Product Description

In this clear, immensely readable book, Wayne Smith argues that the Episcopal Church's 1979 Prayer Book realizes some of the fondest ideals of the English reformers, and that the Anglican liturgical tradition has often brought about creativity through controversy. Smith takes the reader through the daily office, the Eucharist, the initiation rites and the other pastoral offices, examining them in the light of Prayer Book history to "describe broad principles from the Anglican tradition that might enliven ordinary parish worship in the Episcopal Church today."
