We are starting a forum at my church in the next couple of weeks on the Book of Common Prayer and we are going to work along with this book. I have yet to read this one, but I have read The Anglican Vision by Griffiss which is a part of the same The New Church's Teaching Series. If this book is anything like that one, it should be an enjoyable, devotional read that is not too tedious with the historical facts but rather a look at spirituality.

A good overview of the Book of Common Prayer - both history and usage. The BCP is the base prayer book for the Episcopal Church, and the Anglican tradition generally. First written in the 1500's, it has evolved over time as the Church has evolved. However, the book itself forms the format and basis for worship for the Anglican churchgoer. Where the Anglican tradition appears to be relatively flexible on dogmatic theology, the Church seems very firm on the form and format of worship as contained in the BCP. Jeffery Lee discusses the controversies and issues that have arisen over the 450 years that the BCP has been in use, and discusses the historical, ancient, elements and traditions contained in the BCP. If you are new to the Episcopal Church or want to understand the Anglican tradition better, this book is critical to understanding the what and why of the BCP and the form of worship.

I've been ordering a lot of books from Amazon lately and I have to say, this book arrived in no time! I was surprised because I actually thought this book was another one that I had ordered a week before (which I still have yet to receive). I decided to get this book on recommendation from my priest. We are starting a forum at my church in the next couple of weeks on the Book of Common Prayer and we are going to work along with this book. I have yet to read this one, but I have read The Anglican Vision by Griffiss which is a part of the same The New Church's Teaching Series. If this book is anything like that one, it should be an enjoyable, devotional read that is not too tedious with the historical facts but rather a look at spirituality. Instead of focusing on the Who? and How? of the Episcopal Church, these books instead focus on the What? and Why?

I thought this to be not a difficult read; nice combo of history, personal experiences, etc. Kept my interest throughout the book. It also filled in "gaps" in my knowledge of the development of the Prayer Book we use.
Nothing personal
This is very informative. If one is a new Episcopalian, this really helps one to understand the liturgy.

was a great help for the class on the history of the Book Of Common Prayer from its inception till now, recommend even if you just want to know more about the book we use

Insightful book from the current Bishop of the Diocese of Chicago

Jeffery Lee is my bishop, so I may be a little bias but this is a wonderful read on the value of using our prayer book and it's history. A definite read for the learned Episcopalian. :-)
Excellent. Lots of information, and lots of church history.
