A prayer book for everyone


I think the word Beginner should be deleted. This is a prayer book for everyone. I keep returning to the 7 page introduction which is a prayer in itself. It is divided into 12 sections and includes comments from the author. For example, he includes The Seven Deadly Sins and Their Remedies with an explanation - The classical deadly sins undermine and destroy our Christian life. This prayer helps us to avoid and remedy them by embracing the virtues that oppose them and by trusting in the mercy and power of God to deliver us from them. Small enough to keep in my purse. I highly recommend.
