Lutheran Book of Prayer Review Jan 25, 2008
This compilation of prayers and other material is very useful to the clergy or lay leader who may not fell quite comfortable "praying as they go". This book has a number of thoughtful prayers for many occasions that can be a great comfort to people of all ages. I use this in my ministry to the home-bound and I may not use the prayer itself, but it reminds me of areas that might be covered in an ad hoc prayer. In fact while visiting one of our members, his son said he was piloting his plane later that day. Sure enough, their was a prayer for an aviator.
It is a welcome addition to anyone doing ministry.

Just today, I spent a bit of time with my son reciting the Evening Prayer and the Easter Prayer. How wonderful to have a quick reference to guide me in earnest prayers. I do not like praying by rote, and this little book gives me enough to form my own thoughts and expand on the prayers, as well as explore the reasons Luther chose his words. For Lutherans, the whole book is great. For non-Lutheran Christians, 95% of the book will not contradict your doctrine. There are mentions of infant baptism and the presence of the true body and blood in communion. This should not in any way detract from the entirety of the book. I use books by Larkin and D. James Kennedy and can overlook doctrinal differences in order to benefit from their knowledge. Hopefully non-Lutherans can learn from arguably the most influential man in recent Church history.
