Specific chapters for both Lent and Easter include:
• Calls to worship
• Common prayers
• Prayers of dedication
• Prayers of confession and pardon
• Gospel dialogues
"These resources grew out of my continued interest in the whole use of scripture in weekly worship," Craig M. Sweet writes. "The dialogue use of scripture adds an extra dimension to the 'dramaturgical' experience of worship."
In the gospel dialogue section are scripture readings based upon various lectionary texts. Dialogues are offered for Ash Wednesday, the Sundays of Lent, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter.
