    Somewhat dryer than the other books in the "Welcome to ..." series, this is nonetheless a very useful exploration of the history of the BCP as well as a guide to its navigation and use. I definitely recommend it for those who are new to Anglicanism or the use of breviaries from other traditions.

    A bit on the dry side but a great handbook on the Book of Common Prayer.
