For persons wanting a simple edition of The Book of Common Prayer that one would find in the pew - this is a very good one to have around.

I couldn't page forward or back; I couldn't go back to previous activity; I couldn't open any menus.

Format: Hardcover
The Book of Common Prayer (1979) is the latest, complete BCP used by the American branch of the Anglicans, the Episcopal church. There have been many books that have had the title 'Book of Common Prayer' since the first one appeared in 1549; it has been used continuously in one edition or another in the Anglican tradition since 1559; the 'main' edition remains the 1662 edition. The American church modified the Book of Common Prayer for its own use beginning shortly after the Revolutionary War -- this book is the successor of a long and worthy tradition.

A bishop in the Episcopal church once said to me, 'We don't have a theology that we have to believe -- what we have is the prayerbook.' Please forgive the absence of context for this phrase -- while he would say that this statement in isolation is an exaggeration, and I would agree, nonetheless his statement serves to highlight both the importance of and the strength of the Book of Common Prayer.

To be an Anglican (in the United States, read Episcopalian for the same in the context of this article), one does not have to subscribe to any particular systematic theological framework. One does not have to practice a particular brand of liturgical style. One does not have to have an approved politico-theological viewpoint. One can be a conservative, liberal or moderate; one can be high church, low church, or broad; one can be charismatic, evangelical, or mainline traditional -- one can be any number of things in a rich diversity of choices, and the Book of Common Prayer can still be the book upon which spirituality and worship is centred.

The Book of Common Prayer is not, in fact, a book that changed my life. It is a book that changes my life.

Paging is different than the original book, which creates problems. Page numbers are an important reference during the course of Episcopal servicces.

While this is a far superior product to previous Kindle editions of the Book of Common Prayer, I am surprised that one cannot search by or "go to" a page number. Countless Episcopalians know where things are in the BCP by their page number. Plus if one wanted to use this during worship, being able to jump to a page number would make it easier to use.

A grand improvement, but missing one rather key feature.

This is an almost faithful reproduction of the 1979 Book of Common Prayer (The Episcopal Church). Unfortunately, it was created using the "% location" format used in most Kindle books. This makes it impossible to use the cross references in the rubrics (which are not hyperlinked). Thus, this edition is not usable for worship, or even for study and preparation. The PDF version of the Book of Common Prayer works better.

I found it helpful during deployment to stay grounded in faith and help keep my sanity. A great addition to just reading the bible.

It took me a while to go Kindle, but it's nice to have the BCP in such a compact, portable form. I use it for traveling mainly, when carrying a bunch of books becomes unwieldy. I advise bookmarking ahead of time, since the pages on Kindle don't match the pages we are so accustomed to opening.

It was just what I wanted. I want something easy to take to work and have with me whenever I need it for prayers or inspiration.
