Publisher's Description

Biblical proclamation is central to Christian worship. The Bible witnesses to the foundational experiences of the Church. Its proclamation invites worshippers into encounter with Christ, the living Word. "The Bible in Worship" seeks to make visible how the Bible is encountered in the worship of mainstream Western churches.

Focusing in turn on the Roman Catholic, Reformed and Anglican traditions, Victoria Raymer offers a detailed and lively consideration of the contemporary practices of proclamation in each, considers their respective patterns of reading the Bible as part of public worship, and reflects on the place the Bible takes in daily prayer. Raymer also draws our attention towards the role the psalms play in contemporary formal liturgy, and offers a chapter on how the Bible is weaved into less formal forms of worship, including contemporary sung worship.

Offering a truly holistic study of the scripture in worship, the book will resource readers to reflect on how proclamation invites response in understanding and resolve, and to consider how it might do so more effectively.

Editorial Reviews

'A rich and timely exploration of how the Bible forms Christians by the way it is used in worship - a gift for preachers, liturgists and worship leaders'
'Vicky's meticulous scholarship, attention to detail and narrative illustration are a delight, and she bridges many traditions, challenging partisan assumptions. This book will be invaluable to researchers but perhaps more importantly, may serve to refresh worn approaches to the use of scripture in public worship.'

"This is a fascinating book bringing together an amazing amount of material about the use of the Bible in worship and the response to it. It will be of interest to liturgical scholars, those who lead worship and anyone who struggles to understand the dynamic behind the choice and the juxtaposition of readings. It will have a special interest to ecumenists who seek to imagine the rich diversity of liturgical life that will blossom in visible communion, which expresses the insights and experience of different Traditions and reflects the theological convergence of ecumenical conversations, not least of all the multilateral text, Baptism, Eucharist and Ministry. The thought provoking concluding reflections in, Epilogue: Surprises, underline, among other things, the strong reciprocal link between faithful expectant hearing and faithful action, the liturgy after the liturgy. How good it would be to complement this examination based on Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Reformed and Anglican practice with that of the Orthodox and Pentecostal Traditions. The book deserves to be widely read."
