A book on the BCP: “The Teacher’s Prayer Book” by Alfred Barry

April 7, 2018

I came across another book on the Book of Common Prayer tonight: The Teacher’s Prayer Book by the Rt. Rev. Alfred Barry, which contains the text of the 1662 BCP with notes and explanations of the various parts of that text.  Bp. Barry (1826-1910) was Assistant Bishop of London for a time, as well as Bishop of Sydney and Primate of Australia and Tasmania, and he really knew the subject about which he wrote.  (His Introduction is well worth the time to read it.)  Although I have had problems uploading the PDF to my blog tonight, it can be accessed at the Internet Archive and is readily readable there.

If you are a student of the historic BCP, I think you will like The Teacher’s Prayer Book.
