The Book of Common Prayer is not just the old and well-loved prayer book of the Church of England. It is one of the classic texts of the English language, and many of its phrases and ideas have become common usage.

The Book of Common Prayer is still in use for some services in churches all over the UK, and many people prefer the old services. This prayer book will be of interest not only to churches themselves, but also to churchgoers who want to own their own copy. The low price will place this prayer book within most people's reach.

Why does the Prayer Book matter?... Because, as its very survival over the centuries has shown, its language and liturgy are sensitive to the profound human need for continuity and permanence, and have shown themselves not of an age, but for all time. Prince Charles, Church Times
