Stir Up, O Lord: A companion to the collects, epistles and Gospels in the Book of Common Prayer
Carey's expositions in this book of the biblical readings and Prayer Book collects is careful, thorough, and informed by a well-populated theological and cultural hinterland. Written for lay and ordained people, it brings renewed meaning to the words of Cranmer and his colleagues and is a good starting point for sermons or personal contemplation on readings and prayers through the liturgical year.

The Lectionary of the Book of Common Prayer is a product of the theology and politics of its time, not just in the composition of its Collects but also in its choice of Epistles and Gospels. Carey is prepared to take on the texts and argue robustly with them and the ways in which we have become accustomed to reading them. He is concerned to see the Anglican spiritual tradition in adult conversation with what it means to be human in the world today, not in the world of the 16th and 17th centuries. He thus challenges the easy spirituality that endorses our complacent acceptance of the status quo today. Many of the issues which divided medieval Catholicism from Protestant reform now divide worshippers in the Anglican Communion and the Church of England, so that it is unwise to assume that all of those who read the AV and BCP are theologically and temperamentally Protestant.
