A Liturgy for Our Time?

by The Editors

In the following interview, the Rev. Canon Dr. Ashley Null and the Rev. Gavin Dunbar sit down with the Lord Bishop of London, Richard Chartres, to discuss the 1662 Book of Common Prayer.

Gavin Dunbar asks the Rt. Rev. Chartres to speak about the historical development and transmission of the prayer book since 1662, in England and globally.

Chartres describes the symphony of Scripture woven throughout the Book of Common Prayer. He explains that the prayer book systematically presents the Biblical narrative in its entirety, using repetition in order to convey the whole counsel of God to the Church in its daily living.
