Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Stake, a Presbyterian pastor, defines 150 terms associated with Christian worship. He states that his book ``is written from the perspective of the Reformed tradition'' and ``reflects a certain theological slant tilted in the direction of John Calvin.'' The New Westminster Directory of Liturgy and Worship , edited by J.G. Davies (Westminster, 1986), is more ambitious, scholarly, and balanced, but Stake's dictionary is more personal, warm, and approachable for the lay reader. Stake makes ample use of cross references. His book is a good choice for undergraduate libraries, and others seeking an introductory dictionary on this topic may also consider.-- Richard S. Watts, San Bernardino Cty. Lib., Cal.
