About this title

Synopsis:

In 1549 Thomas Cranmer published the first prayer book in English using language derived from medieval forms of worship. Later prayer books produced by the Anglican Communion are derived from it and in the eyes of many are inferior. This edition presents Cranmer's services in a form which is practical, accessible and easy to follow, designed to be used in worship. As in the original, the instructions, the "rubrics", are printed in red. The hope is that churches and informal Christian groups may use it for occasional or even regular acts of worship.

Review:

... delightful... excellent resource... I recommend this book to anyone... interest[ed] in liturgy or in the history of the Anglican tradition. -- The Rev. Jim Snell, as printed in The San Joaquin Star, September 2000
