Book of Prayer for the Church and the Home; with Selections from the Psalms. Revised edition. Boston: Universalist Publishing House, 1894.


This Book of Prayer is designed to be a help in the offices of religion in the church and in the home. As originally published, it included many instructions and prayers which are now omitted, the aim being, in this revised edition, to provide simple services of worship for those who desire them and to give suggestion, if not formal direction, to those who are called to the various ministration of religion, in public and in private. The book was urgently called for, else it might not have seemed best to add another to the many excellent manuals of devotion already in use.
