Overview

For many Christians, the Book of Common Prayer is the most important book used in worship with the exception of the Bible itself. Even if you don’t come from a liturgical tradition, you’ll find that the Book of Common Prayer is a well of inspiration. The influence of Book of Common Prayer has permeated into many worship traditions and ceremonies, as well as society in general. “Till death us do part,” “Earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust,” and many more phrases from the Book of Common Prayer are now common parlance.

The Book of Common Prayer Collection (17 vols.) brings together some of the most historically important editions of the Book of Common Prayer as well as key works that explain their rich history. The Book of Common Prayer has origins that date back to the 1500’s during Edward VI’s short but influential reign. Replacing various Latin rites which had been used across England, Thomas Cranmer compiled a complete English liturgy for the Church. The Book of Common Prayer became the foundational prayer book of the Church of England and was a large component of the Protestant Reformation. From its first inception in 1549, the Book of Common Prayer has undergone many revisions and updates, and many other denominations have adopted its structure. The history of the Book of Common Prayer is as fascinating as the history of the Reformation itself!

With the Logos Bible Software edition, all Scripture passages in the Book of Common Prayer Collection are tagged and appear on mouse-over. Each volume is fully integrated with the other resources in Logos, including your preferred Bible translation. This makes these resources more powerful and easier to access than ever before for scholarly work or personal Bible study.

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

This edition of the Book of Common Prayer was created for provisional use in the Reformed Episcopal Church.

  • Publication Date: 1928
  • Pages: 611

The 1928 prayer book was the Protestant Episcopal Church’s third prayer book. This would be the last official prayer book that would solely retain the formal/traditional language similarly used by the Church of England’s Book of Common Prayer.

  • Publication Date: 1979
  • Pages: 611

The 1979 Book of Common Prayer is the current and official Book of Common Prayer for the Episcopal Church. This book contained significant revisions, including the use of contemporary language, that many found controversial. Many Anglican parishes still use the 1928 Book of Common Prayer, but other churches welcomed the revisions, feeling they were needed in order to respond to changing social conditions and ongoing research and discoveries about biblical and church history.

King’s Chapel was organized as an Anglican congregation in 1686. In 1782, Harvard graduate James Freeman was hired as a lay reader for the church during a time when it lacked a leader. He introduced Unitarian ideas in his preaching, and in 1785 the congregation accepted the revisions he had introduced to the Anglican Book of Common Prayer. Although the church still considered itself Episcopalian, the Bishop that represented the Anglican church refused to ordain Freeman, so the congregation ordained him themselves—a practice the independent Unitarian church still follows today, along with their use of the Book of Common Prayer According to the Use of King’s Chapel.
