Editorial Reviews

The reader who has prayed within a liturgical tradition can enjoy this minutely detailed case study for creating uncommonly beautiful and effective worship. Those who read in order to reform their own local congregation’s liturgy, or even fine-tune it, will judge this ‘how-to’ guide as readable, instructive, practical and, finally, invigorating.
Religion and the Arts

Giles describes ideas for the liturgy that can be used or adapted in many settings, explores basic principles, and offers detailed guidelines for developing inspiring liturgies. The text is illustrated with many photographs, provides a selection of supplementary and alternative prayers, and suggests art and liturgical resources.

Pastoral Music

This book is a timely, tested, and indispensable resource for local faith communities and diocesan liturgical commissions.
Pastoral Music

Giles begins with principles, then how to manage the change, and lastly the Eucharist. Individuals interested in such changes will have to study their situation and determine how to adapt such changes in their church. For them Liturgy will come to life! Read this book to let you experience why this happens.
Catholic Library World

For Giles, as it should be for every Christian, liturgy unleashes power and passion. And this great work of the community becomes its play taking all beyond time and space that we might better live our present.
Catholic Books Review

From start to finish Giles fulfills his goal to offer ‘a book for practitioners rather than scholars’ (3).
Catholic Books Review

Giles is not a solo voice advocating change; liturgical renewal scholars and practitioners are widely cited. Perhaps, as he suggests, one should go and see.
