Even though I've used this practice myself and found spiritual nourishment from it, Robert Benson's exploration of praying the hours was not engaging. One reviewer said, "It literally took me months to read." That's not necessarily a bad thing but I concur. It took me months to read because it just didn't capture my attention. Benson's book is intended for rookies but I'm not sure many people new to praying the hours will be drawn to this potentially life-giving means of grace through this particular book.
This book was provided to me free of charge by Thomas Nelson publishers through their Booksneeze review program in exchange for honest review.
