From the cover: The Book of Common Prayer is one of the few literary classics which is also a liturgical masterpiece. Originally produced in the sixteenth century by Thomas Cranmer for the newly independent Church of England and revised several times since, it is still in daily use four hundred and fifty years later. During that time it has exerted a powerful influence on all English speakers and writers. Together with the Authorized Version of the Bible and the plays of Shakespeare, the Prayer Book has shaped the consciousness of a nation and the empire they created. Yet it remains above all the expression of powerful and enduring religious impulses which will outlive the historical conditions of its creation.
The Everyman edition reprints the 1662 version of the Prayer Book, with substantial appendices taken from the 1549 version.
