"First edition c1979 the Seabury Press, Inc. Revised edition c2000 by Morehouse Publishing." -- verso of t.-p.
"Our intention [in the first 1979 edition] was to offer to the Episcopal Church a basic book on the liturgy that would be useful to laity and clergy of the church with regard to the history and theology of Christian, and specifically Anglican, worship. We also wanted the book to help readers to understand more fully the pastoral and theological implications of the then proposed Book of Common Prayer. .... The first edition was reprinted several times, and demand for the book, especially for use in programs of lay education and for candidates studying in seminary, has never ceased. We were therefore delighted when Morehouse approached us about the possibility of publishing a second edtion. Unfortunately, Professor Price died before our work of revision was complete. We had been in consultation by telephone about the changes that Morehouse Publishing had requested. In only a few cases were revisions or clarifications of fact made for this new edition. Otherwise, our concern was to make modest but necessary editorial changes, including references to the `new' Prayer Book." -- Preface [to Revised Edition], pp. vi-vii.

"In this volume, we have tried to do three things. In the first place, we have tried to be informative. We have sought to provide data about the development of Christian worship, and particularly Anglican worship. .... Our second purpose is really an outgrowth of the first. We hav tried to set the new Book of Common Prayer firmly in the context of this theological and historical development. We have not intended to produce a commentary on the new Prayer Book, but it is obviously impossible to discuss worship in the American Episcopal Church today without saying a great deal about the new book. .... The third goal of this book is by all odds the most important. We hope that it will help its readers better to understand the intimate, indissoluble, and mutally influential relationship between worship and living." -- Preface, pp. xiii-xiv.
