New for PocketBible: Book of Common Prayer (1979)

Posted on: April 9th, 2014 by Michelle Stramel 4 Comments

We’ve had numerous request over the years to publish the Book of Common Prayer. We now have available for use with PocketBible, the 1979 edition of this historical book, used primarily by the Episcopal church in the United States.

The Book of Common Prayer is a resource for communal worship and personal devotion. It includes rites and guides to administration of sacraments as well as a daily office, lectionary and more. Rather than the full Bible text that may be provided in a printed copy of this book, the PocketBible edition of this book links to Bible passages so you can view the text in your preferred Bible translation.

The Book of Common Prayer is available for use with PocketBible for iOS, Android OS, Windows Phone, Windows Store, Windows PC and Windows Mobile. It is also available for use with MyBible for Palm OS. The title lists for $4.99 and can be ordered at the Laridian website.

    Glad to see the BCP 1979 is available. While you are at it, why don’t you also put out the BCP 1928 which retains the beautiful language of ‘near’ Elizabethan English.

      Hi Brad, thanks for the request. We’ve had a few others ask for that one and glad to know that is something you are interested in as well.

    Which bibles is it keyed for?

    None of the descriptions I read implied the text
    Included the books that are “good reading”, but
    not canonical, and as such included in the liturgy.

      Jonathon, it provides links to Bible references so it will work with any PocketBible Bible you have installed. I’m not 100% sure what you mean by “good reading” books but if you mean apocryphal books, those links are included and if you own either the NRSV or NAB for PocketBible, you’ll be able to link to those readings as well.
