This complement to the popular “how to do it” publications—which guided the move to Common Worship—offers a serious and scholarly commentary on the whole range of Common Worship texts. There is a historical survey of the origins and development of each rite from New Testament times, through the Middle Ages, the Reformation, and up to the present day. This is followed by a detailed commentary on the rite as a whole, and each part of it—including a comparison with the ASB and other contemporary liturgies, and a short list of books for further reading.

Companion to Common Worship, vol. 2

  • Author: Paul Bradshaw
  • Publisher: SPCK
  • Publication Date: 2006

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Now that the process of completing Common Worship has come to an end—and following the success of A Companion to Common Worship: Volume 1—Professor Bradshaw and a team of scholars have produced this greatly anticipated second volume.

When Common Worship was introduced, a need for a serious and scholarly commentary on the whole range of its texts became apparent. A Companion to Common Worship provides a historical survey of the origins and development of many rites from New Testament times, through the Middle Ages and Reformation, up to the present day. The parts of each rite are examined in a detailed commentary that includes a comparison with the ASB and other contemporary liturgies, followed by a short list of books for further reading.

Subjects covered include: daily prayer, the weekday lectionary, times and seasons, new patterns for worship, rites on the way, wholeness and healing, reconciliation and restoration, marriage, funeral, ordination services, and public worship with communion by extension.
