STR to Publish BCP Revision Conference Papers

On Feb. 22, the School of Theology's Sewanee Theological Review will publish a special volume—the papers that were presented during the two conferences on the possible revision of The Book of Common Prayer. The title of this issue is "The Once and Future Prayer Book" and is volume 61:1 in the STR series.

The first conference was held at The Virginia Theological Seminary in June and the second was held at the School of Theology in October, both in 2017. The conferences were held due to a directive from the 78th General Convention of The Episcopal Church to the Standing Committe on Liturgy and Music to explore a possible revision of the 1979 Book of Common Prayer.

Contributors to this volume are John Baldovin, James Farwell, Frank T. Griswold, Marcus G. Halley, Marilyn L. Haskel, Lizette Larson-Miller, Patrick Malloy, Ruth A. Meyers, Juan M.C. Oliver, Gail Ramshaw, Stephen R. Shaver, Bryan D. Spinks, Karen B. Westerfield Tucker, and James F. Turrell.

This special edition of the Sewanee Theological Review may be purchased without a subscription for $10, or if you already have a subscription to the STR, it will be mailed to you in early March.
