Book of Common Prayer 2011

I have co-edited a new edition of the Book of Common Prayer, published Easter 2011. This edition uses the English Standard Version Scriptures and updates the language of the original Cranmer prayer book of the 1540s. With accessible language and detailed explanations of the Anglican tradition, we pray that this Book will help many, both within and outside of the Church of England, to learn and pray God’s Word.

It has been a blessing to work on such a beautiful and useful project with Father Keith Acker of Alpine Anglican Church of the Blessed Trinity and his wife, Alice. We spent many a Wednesday afternoon at my home school table, reading Collects aloud and working to make the language both accurate and readable. This project has been truly a labor of love for all involved.
