Prologue
In response to a query from Bishop Peers, it was noted that General Synod in 1965 authorized the Revised Standard Version for Lessons at Morning or Evening Prayer and that General Synod, 1967, authorized either Revised Standard Version or New English Bible for the Epistles and Gospels at the Eucharist. (The New English Bible could not be authorized for Morning and Evening Prayer as the Old Testament was not completed.)

Prologue
Bishop Berry presented the following report of the Doctrine and Worship Committee on Biblical translations recommended for public reading.
BIBLICAL TRANSLATIONS
"In drawing up a list of biblical translations recommended for public reading, the Task Force began by generating criteria by which a translation might be excluded from such a list. Translations excluded by these criteria were noted. The exclusion of a translation as not suitable for public reading in the Anglican Church of Canada does not mean that the translation is necessarily unsuitable for study purposes.
I. Criteria for exclusion of a particular translation
i. Paraphrases, e.g. The Living Bible, J.B. Philips, Barclay, Cotton Patch.
ii. Translations made for particular doctrinal purposes rather than rendering the original text, e.g. The Living Bible, Jehovah's Witnesses.
iii. Translations which are translations of translations, e.g. The Living Bible, Jerusalem Bible (1966).
iv. Translations which replace words through "computer search" rather than by examination of each text, e.g. NCC Inclusive translation.
v. Translations from another culture, e.g. New English Bible, Cotton Patch.
vi. Abridgements/harmonies, e.g. Reader's Digest.
vii. Translations in colloquial rather than contemporary English, e.g. New English Bible
II. Recommendations
The Task Force recommends the following translations for public reading in the Anglican Church of Canada (by date of publication).
- King James (Authorized Version) 1611
- Revised Standard Version 1952 (and its revision as Common Bible)
- New American Bible 1970
- Today's English Version (Good News) 1976
- New International Version 1978
- New Jerusalem 1985
Selection
The Task Force suggests that local communities consider the following criteria when choosing a translation suitable for their needs and purposes.
- the nature of the local community, its cultural profile, education levels, etc.
- the fidelity of the translations to the original text.
- no gratuitous use of exclusive language.
- intelligible in terms of contemporary English use.
- natural use of language.
- coherence with the language of the liturgy itself.
- does the translation give help with the pronunciation of proper nouns ?
No one criterion is a sufficient basis for a community's choice."

Prologue
Moved by Brig. A.E. McB. Bell-Irving, seconded by The Ven. D.P. Watney
"That Whereas, to quote the Original Preface (1549) of the Book of Common Prayer, 'St. Paul would have such language spoken to the people in the Church, as they might understand, and have profit by hearing the same';
"And Whereas it has been the endeavour of the compilers and revisers of the Canadian Book of Common Prayer, in the quoting of Holy Scripture, to use such translations as by common consent are most acceptable to, and understandable by, those who are to worship with the book;
"Now Therefore Be It Resolved That this General Synod call to the attention of the Prayer Book Revision Committee the New English Bible recently published, and suggest that consideration be given by the Committee to the adoption of this translation for all quotations from the New Testament in subsequent editions of the Canadian Book of Common Prayer; and that similar consideration be given in regard to the quotations from the Old Testament as and when the Old Testament New English Bible Translation becomes available.
Text
That the motion of Brig. AE. McB. Bell-Irving regarding the use of the new English Bible in subsequent editions of the Canadian Book of Common Prayer be referred to the Upper House. CARRIED in both Houses.
Notes
The Synod stood for a suitable prayer by the Primate, commemorating the 300th anniversary of the Prayer Book of 1662.

"The Church, through the compilers of the BAS, has offered Anglicans a new lectionary for the celebration of the daily eucharist. It is strides ahead of the one found in the Book of Common Prayer. But the journey continues. There are elements of the lectionary which remain awkward and unfinished."

Notes
"The public reading of Scripture has been a part of Christian liturgy since the very earliest days of the ancient Church. It is the bedrock upon which our faith is built and its phrases echo throughout our prayers and songs and rituals which we useweek by week. .... This issue of Liturgy Canada begins with a forceful critique of the RCL [Revised Common Lectionary] by Dr. Walter Deller ... Four other people [Kevin Flynn, John Hill, Richard Leggett and Debbie Palmer] who use and teach liturgy then comment on Dr. Deller's article. Walter is then given the last word in which to respond to the responders."

Notes
The author notes that the 1995 General Synod approved the Revised Common Lectionary (RCL) for use by Canadian Anglicans where permission of the Diocesan bishop may be obtained. "But there is little reason to suspect that it has changed drastically from its predecessor as found in the BAS. And it is salutary for us to remember just what defects exist in that lectionary which compelled so many parishes in Canada to continue to use the old lectionary of the BCP."

Notes
"The following paper was given to an Evangelical Society several years ago. It is, as such, somewhat polemical in its approach to the question it addresses. In spite of the author's anxieties that it may give a `BAS Society' impression, I have included it because it touches on the theological concerns of many Anglicans, not just about the BAS, but about the renewal of the liturgy in general. I found it most helpful. Perhaps another reader could write about Anglo-Catholic witness after the BAS. D.H.S."
