1928 Book of Common Prayer

The 1928 Book of Common Prayer served the Episcopal Church for fifty years, from 1928 until 1978. The 1928 revision was very extensive - perhaps the most radical U. S. prayer book revision until that of 1979. Some of the many changes from the previous 1892 book included dropping liturgies of rather outdated theology, such as the Visitation of Prisoners; the three baptism rites were combined into one; and several changes were made to the Communion service, including further deemphasis of the Decalogue, and rearrangement of the Lord's Prayer and the Prayer of Humble Access back to the position they had in the Prayer Book of 1549.

Below you will find links to smaller and very specific portions of the 1928 Book of Common Prayer. If you prefer, you can download a larger file that includes the entire revision in one complete document.
