This text provides an overview of the Anglican Scriptural Canon which has guided North American Anglicans for over 460 years and examines whether the misgivings of conservative Episcopal clergy regarding the use of the Revised Common Lectionary are historically founded. Written to enrich the devotional life of Anglicans, the Holy Scriptures in this text have served as the catechism for over twenty generations of Anglicans. The readings are organized by historical period and liturgical season.
