Canterbury Companion to the Book of Common Prayer

This review was written by Melanie Carroll and published in Together Magazine

For anyone who regularly uses the BCP services this is a lovely companion work focusing on the Gospel readings in a private and contemplative way. Digging past the mere surface of the Service liturgy and liturgical value, it attempts to fuse the history and relevance of these two things into a devotional work that paints a new picture beyond the surface sermon details.

Chapman uses devotional works and prayers from a range of sermons, prayers and poems of other notable people who probably would have well understood the BCP Gospel
readings and context of service, even though many of them are not necessarily of the Anglican tradition. In doing so he brings fresh insight and relevance to a service that many no longer see as being relevant and, in that, there is a rightness to this book. If you are from the

Anglican tradition then there is much here to be enjoyed ... regardless of which style of service you actually use.
