By Jonathan Luysterborghs on December 2, 2005
Format: Paperback
As a newcomer to leading Morning Prayer I found this book invaluable in developing the understanding and confidence that I needed. During Lent I purchased multiple copies of this for my parish so that others would also feel empowered to lead morning or evening prayer. Fr. Webber concisely frames Morning Prayer in its historical context and provides valuable insights though the use of running commentary in a parallel page format throughout the text of the prayer service. By explaining the purpose of each component Fr. Webber removes the uncomfortable sense of not knowing why or if participation includes recitation of all of the various components that comprise Morning Prayer. After reading this book anyone should feel at peace in leading a morning or evening prayer service.

My daughter and I both have the book of common prayer but I have the guide and over our vacation time we were able to use the user guide to our advantage. It was very helpful and got us on an organized track so that we could go through the offices effortlessly and understand what we were doing in a matter of minutes. I highly recommend this user guide as a companion to the book of common prayer. Frankly, to have the book of common prayer without the user guide I believe would be a serious mistake. The user guide helps you make the most out of the book of common prayer and I highly recommend it. By the way, my daughter recommends it too!

This is a great book to use with the Book of Common Prayer. It has highlights, page numbers and quotes to help explain different areas. I'm a newcomer to the BCP and I am pleased at how this book helped.

None of the previous reviewers mentioned that this book is based upon the 1979 Book of Common Prayer. As a user of the 1928 version I found it required a significant amount of interpolation but was still somewhat useful. I am an Anglican Lay Minister who has conducted both Morning and Evening Prayer and I bought the book in the hope it would provide some additional insight and understanding of those Offices. To a certain degree it did.

Mainstream Episcopalians, being more familiar with the 1979 BCP language and references, will likely find this book helpful.

American Anglo Catholics and traditional Episcopalians will find The Oxford American Prayer Book Commentary by M. H. Shepherd, Jr. (now, regrettably, out of print, but used copies are available through Amazon) to be a great deal more comprehensive and, of course, specific to the 1928 BCP.
