"Provance has done us all a favor by listing more than six hundred of the more commonly used terms associated with liturgy and worship, including many that are infrequently used. A four-page bibliography tops it off, enough to get you started into a more serious study. Best of all, this book really does fit in your pocket, right next to your cell phone and change!"
"Anyone beginning to explore liturgy and worship will find this resource a helpful complement to deeper research."
Leigh4 Stars Out Of 5November 24, 2009LeighThe 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.
