In May Church House Publishing are launching the Church of England's new Daily Office Book under the title Common Worship Daily Prayer. This book has been modelled on Continuum's bestselling Celebrating Common Prayer. To coincide with the launch we are launching Celebrating Daily Prayer, an updated pocket edition of Celebrating Common Prayer. In May 2005 The Church of England published the definitive version of its new Daily Office book, Common Worship Daily Prayer. The new office book is based on The Society of St Francis' bestselling Celebrating Common Prayer, published by Continuum. Celebrating Daily Prayer is the compact edition of Common Worship Daily Prayer and the new edition of the pocket edition of Celebrating Common Prayer. Whilst retaining all the essential features of the full office book, Celebrating Daily Prayer condenses Common Worship Daily Prayer into a user-friendly, portable format, ideal for personal use. The main features of Celebrating Daily Prayer are the integration of the Psalms and Collects into the office setting and the inclusion of a short reading for each day, making this edition particularly suitable for personal prayer. All the texts in Celebrating Daily Prayer are in line with recent revisions to the Common Worship Daily Prayer.
David Stancliffe is the Bishop of Salisbury and Head of the Liturgical Commission. His publications include works on liturgy, worship and the Christian year. He is editor and co-author of Celebrating Common Prayer, a popular daily office book which has appeared in several versions.
In June 2003 he published The Pilgrim Prayerbook (revised in 2007), a structured anthology of Christian prayer with orders for daily worship and themed collections of a wide range of material.
His newest books are God's Pattern in which he retraces the disciples' walk to Emmaus and relates it to contemporary Christian life and practice, and The Lion Companion to Church Architecture. Other publications include Women & Episcopy: A Response to Cardinal Kasper and The Promise of His Glory.
