Review: I began a couple of years ago with the Lent/Eastertide volume. Over that time, I have purchased the remainder of the volumes. These books follow the liturgical year, are very spiritually "nutritious"... truly food for the soul. I truly enjoy the references not only to Scripture, but also to the writings of the Fathers of the Church. I will enjoy reading them over and over through the years, always learning something new!

Review: I use the book for daily readings during Lent. The readings are based on the scripture readings for each day so I try to get to them before morning Mass. Not so great? Maybe too pre-Vatican II. Don't know how much of the doctrine is legit. Best Uses: Older Readers; Describe Yourself: Everyday Reader; Pros: Deserves Multiple Readings, Informative, Well Written
