Using the Book of Common Prayer (709)

Order Code: 709


Using the Book of Common Prayer - Order Code: 709
Paul Thomas
A simple and timely guide which introduces and explains how to
use the BCP in an accessible and informative way 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 may be unfamiliar.  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 prinicipal 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.
