Colin Buchanan has for over forty years collected and edited eucharistic liturgies from round the Anglican Communion, always striving for a comprehensive, even exhaustive, presentation of the liturgical texts, so as to provide a reliable set of reference works for scholars and others engaged in liturgical research and/or actual revision.
This is his 4th collection and 30 years have elapsed since the previous volume. Recent years have seen many new developments and many new eucharistic rites, like Common Worship, which has encouraged the use of varying texts in worship. This volume brings these together, displaying them in a standardized way, and with introductory material. Clergy and worship leaders will find in this a rich source of prayers and other liturgical texts that they can draw on.
COLIN BUCHANAN is a well known figure in the Church of England and in the Anglican Communion. He served on the Liturgical Commission and founded Grove Booklets which continues to provide essential introductions to many topical issues for clergy and laity. Previously the Bishop of Aston and now retired, he lives in Leeds.
