Has anyone purchased a copy of the prayer book recently published by Ancient Faith Publications, and if so, what do you think of it?

I've heard it's pretty bare and not worth purchasing.

I think it's hard for any prayer book to beat the one put out by the Erie Old Ritualists.

From what I've read, this prayerbook is supposed to be an alternative to the prayerbook which use Jacobean English.  I think this prayerbook is a solution in search of a problem.  It is pretty stripped down though it does have more psalms in the morning prayer section, for instance.  I just don't see what need it is satisfying. If you want a truncated, non-Jacobean English, GOARCH produces one.

Looking at the contents, I really don't see the point of publishing this prayer book. I am generally puzzled by the proliferation of prayer books which often have bare bones material and do not offer any apparent advantage over others.

I wish they would work on a Horologion or even a Psalter that does not require you to buy an analogion or steroids.

Because we needed a prayer book with "Ancient Faith" in the title. Next will be a publication of the "Holy Ancient Faith Bible," followed up by an "Ancient Faith Psalter." If we're lucky, we might even get a spin-off comic series titled, "Orthoman: Defender of the Ancient Faith."

But which ancient faith are we talking about?

I've type in ancientfaith.org instead of ancientfaith.com several times by accident, and needless to say, the results are not the same.
