FAQ #5 - Revising the Book of Common Prayer

Q. Is it true that The Book of Common Prayer is being revised to reflect more liberal theologies?

A. No. The Book of Common Prayer has not changed since 1979 and is the official doctrine and liturgy of The Episcopal Church. The book can only be revised by an act of General Convention. There has been no authorization given for its revision nor is one expected at the next General Convention. Additionally, the last time there was a revision authorized it took twelve years to complete. It's unlikely that we would see any revision of the Book of Common Prayer within the next twenty years.
