"The Orders of Service contained in this Study are essentially identical with those published in 'Prayer Book Studies 22'. Thus, the rationale set forth in the Introduction to that publication applies to this Study as well. Trial use has demonstrated the desirability of rearranging the various elements of each Order of Service .... It is hoped that the new arrangement will make the Offices, as printed here, easier to follow, without obscuring their structure. There were three other sources of difficulty in giving trial use to the Daily Office: First, the absence of a new lectionary ... secondly, the absence of a complete Psalter; and thirdly, the delay in the publication of 'Prayers, Thanksgivings, and Litanies; (Prayer Book Studies 25). The delay in producing all these materials was unavoidable, but these defects have now been remedied". -- Preface.
Contents divided into two main sections: Morning and Evening Prayer -- Lectionary for the Daily Office.
