The 1662 Book of Common Prayer, International Edition

Samuel L. Bray, Drew N. Keane

One of the most beloved liturgical foundations in church history, this text remains a definitive expression of Anglican identity, used worldwide in public worship and private devotion. While preserving its majestic cadences, its beautiful language has been mildly updated, state prayers for England have been made more universal, and a panoply of later Anglican prayers has been appended. Obscure words and phrases have been modestly revised―but always with a view towards preserving the prayer book's own cadence. Finally, a selection of treasured prayers from later Anglican tradition has been appended.

The 1662 prayer book remains a vital resource today, both in the Anglican Communion and for Christians everywhere. Here it is presented for continued use for today's Christians throughout the world.
