The Diocese of the Carolina’s is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a book release for Winfield Bevins’ new book, Our Common Prayer: A Field Guide to the Book of Common Prayer on October 15-16th in conjunction with the two day retreat and conference on Thomas Cranmer and Contemporary Anglican Worship with Ashley Null. Winfield Bevins is rector of Church of the Outer Banks and Canon of Church Planting for the Diocese of the Carolinas.
Our Common Prayer is a fresh and accessible introduction to the common prayer tradition for contemporary Christians. The historic common prayer tradition has enriched the faith of millions of Christians around the world for hundreds of years and still has the power to offer a vibrant, healthy, life-giving faith for our generation and generations to come. The book is now available on Amazon. You can also watch a video trailer to Our Common Prayer here.
Several leading Anglicans have endorsed the book including, Ashley Null who says in the foreword, “Dr. Bevins is to be commended for making the riches of Cranmer’s daily prayer cycle fresh, appealing and, most importantly of all, easily available to a new generation.” Bishop Steve Wood says, “In this field guide, Winfield Bevins wonderfully and helpfully re-introduces the well worn path of faith found in the Book of Common Prayer to a new generation of Christians.”
The book will be available throughout the event, which begins Tuesday, October 15 at 8:30 a.m. with worship and concludes on October 16 at 5:00 p.m. Over the course of two days, Dr. Null will deliver eight lectures on Cranmer and Contemporary Anglican Worship.
