is not a basic prayer book, even though it does include the Mass. This book is a large selection of unfamiliar prayers which is exactly what I wanted. When the author is known, it is provided next to the prayer. The chapters start off with short lessons. It is, however, a very plain book and at the price point it should have better quality paper, a ribbon, some color illustrations, and gilt edges. The small size and soft cover are nice.

This prayer book is comprehensive. It contians many of the "old" traditional as well as "new" prayers. Would be a lovely gift for a special occasion. Best Uses: Gift, Reference, Travel Reading; Describe Yourself: Everyday Reader; Pros: Deserves Multiple Readings, Easy To Read
