The Book of Common Prayer: Past, Present and Future: A 350th Anniversary CelebrationSam Burrows, via The Good Book Stall
The book is a 350th anniversary celebration which embraces the foundations laid over a century before our current Book of Common Prayer. There are 14 essays, a Foreword by HRH The Prince of Wales and an Afterword by the Bishop of London, Richard Chartres.
A key theme is the influence the Book of Common Prayer has had on the English language, and at the heart of this work of English formation is Archbishop Thomas Cranmer. P D James quotes Cranmer's biographer, Diarmaid MacCulloch - 'Millions who have never heard of Cranmer, or of the muddled heroism of his death, have echoes of his words in their minds'.
Each writer contributes from their experience what value they place on the Book of Common Prayer – theology, Bible reading, mission, the inner devotional life and memorability.
This is a timely tribute to that 'via media' which is the Church of England and the Anglican Communion, and its Prayer Book. Do read it – it will send you to the BCP and fresh appreciation.
