It figures that a priest would pick "The Prayer Book" as his favorite book, right?  Listen as Fr. Anthony makes a case for breathing life into the prayers in the prayer book on a regular basis. One of the many benefits is that it will make the Orthodox worldview (the myth that is true!) real in your life and thus allow you to live more efficiently.  Let us know what you think!
