Publishers Description The Book of Common Prayer is the historic prayer book of the Church of England, in use since the sixteenth century. In its revised 1662 form, it has become one of the classic texts of the English language, its prayers and expressions making English what it is today. This book uses Cambridge's 2004 setting of the Prayer Book, with a modern digital typeface that gives a very clear and readable printing image. The format and page layout match Cambridge's previous editions of the Book of Common Prayer page for page. All the 1662 services are included, including the traditional forms of the baptism and marriage services. This style is bound in black French Morocco leather and presented in a slipcase. It contains a presentation page and ribbon marker to keep the place. * printed on gilt-edged paper * new, easy-to-read setting * presentation page

Reviews - What do customers think about BCP Standard Prayer Book Black French Morocco CP223?
Excellent Quality copy of an Anglican Treasure Feb 12, 2007
The Book of Common Prayer 1662 is the official prayer book containing the services of the Church of England. This Cambridge copy is bound in French Morocco leather, which is beautiful yet affordable. Although some of the archaic English is a bit difficult to understand sometimes, this book is THE classic prayer book. Cambridge is well-known for their quality leather Bibles, and you'll use this prayer book right alongside your Bible every day. Note: The prayers for the monarch have been changed to suit the times. They do do not bear the name Charles II, the British monarch (1660-85) but rather the current Queen of England HRH Elizabeth II.
