I am a parish priest of the Church of England, serving in rural Yorkshire, in an area settled by the Romans, and more seriously by the Saxons. Married to Ann, a deacon, my Rural Dean and the Diocesan Director of Ordinands.
Formerly a teacher of philosophy, I have written a great deal over the past thirty years or so – articles, booklets, lectures and a couple of actual books – and now seems a good time to turn some of this material into ebooks.
The Holy Communion service from the Second Prayer Book of 1552 was one of the most vigorous liturgical experiments ever. This book aims to reveal its extraordinary character, too often hidden behind the later 1662 service. A clear text, with copious and careful notes, this book will guide both priest and student who want to grasp the wonderful vitality of this revolutionary text.
