Welcome to the Book of Common Prayer


Morehouse Publishing 2005

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Navigate the currents of Anglican liturgy and discover its richness and beauty. Vicki K. Black offers this guide for both newcomers and lifelong Episcopalians, declaring that in using this book, “we discover we are not alone, and this liturgical current of worship, prayer, and praise will indeed take us where we want to go—union with the God we seek to love.” You’ll discover everything—from where to find the Sunday collect to how to pray the Daily Office. Welcome to the Book of Common Prayer is more than a how-to volume; it offers history and background to make the prayer book a more meaningful part of worship. With thoughtful reflection questions in this simple, conversational volume, this is a perfect volume for parish study groups.

In the Logos edition, this volume is enhanced by amazing functionality. Important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches to find exactly what you’re looking for. Take the discussion with you using tablet and mobile apps. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.
