"The Last Catholic Book"

That's how G. K. Chesterton described "the liturgical and literary masterpiece" remembered here — Anglicans celebrate Book of Common Prayer’s 350th. For me, it was in many ways my first Catholic book; the 1662 volume radicalized my prayer life after stumbling across it in an out-of-the-way used bookstore in Jefferson, Oregon.
