A New Resource For Introducing The Tradition Of Common Prayer
Church planters are always looking for good resources to help disciple their people. As an Anglican church planter, there are very few introductions to the historic common prayer tradition. Our tradition has enriched the faith of millions of Christians around the world for hundreds of years and still has the power to offer a vibrant, healthy, life-giving faith for our generation and generations to come.
Winfield Bevins, Canon of Church Planting for the Diocese of the Carolinas has written a new book Our Common Prayer: A Field Guide to the Book of Common Prayer as a fresh and accessible introduction to the common prayer tradition for a new generation of Christians.
Our Common Prayer is ideal for churches and church plants who want to introduce their members to the Book of Common Prayer and can be used in a variety of ways: for individual private devotion, for small groups, and can be used in youth and young adult ministry.
What others are saying about the book:
“Winfield Bevins has given us a warm and inviting introduction to the Prayer Book worship tradition. I hope that Our Common Prayer will help many others find this treasure, as well.”
The Rt. Rev’d John Guernsey, Diocese of the Mid-Atlantic
“Dr. Bevins is to be commended for making the riches of Cranmer’s daily prayer cycle fresh, appealing and, most importantly of all, easily available to a new generation. Now, more than ever, we all need divine help to have our hearts beat together with God’s and one another’s.”
Rev. Canon Dr. Ashley Null, Faculty of Divinity Cambridge University
“In this field guide, Winfield Bevins wonderfully and helpfully re-introduces the well worn path of faith found in the Book of Common Prayer to a new generation of Christians.”
The Rt. Rev’d Steve Wood, Diocese of the Carolinas
“Count me among those who use this book… and give many copies away!”
Canon David H. Roseberry, Christ Church, Plano, TX
