Using the Book of Common Prayer

Full Product Description

This timely guide introduces and explains how to use the Book of Common Prayer in a way that is accessible and informative without being technical or assuming prior knowledge. It is intended as a basic, beginners guide for ordinands and readers, especially those from a non-liturgical/non-traditional background, for whom the Prayer Book tradition may be alien. Part 1 of the book offers a general introduction to the history, theology and liturgical character of the BCP. It also explores the place and meaning of 'common prayer' within the Anglican tradition; Part 2 offers general practical advice on the principal services of the BCP, how to use them, and where flexibility is permitted. The guide, the first of its kind, will help its readers come to a renewed appreciation of the place of the Church's historic, normative liturgy in the distinctive tradition of Anglican praise and prayer.
