Prayer Book Spirituality: A Devotional Companion to the Book of Common Prayer Compiled from Classical Anglican Sources

by J. Robert Wright

Condition: As New/None

This book is as new condition as it gets. The only thing missing is the dust jacket.

"Revision of The Book of Common Prayer in the latter half of the twentieth century, while seeking to provide modernized and updated forms of worship for Anglican church people, has at the same time also stimulated in them a desire to know and to participate more fully in the classical tradition of Prayer Book devotion. Over the centuries since the First Book of Common Prayer in 1549, numerous Anglican writers from many perspectives have produced variously related works that can be seen as, in effect, devotional commentaries on the nature and function of Prayer Book worship. The purpose of this present undertaking is to bring together basic selections from the most important of these earlier writings and to render them accessible to modern readers in one volume that can serve as both compendium and companion to the spiritual and devotional nature of Prayer Book worship. It is intended to accompany and supplement any Book of Common Prayer used anywhere in the Anglican Communion. The contents need to be read selectively in any order that may be desired; indeed, for most readers, the book will be better "dipped into" than read through from beginning to end. In showing how Anglicans since the Reformation have understood and interpreted their public worship, this anthology should also be of considerable assistance to non-Anglicans who want to understand the feature that is, ecumenically, most characteristic of Anglicanism." - Introduction, Prayer Book Spirituality: A Devotional Companion to the Book of Common Prayer Compiled from Classical Anglican Sources
