The first edition of Saint Augustine's Prayer Book. this beloved little book of devotions, was published in 1947. Now in it’s seventeenth printing of the revised edition from 1967 St. Augustine's Prayer Book remains a popular-selling book in our store. It makes a perfect companion to the prayers and devotions of the Book of Common Prayer.

Excellent service

The prayerbook arrived in a timely manner. The prayer was just as I expected. Once again the Episcopal bookstore provided its standard excellent service.

A wonderful book

This is a wonderful book! This edition is, however, to judge from the shape, a different size from the one I was given many years ago. I would appreciate having the dimensions given for the various publications, particularly those one might well refer to as "personal-sized."

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

Beuatiful prayer book

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!

Spiritual support

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.

An Old Friend

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.

Carried this prayer book with me for years.Gave it as a gift to a priest who was leaving my episcopal church for another episcopal congregation.Said he carries it with him where ever he goes.This is a great inspirational prayer tool. Missed it and had to order another.

Positive Experience.

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

Always my favorite

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.
