"One barrier to deeper understanding of historic worship practices is the complex terminology that these practices generated. This volume is a convenient place to begin the search for not only definitions, but also for empathetic and discerning understanding."
"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."
