    Rev. H. R. Curtis, renowned in the American Lutheran world for his work at the online version of the popular "Gottesdienst" journal of Lutheran liturgy, has outdone himself in this phenomenal work. In this ground-breaking edition, Curtis has taken an enormous leap forward in the history of American Lutheranism, a move toward its rightful place as the true heir of the Church Catholic. In this regard, a work of this caliber has been long overdue and will undoubtedly be well-received, particularly as later editions come forth with all of the kinks worked out. Although Rev. Curtis is a member of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, the genius of this volume is displayed in its transcendence of synodical boundaries; in following the historic "Common Service" liturgical tradition, clergymen of any synod can utilize this invaluable work. Furthermore, even if one is not a member of Lutheran clergy, this missal can be extremely helpful in the personal devotional and prayer...

In short, the Daily Divine Service Book is a very welcome edition to the Lutheran world, and a long-overdue progression in the Evangelical tradition of the Church Catholic.< Less

    An excellent example of what it claims to be: a Lutheran daily missal. It has full propers for every day of the year, plus full services for Holy Week, along with traditional graduals, tracts, and sequences. No secrets of objectionable character are included; i.e., no invocation of saints or recourse to their merits. No Tridentine or Anglo-Catholic practices are surreptitiously introduced. Some truly obscure saints are used to fill out the required 365 days, but some Reformation and Post-Reformation worthies are commemorated. As for the Mass itself, the Common Service tradition with Piepkorn's comments and usage guides suffices. One might wish for alternative Eucharistic Prayers going beyond the bare recital (though with crosses and elevations) of the Institution Narrative. But to do so would alienate precisely the conservative confessional Lutheran constituency for which this book is designed. An index is desperately needed, or other appropriate navigational guides. Proper use... More > requires adding tabs or colored ribbon markers. A larger-sized, leather-bound (or other permanent covering), and Smyth-sewn edition with built-in tabs or ribbons would be fine for an Altar Service Book. But this edition can simply be used beside the usual Altar Service Book. All in all: a righteous Liturgy for the Evangelical Mass!< Less
