A Simple Guide
  • By Paul Thomas
$16.99
($20.99)
The Book of Common Prayer remains at the heart of the Church of England and using it is an essential skill for all clergy and readers, yet many are no longer familiar with its contents.

This practical guide explains how to use the Book of Common Prayer in a way that is accessible and informative. Introducing this central tradition of Anglican worship without using technical language or assuming prior knowledge, it is intended as a beginner�s guide for ordinands and readers, especially those 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.

Using the Book of Common Prayer will help its readers come to a renewed appreciation of the place of the Book of Common Prayer in the distinctive tradition of Anglican praise and prayer.
