    350 years and going strong. I read the Evening Prayer most nights. It comes on my Kindle in a blog with lessons included. Makes flipping thru your bible obsolete.My Kindle has the read text feature. I listen to "The Daily Office" blog many evening of the week as I lie in bed waiting for sleep. The words of Evening or Morning Prayer are the last words I hear by the Vesper Light.

    My spiritual home is the orthodox Anglican church - this is the tradition that taught me about liturgy and beauty and orthodox faith (I am not touching on all the other complicated politics of this right now!) I am very fond of my personal size BCP - I find prayer hard, and the BCP shapes my words. If you don't already have one - I recommend you acquire one!

    the words in this book have shaped the very fabric of who I am...

    Mine has become quite worn from the weekly trips to and from church. But there is some deep pleasure in having my own prayer book to hold onto and use during services.

    I keep a copy of this book with me almost all the time. It's not that I am a greatly spiritual man, however, it has been a comfort for me and others as I have walked through life. Though Christian, this book, and it's accessories (psalms, rights, prayers), are just nice to have around to look over when life becomes challenging enough to bog down the mind.

    A treasured resource for traditional Episcopalians/ Anglicans recitals for people who appreciate the format of the King James-style language. It features a Presentation section containing certificates for the rites of Baptism, Confirmation, and Marriage. It is beautiful, black genuine leather binding; gold page edges, 3 ribbon markers, gold roll in inner cover. The just don't make them like they use to. Beautiful and historical language that is beautiful and meaningful. However this is not a book with a growing audience. Sadly not many have any inclining for the word and what it can be.

    I am glad I bought this volume. It contains so many helpful readings and also a number of prayers that can be used which are written for a particular event or cause. This volume would be especially helpful for those in charge of activities for a church group or event, especially anyone who is shy about public prayer because the prayers would be appropriate and to the point. I will also use it to excerpt sentences to put in cards mailed out to others or even for Facebook posts about a particular event or situation.

    I am what you could label a devout Christian. But I didn't grow up in a liturgical tradition.This book contains an introduction to the liturgy of the Episcopal Church. It is complicated to use this book for personal, devotional use.I plan to use http://www.bookofcommonprayer.net/ind... --based upon this book and the NKJV--as I develop the discipline of reading the daily office and weekly lectionary.

    There's a mistake in the listing: this is the liturgy of the Episcopal Church in the USA, not the Church of England.This is my church's standard liturgy. I use it when I lead services at a local nursing home. I prefer the older prayer books (stronger language, stronger theology), but the greater variety of services in the '79 book is helpful; and the more basic language is good for some contexts.

    besides the nice little leather cover and the two book marks (genius) this is a great, great book of prayer. I mean where else to you get all kinds of subversive scripture options placed in the morning and evening prayers. Each and every day. I was rather confused by the whole thing the first time i went to Grace Episcopal in Siloam Springs but now, years later, i really love this book.

    This is what I use for my daily morning prayer, mostly for the daily office reading and beautiful collects. My husband and I also enjoy the Sunday lectionary readings of scripture which prepare us for worship on Sunday. We attend a mid week lectionary Bible study. The BOCP contains readings from the psalms, old testament, gospel, and an epistle: a very nice balance.

    This book was presented to me by Fr. Kahl on 31 August 1980 as gratitude for my service as an alter boy at the church. My tenure was ending as I was off to prep school.

    I use the prayers and scripture calendar every day. I love it. It is helping me become more familiar with the Psalms.

    The layout and design of this book is superb. I bought it more for this than for the content--although the language is beautiful. Makes Christianity seem dated but alluring.

    I like this version. It says it like it is! Orthodox! I'd like to look at the one from the 1600's

    That's weird. I think that services for Priest and there are different ways.

    I cherish the BCP; it has revolutionised my prayer life and shapes my view of God's world and my place in it.

    I use this book of prayers every week when attending the Episcopal service on Sunday. A treasure trove.
