Book of Common Prayer
Book of Common Prayer is fundamental to the identity of the Church
of England not simply because it was THE only liturgy of the Church
for nearly 300 years and continues to be the normative liturgy
of the Church today but also because it is part of the doctrinal
basis of the Church. Moreover, most of the Provinces of the Anglican
Communion also have the 1662 Book as part of their own identity.
