Westminster John Knox Press Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany: Liturgies and Prayers for Public Worship--Book and CD-ROM

Preeminent hymn writer and liturgist Brian Wren offers thisnew collection of worship resources suitablefor use in a variety of worship traditions. These theologically sound and creative worship resourcesinclude orders of worship (liturgies) and worship elements such as litanies, calls to worship, thanksgivings,and affirmations of faith, all crafted to encourage rhythmic public responses during worship.

The book is Scripture based and Scripture oriented. All the worship materials are compatible with theRevised Common Lectionary, but during the Advent season in particular churches that do not use theRCL often use a number of the lectionary's Scripture selections. This book can therefore be used inchurches that do not use the RCL, as well as in those that do. Additional features include a Scripture index, a topical index listing items that can be used on other occasions during the church year, and a searchable CD-ROM.

I found a lot of good information and some good ideas in this book. The services described in it tend to be very dramatic and lean toward the theatrical. Most are just not practical for a small membership church.
