This service book for traditional Anglican Worship services contains all parts of the Liturgy, because the offcial Prayer Books includes only the most important liturgical parts and seduce maybe the celebrant to organize the several worship services according to his own discretion. In order to help the celebrant and to prevent liturgical abuse we publish the first part of a service book, with all notes and guidance that the celebrant needs. This Anglican Missal and Service Book is based on the Holy Scripture and on the Book of Common Prayer 1928. The BCP 1928 is widely acclaimed as one of the greatest books ever written in the English language. It sets the standard for worship throughout the so called continuing or traditional Anglican Churches around the world. The 1928 Book of Common Prayer stands in direct line of descent from Thomas Cranmer's Book of Common Prayer, and as such, its collects preserve the beauty of Archbishop Cranmer's original prose.
