1979 Book of Common Prayer

Internet Browser Edition

 

This Internet Browser edition ("HTML" edition) of the 1979 Book of Common Prayer consists of five files (About.htm, Bcp.htm, Contents.htm, Cover.jpg, and Index.htm), which must all lie in the same folder. The name of the folder does not matter. An internet browser capable of reading frame pages (such as Microsoft Explorer or Mozilla Firefox) is required.

 

The five files are provided for download as: 

1. a .ZIP file. You must then use a program on your computer (such as WinZip, PKZIP, or Stuffit) to extract the five files to a folder, or as:

2. a self-extracting .exe file (useful for a Windows Computer). Double-clicking on the .exe file in Windows will extract the five files to a default folder named "BCP_HTML."

 

To use this edition, simply open Index.htm with your internet browser (for example, by double-clicking on Index.htm in Windows). You may find it convenient to create a desktop shortcut to Index.htm.

 

Note that this Internet Browser version is intended for use off-line on a personal computer. Several on-line Internet Browser / HTML versions are available elsewhere -- please see the list at Charles Wohlers' Book of Common Prayer web site.

 

To download the .ZIP or self-extracting .exe file of this Internet Browser edition, right click on the underlined link and choose "Save Target As" or "Save Link as."  The latest revision is dated 2/27/05.
