Notes
"A Canadian university professor has discovered that the Prayer for the Monarch, contained in the 1662 'Book of Common Prayer' (BCP) and retained by many provinces, in one form or another, was written by Katherine Parr, the last wife of Henry VIII, and selected for use in the BCP by Queen Elizabeth I. Carleton University Professor Micheline White made her 'accidental' discovery while researching one of Parr's ladies-in-waiting. She came across a book of prayers published by Parr, which included a prayer for the king that struck a remarkable similarity to the prayer still used in the BCP".

"[By] Dewi Morgan, Rector of St. Bride's, Fleet Street, London, formerly Editorial Secretary, Society for the Propagation of the Gospel".
"With a Preface by Bishop Stephen Bayne, Executive Officer of the Anglican Communion".
"First Published 1963. Copyright Dewi Morgan 1963. Published simultaneously by SCM Press Ltd., London and Morehouse-Barlow Co., New York". -- verso of t.-p.
Includes bibliographical references.
"The background of this book is the turbulent world of the 1960s, and the ecumenical revolution within the Christian churches. Amid so much change, what is the role of the Anglican Communion ? To put it better: what use has God for Anglicans. The author frankly examines the source of authority for Anglicans, the administration of the mission in principle and practice, and the prayer and conversation that unite this curious family of 40 millions. .... This book ... is being published simultaneously by Morehouse-Barlow, New York, in connection with the international Anglican Congress in Toronto, August 1963. But it is a book which will keep its value until the next Lambeth Conference, to which it looks forward". -- back cover.
Contents: Preface / Stephen F. Bayne, Jr. -- Author's Foreword -- Authority and Freedom -- Regional and National Churches -- Is Anglicanism a 'Confession' ? -- The Administration of Mission: In Principle -- The Administration of Mission: Day by Day -- The Family Which Prays Together -- Family Ties -- Epilogue.
OTCH Note. The author makes particular mention of the Anglican Church of Canada in the Foreword, saying: "My indebtedness to others will be obvious and my inability to make acknowledgements manifest. But one act of recognition must be recorded. It is to the Missionary Society of the Anglican Church in Canada. It was the deep privilege of an invitation to lecture to a seminar in London, Ontario, which proved the final stimulus to put down on paper thoughts which for years had clamoured inside me for expression but which, aware of a sense of my own incompetence, I had so often decided to leave to others more capable (p. 12)".

"[FM] 2031".
"'The Book of Common Prayer' [is] more often called simply the 'Prayer Book'. This book is one of the most distinctive things about the Episcopal Church. It can also be among the most daunting for newcomers. The Prayer Book frames public worship in the Episcopal Church. Within that frame, much variety and experimentation may be found, but public worship rarely ventures outside that frame. The book is an anthology of prayers, hymns, biblical passages, and other texts arranged for public worship. It is useful for private devotion as well, but its purpose is to guide public, corporate worship (hence the word 'common' in its title)" (p. 2).
Contents: The Heart of the Prayer Book -- The Calendar -- The Daily Office -- Seasonal Texts -- Pastoral Offices -- Episcopal Services -- The Rest of the Prayer Book -- Does the Prayer Book Have a Future ? -- Where to Find It.

Notes
"Don Cherry is a "tough ex-hockey player and coach and controversial take-no-prisoner sports commentator, a fan of rough play and on-ice enforcers, who unrepentantly vents against pushy female reporters in male locker rooms and effete European hockey players". In addition, the "79-year-old Cherry is a lifelong Anglican and a member of a group dedicated to preserving worship in the noble cadences of the 'Book of Common Prayer'. 'It's language is almost Shakespeare', he says. 'The revised prayer book just doesn't capture the beautiful language of our Anglican past'." "But athletes aren't Cherry's only heroes. He has particular admiration for two Anglican priests whose lives intersected with his at his home parish of St. Paul's in Mississauga, Ont. They are the Rev. Ben Lochridge, a former U.S. marine who gave up a six-figure salary in New York to become an impecunious Anglican priest, and the Rev. Betty Jordan, who, after ministering to drug addicts and street people in downtown Toronto, joined St. Paul's and 'turned it around in four years' before moving to Guyana to serve the homeless there".

"By Dewi Morgan, Editorial Secretary of the S.P.G., Author of 'The Bishops Come to Lambeth'."
"Copyright A.R. Mowbray and Co. Limited, 1958. First published in 1958". -- verso of t.-p.

Includes index.
"The Conference of 1958 has been, for all the bishops who were privileged to attend it, an experience of fellowship, unity, and prayerful thought which they will never forget. But the resolutions and reports of that Conference will have little effect unless every congregation in the Anglican Communion studies them with care and thinks how they may be made effective in the life of each church. This book will help forward this process of world-wide thinking and action." -- Foreword.
This book is the outcome of a reading of the Lambeth Conference reports, and especially that of 1958, and an attempt to put them in their context. The context, of course, is as one writer sees it, and the book, with all its marks of haste, must accordingly be incomplete. Equally it must be incomplete because the insights vouchsafed to three hundred and ten very diverse bishops in six weeks of discussion cannot be reduced to one volume of this size. There are many areas of the discussion which have perforce had inadequate treatment. .... The first two chapters are concerned with significant features of to-day's world scene. The rest looks more specifically at those problems which Lambeth, 1958, considered and at the ways in which and the means by which Anglicanism aims to fulfil its vocation in the fifties of the twentieth century". -- Author's Intro.
