The Episcopal Bookstore would be the bookstore in the kingdom, for the staff always seem to operate by kingdom values. My experience over the years has been nothing but topnotch."
Saint Augustine's Prayer Book, Revised Edition

Excellent prayer book. I use it mainly to supplement the daily offices.

St. Augustine's Prayer Book is a wonderful devotional work. I received one for my Confirmation and have turned to it many, many times through the years. On Good Friday I used it to do the Stations of the Cross.
I ordered two copies with the engraved names for two people I love as Easter gifts. They both loved them!

I thought this book was out of print and am happy to find it available here. This 1965 revision retains the traditional language (thou and thine instead of you and your) and includes devotions for times of the day, seasons of the year, and special needs such as spiritual communion. It's perfect for private prayer: small enough to fit comfortably in the hand yet the type is clear enough for my elderly eyes. The binding is sturdy to survive much reading.

I received my first copy when I was confirmed in 1960. I now needed a new one and the Episcopal Bookstore had it in its best version and at the lowest price.

I received prompt, personal service. The order was arrived timely, in good order, and was as advertized. I would order from Episcopal Bookstore again.

There are so many occasions when St Augustine's Prayer Book comes in handy that I like to carry it wherever I go. I really like being reminded how important the discipline of prayer is and how the words of our prayers have shaped the way we look at the world. Sometimes when I use written prayers, the words merely float through my head and don't take hold. But St Augustine's Prayer Book is all in traditional wording, so if my mind is tending to wander, I can keep myself engaged with the process by changing the words into contemporary ones, which is how I think and pray anyway. This book makes a great confirmation gift, because it opens the door to helping new confirmands to understand what an Episcopal prayer discipline might look like.
