The Pocket Dictionary of Liturgy and Worship by Brett Scott Provance is a compact yet valuable (and inexpensive) resource for leaders, students, and lay-people of the church who want to renew, check, or expand their knowledge concerning matters of liturgy and worship. It is part of a series of pocket dictionaries that IVP has published. It provides over 600 entries concerning people, history, forms, dates, denominations, holidays, seasons and styles that shape church liturgy and worship service across the lines of denominations and throughout the history of the church. A system of cross references, table of abbreviations, and a detailed bibliography are included to help in further study. This is by no means a complete and detailed reporting of all that is Christian liturgy and worship, but it does provide clarification on what and who has most impacted worship in the church from its birth to the modern day, and it does provide a "springboard" for further research. It is a helpful reference for every leader, student, and lay-person to keep on his or her bookshelf.
