Overview

This ambitious undertaking gathers in one volume all the important elements of the seven Supplemental Liturgical Resources published earlier and now revised following extensive use throughout the church. It is useful to ministers and congregations in planning and leading worship. The book provides orders of worship and liturgical texts for each Sunday and for every festival and season throughout the year, and includes the Lord's Supper, baptism, daily prayer, marriage, funeral, and pastoral liturgies. The lectionary, a collection of prayers for a variety of uses, and the psalms, are also included. This practical and valuable book will certainly be the church's principal resource for planning and leading worship for decades to come.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This book of liturgical texts for American Presbyterians revises and replaces The Worshipbook (1970) as well as Book of Common Worship (1906, 1932, 1946). It is a wonderful resource, providing a wide variety of options for services on the Lord's Day with word and optional sacrament (Holy Communion). It gives seasonal and special day liturgies; forms for baptism and reaffirmation of the baptismal covenant; a psalter (127 of the biblical psalms); special prayers for various occasions; and both a Sunday/festival and a daily lectionary as well as a liturgical calendar. It uses inclusive language not only for people but also for God, making this a book other Christian bodies will want to study carefully and emulate. Essential for seminary and large academic libraries but highly recommended for all libraries.
