Samuel Bray on the 1662 International Edition Book of Common Prayer

On this episode, we are privileged to have professor Samuel Bray join us to discuss his work on the 1662 Book of Common Prayer, International Edition. He discusses the contents of this edition, the aims in publishing the most influential Prayer Book in history, the philosophy behind editorial decisions, how that philosophy drastically contrasts with modern liturgical revisionists, and news on its use in parishes and missions.
