From the Back Cover:

Other denominations have extensive "confessions of Faith" to which they give their allegiance. Episcopalians have only the Book of Common Prayer which tells us what we do and what we say as we worship. It also tells us what we as a church believe. Professor Charles Price helps u explore this inexhaustible source of strength and blessing both for life in the church and for private devotion.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

The Episcopal Prayer Book in America In the United States, a book of common prayer was approved by the first General Convention of the Protestant Episcopal Church in 1789. It put prayers for the President in place of prayers for the King, a substitution necessary if the American Episcopal Church were to serve the new republic. It made a few other changes and additions congenial with the rationalism prevalent at the time.
