This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. This study examines the 1892 revision of the Book of Common Prayer historically, focusing on its reflection of the issues confronting the Church in the late-19th century and on the process by which it was adopted. It attempts to uncover the place of the revision in the evolving self-understanding of the Episcopal Church. The 1892 revision represented a stunning departure from previous attitudes about the immutability of the prayer book, helped redefine the Church's ethos at the start of a new century, and was the sine qua non for future revision.
