How did we get to where we are today with Anglican liturgy and Common Worship?
This study was written in 1979, considering the revision of the Prayer book since the 1960s and the formation of the Alternative Service Book (ASB). Roger Beckwith concentrated on the revision of the most controversial of the services in the Prayer Book, Holy Communion to show the doctrinal implications of the reform. He also discusses what steps the church would be wise to take next. This short book raises issues important to our current liturgy as well such as issues of doctrine and intelligible language.
