This book "is more than just an accessible dictionary of Christian terms; it is a primer on the Christian faith and a touchstone for further exploration. Dealing primarily with matters of content, William Sydnor uses a pastoral approach to his definitions and explanations, creating what is often a mini-sermon on the meaning and significance of a single word or term."

"[By] William Sydnor"
"Revised edition of The Story of the Real Prayer Book".
"Copyright 1978 by William Sydnor. Copyright Revised Edition 1997 by William Sydnor". -- verso of t.-p.
Includes bibliographical references (p. [150]-154) and index.
"The predecessor of this book, now titled 'The Prayer Book Through the Ages', first saw the light of day in answer to a protest nearly two decades ago. The protester wanted a return to 'the real Prayer Book services'. He meant the 1928 Book. The answer to him was 'The Story of the Real Prayer Book' in which the eight revisions of the Book of Common Prayer since 1549 were described -- why each revision was necessary, what was changed, added, omitted, but more importantly, what was always retained in the 'new' book. 'The Story of the Real Prayer Book' was argumentative, intended to justify the appearance of the 1979 Book. This revised edition intends to take a more temperate view of the whole history of the Book of Common Prayer during its centuries of use". -- Preface.
