"Most of the objections urged by the Dissenters against the Church of England, to justify their separation from it, being levelled against its form and manner of divine worship, prescribed in the Book of Common Prayer , &c., are, in the following Discourse, answered, as fully as its brevity would permit. So that, though the principal design of this book be to instruct such as are friends to our Church and Liturgy; yet it is not impossible but that, by the blessing of God, it may in some measure contribute to the undeceiving some that are enemies to both, (such I mean as are disaffected to the former, upon no other account, than a prejudice to the latter;) especially could we, by first convincing them of the Liturgies in general, prevail with them to take an impartial view of what is here offered in behalf of our own. To this end therefore, and to make the following sheets of as genera luse as I can, I shall, by way of Introduction, endeavor to prove these three things; viz." - A Rational Illustration Of The Book Of Common Prayer Of The Church Of England

All week long, as I walked in the forest, touched the branches, leaned against the trunks of trees, and lay on the soft ground of pine needles, I felt a deep wave of intense emotion while a great peace settled in my soul. I stood silently amid the trees, taking in deep breaths of an air that seemed both earthly and eternal. I hummed. I sang. Each time I walked into that sacred place, I felt as though I never wanted to leave. Something in that dark, earthy, moist, forest felt like "home" to me. Something in that quiet realm spoke to me of an energy dwelling in the land long before I was there, an energy thick with life and vitality...." - Foreword from A Contemporary Celtic Prayer Book

    Prayer Book Spirituality by J. Robert Wright

    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

    Celebrating the Saints Daily Spiritual Readings for the Calendar of the Church in England by Robert Atwell

Christian men and women from the last two millennia are included, from Clement of Alexandria and Hippolytus of Rome to Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Evelyn Underhill. Brief biographies and an index to the themes covered in the book make this a useful reference tool, as well as a wonderful devotional book.A beautifully crafted book, with fine hardcover binding and ribbon marker, Celebrating the Saints is an excellent gift for any season or occasion. A perfect companion to anyone observing the Episcopal Lesser Feasts and Fasts.
