Description

The Book of Common Prayer is a liturgical resource used by members of the Episcopal Church (Anglican Church) in the United States.

The full title of the Book of Common Prayer is "The Book of Common Prayer and Administration of the Sacraments and other Rites and Ceremonies of the Church." As it sounds, the BCP includes the common liturgies for all the various rites and practices of the church, including the Morning and Evening Offices, the Eucharist, Ministration to the Sick, Reconciliation of a Penitent, and many others.

The original Book of Common Prayer is one of the major works of English Literature. Since its introduction in the sixteenth century it has had an enormous influence on everything written in English. It has gone through a number of revisions, both in England and in the other countries of the Anglican Communion. This application is based on The Episcopal Church's 1979 BCP.

Note that this electronic version is NOT approved by the 
Custodian of the Standard Book of Common Prayer. 

Also note that this application is in no way officially associated with the The Episcopal Church or the Church Publishing Corporation. It is a private transcription of the 1979 BCP taken from PUBLIC DOMAIN text.

This e-reader was engineered from the ground up to provide the best browsing experience. We hope you enjoy it!

Thanks to Bob Norris of Saint Luke's Newberry, SC for encouraging me to write this application.

Great App

:
I enjoy this App on my iPhone and my iPad. Comes in handy for my own spiritual life and as I minister to others. It is easy to use and well designed. I would suggest making another App for the Daily Office with Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer, Noon Day Prayer and Compline. If you incorporated the Biblical texts from the daily lectionary as well that would be perfect and an App I would be happy to pay for. Good work and I look forward to even better Apps in the future.

5/5 stars

Text size

:
This morning, I downloaded update 1.2 and was pleasantly surprised. The text size can now be changed. When I had complained about the small, unchangeable text size, I was assured that an update would include changeable text size. I can now enjoy reading my Book of Common Prayer using the iBCP application on my iPod Touch. Thank you for this beautiful gift.

4/5 stars

Very good but could be better.

:
This app is a very good presentation of the Book of Common Prayer, although, as one reviewer of version 1.2 observed, there are no direct links from morning prayer to the Psalms. As another reviewer of version 1.2 stated, a bookmark function and sub-indexing would improve it.

An app that integrates the Prayer Book with the calendar and the Episcopal edition of the Revised Common Lectionary would be most useful. The Roman Catholic app iMissal is a good pattern for such a comprehensive liturgical app.
