Excerpt from The Church in the Prayer Book: A Layman's Brief Review of Worship There are many commentaries upon the Prayer Book, from primary instruction to exhaustive treatises; more than enough to dissuade from the introduction of another. But it is believed that the system of inquiry and explanation here pursued is one not precisely employed before. It deals primarily with the Prayer Book of the Church, that most venerable, historic and priceless volume, known and read of all men. It aims to treat this volume in order and detail, overlooking nothing necessary to a thorough appreciation of its contents, as regards the analysis, history and application of the text. Frequent comparison with this text will be found helpful to an intelligent understanding of the comment. Results alone have been given, and these have been thrown into a simple, and, it is hoped, useful running commentary on the Offices in their practical application to wor ship and service. To do this, the usual form of question and answer has been exchanged for a simple descriptive style, and all references to authorities omitted, from a desire to curtail in volume. Extended works of ripe scholarship on the one hand, or of catechetical instruction on the other, have a value not here claimed.
