Ceremonies of the Eucharist: A Guide to Celebration

Editorial Reviews

Thomas J. Talley
Out of his deep familiarity with both liturgical tradition and the 1979 Book of Common Prayer, Howard Galley has provided a guide to the use of the Prayer Book that is sensitive both to its liturgical and theological backgrounds and to the practical and pastoral issues surrounding public worship today.
Ormonde Plater
This is more than a mere manual of ceremony. Based on a deep knowledge of the history of worship, Galley shows us that liturgy is living action, the work of an assembled people of God. Read, enjoy, and use this book.
Lloyd Patterson
Howard Galley’s book is an important guide to the use of the Book of Common Prayer and provides historical and liturgical perspectives on the actions of both officiants and congregation. An informative and practical treatment of the ceremonial tradition.
Richard F. Grien
An absolutely superb book. I highly recommend it.
