Excerpt from The History of the Prayer Book of the Church of England
OF the Prayer Book, by far the greater part con sists of the very words of Scripture - as, the Psalms, the Epistles and Gospels, the Scriptural Hymns, and other select passages. The remainder of it expresses the sentiments and the spirit of Scripture, generally in Scriptural language.1 It might be well if this was borne in mind by those who disparage the Liturgy of the Church of Eng land, and treat it with neglect, perhaps with con tempt. Let such persons consider whether they do not expose themselves to the censure of the Apostle: He therefore that despiseth, despiseth not man, but God.2.
