The Revised Orders of Holy Communion: Comparison and Comments

John W Fraser

This is a comparison between revisions in the Churches of England and Scotland. The Book of Common Prayer 1662, Alternative Series 3 1971, 1973, The Book of Common Order 1940 and The Divine Service 1973 are considered. The JLG's 'possible basic pattern' is referred to. These are set out in an appendix. One conclusion is that the 1973 order has become clumsier and heavier by the adjustments made.
