The 1662 Book of Common Prayer—Service Book
IVP Academic's popular edition of the classic 1662 Book of Common Prayer, now available as a beautiful Service Book for use in public worship.
The Service Book of the The 1662 Book of Common Prayer: International Edition contains all the services a minister would use in corporate worship. The liturgies present the unaltered text from the International Edition, set in large, readable type with red rubrics and five ribbons. Covered in beautiful genuine red leather, with gold stamping and a lay-flat binding.
The Service Book includes:
The Book of Common Prayer (1662) is one of the most beloved liturgical texts in the Christian church, and remains a definitive expression of Anglican identity today. But the classic text of the 1662 prayer book presents several difficulties for contemporary users, especially those outside the Church of England. The 1662 Book of Common Prayer: International Edition gently updates the text for contemporary use. State prayers of England have been replaced with prayers that can be used regardless of nation or polity. 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.
