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.

I have many prayer books now, but this one has become my favorite. I find it to be a perfect companion to my 1928 Book Of Common Prayer. Don't hesitate to get this one or the newer version.
This is the book my son received for his confirmation and we all love using it. I was going on a business trip and wanted an extra copy. I found all the new revised versions, which are not the same - a lot is lost in translation. I was so relieved when I finally found the original here that I bought 2. Please continue to carry! The service was excellent and the books arrived so quickly I was shocked (since they were coming across the country). Thank you and God Bless!
my friend liked the book
wonderful addition to my reading, inspiring
My rector introduced me to St Augustine's Prayer Book as I joined him one day in reciting The Angelus and ringing our church bells at noon. Since then, I have used this devotional mainly to supplement daily morning and evening office, picking it up as I can throughout the day. Most recently, during lent, I used the section on Penance to prepare for confession (be prepared to spend some time on this section) and reading The Hours during Alter Watch after Maundy Thursday. Get a copy and use it... you will be blessed!
The prayerbook arrived in a timely manner. The prayer was just as I expected. Once again the Episcopal bookstore provided its standard excellent service.
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.
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.
