The liturgy of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer follows the ancient patterns of Jewish and Christian liturgies. The remarkable quality of the liturgy in the Book of Common Prayer is the biblical model that is its foundation. The model used is the biblical story of the Prodigal Son. The result is that there is a focus on repentance from sin and reconciliation to God.
