The Book of Common Prayer

This afternoon, I came across James Wood’s wonderful article “God Talk: the Book of Common Prayer at three hundred and fifty.” It’s rare to find an article that talks about the liturgy–any liturgy–with warmth. Even better, the article recalls the historical context–and its literary echoes, from Shakespeare to Jane Austen and beyond.
