Kindle Edition: Not quite as easy to use as I had hoped. Looking for a specific prayer in the Table of Contents proved to be somewhat difficult and time-consuming. True pagination absent: page search "{p. 384}" is very awkward across Kindle devices (original, Fire) and apps (iPad/iPhone).

Haven't used this in my very liberal church yet: want to ask permission first! ( )

The Book of Common Prayer is a central part of what it means to be an Episcopalian and how we share our lives together in worship and prayer. The Prayer Book is not just for use on Sundays, but for daily devotions and prayers for all occassions. There are many combinations of The Book of Common Prayer that you may choose. There are several colors, leather or imitation leather covers with prayer books only, prayer book with hymnal or prayer book with Bible. Every person should have one.

Disambiguation notice
This work includes all editions of the 1928 Book of Common Prayer of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America. Previous revisions of the American BCP are combined separately for ease of access.

Although based on the Church of England's 1662 Book of Common Prayer, the American BCPs differ from the Church of England's in several respects, including the Prayer of Consecration at the Eucharist, prayers for civil rulers, and certain revisions of the Thirty-nine Articles. They are therefore considered separate works and NOT combined with the English BCPs.

Likewise, since the 1979 BCP embodies significant changes in both language and theology from earlier revisions,
it is classified as a separate work also. PLEASE do not combine these works.

Finally, please be careful not to confuse the C of E's 1928 and 1979 revisions of their Prayer Book with the American revisions of the same years.
This work includes the Episcopal Church (USA)'s 1979 Book of Common Prayer, the Draft BCP of 1976 and Proposed BCP of 1977 that preceded it, and subsequent editions. Since the 1979 BCP embodies substantial changes in language compared to earlier editions, it is classified as a separate work. Please do not combine this work with those of earlier editions.

Likewise, please do not combine any works of the American BCP with their Church of England counterparts.
