Review:

Venite is an invitation to pray, and that is exactly what author Robert Benson (Living Prayer) offers in this book of prayers. "This book was never really meant for you to hold in your hands," Benson confesses. Rather it came out of Benson's personal desire to say "the Office" (meaning to pray morning, midday, evening, and night). Unfortunately, Benson discovered that there was little guidance on how to structure this ancient form of worship or what prayers he could use, and so he set out to create his own guidebook. "The one who made this book is neither priest nor scholar nor monk," he humbly continues. "I am a pilgrim... I am simply a man who wants to pray and I have found these prayers helpful."

Benson offers his suggestions for designing a daily prayer pattern that includes "praise, confession, hearing the Word, and going forth." He divides his prayer book into seven sections, including "Office" (with specific prayers to repeat morning, noon, evening, and night), "Seasons" (with prayers that relate to the Christian calendar), and "Days of Remembrance." Those who are familiar with the structure of Christian prayer books will have little trouble following the format and language of this handbook. However, newcomers to the Christian faith may find it complicated and slightly overwhelming.
