Book excerpt: This study examines the 1892 revision of the Book of Common Prayer historically, focusing on its reflection of the issues confronting the Church in the late-19th century and on the process by which it was adopted. It attempts to uncover the place of the revision in the evolving self-understanding of the Episcopal Church. The 1892 revision represented a stunning departure from previous attitudes about the immutability of the prayer book, helped redefine the Church's ethos at the start of a new century, and was the sine qua non for future revision.
