The 1928 Book of Common Prayer is beloved by Anglican traditionalists throughout the United States. Unlike the 1979 book that was adopted by the Episcopal Church, the 1928 BCP stands in direct line of descent from Thomas Cranmer's 1549 Book of Common Prayer, and as such, its collects preserve the beauty of the Archbishop's original prose. The Epistles and Gospels are taken from the Authorized Version (otherwise known as the King James Bible) and the Psalter remains that which has been used by generations of Anglicans throughout the world, that of the Great Bible of 1539.
In addition to containing all the rites and services pertaining to common worship in the Anglican Church, APA's printing of the BCP contains both the original 1928 lectionary as well as the revised lectionary of 1943.
This sturdy hardback book is ideal for use in the church pews and may be ordered in bulk.
