5.0 out of 5 stars Book of Common Prayer 1664 18 May 2011

Great little book of Common Prayer, it's small enough to fit into your pocket, and packed full of information that you need if you are attending a BCP service.

5.0 out of 5 stars With all my heart, and mind, and strength... 8 May 2007
By Kurt Messick HALL OF FAME
This Book of Common Prayer (1662) is the 'primary' BCP, used by the Church of England proper, the original branch of the Anglicans. There have been many books that have had the title 'Book of Common Prayer' since the first one appeared in 1549; it has been used continuously in one edition or another in the Anglican tradition since 1559; the 'main' edition remains this 1662 edition. Churches in other nations (Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, the United States, Canada) have done revised Books of Common Prayer, but they always use this as the touchstone.

A bishop in the Episcopal church once said to me, 'We don't have a theology that we have to believe -- what we have is the prayerbook.' Please forgive the absence of context for this phrase -- while he would say that this statement in isolation is an exaggeration, and I would agree, nonetheless his statement serves to highlight both the importance of and the strength of the Book of Common Prayer.

To be an Anglican, one does not have to subscribe to any particular systematic theological framework. One does not have to practice a particular brand of liturgical style. One does not have to have an approved politico-theological viewpoint. One can be a conservative, liberal or moderate; one can be high church, low church, or broad; one can be charismatic, evangelical, or mainline traditional -- one can be any number of things in a rich diversity of choices, and the Book of Common Prayer can still be the book upon which spirituality and worship is centred.

The Book of Common Prayer is not, in fact, a book that changed my life. It is a book that changes my life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book for daily prayer and Bible reading 29 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase
As a family we use the BCP every morning and evening. It is a wonderful resource, teaching us to pray more deeply and taking us through the Psalms every month.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality, solid pew edition 31 July 2013
Verified Purchase
Product Description states clearly this is a Pew Edition and yes it is a nice robust prayer book. The paper will withstand daily "thumbing" as is good thickness. Paper is bright white and text clear to read. I would have liked two page keeping ribbons but will try and stick my own on. Try following Holy Communion without the said ribbons and it will involve a lot of page turning. Those photos showing some kind of book cover with handles should be removed as that is not what you are getting.
