Publisher's Description

The Collect is a form of prayer which is a core part of the liturgical worship of most Christian traditions, certainly in the Christian West, yet, relatively little work has been done to reflect on the use of this common form of prayer in different traditions, and the Protestant tradition in particular. In this representative collection of essays Bridget Nichols draws together a range of leading scholars who reflect on the history and the development of this form of prayer common to all churches of the western tradition. As well as offering a historical introduction the book offers reflections on the collect in the Methodist tradition, in Baptist worship, in Scandinavian Lutheran traditions, in American Lutheranism and on collect writing today.
Contributors include: Jeremy Haselock, Karen Westerfield-Tucker, Michael Perham, John Lampard and David Kennedy.

Editorial Reviews

... the essays form a fascinating look at the history of the influence of various denominational liturgies on other traditions. One comes away, the book with an enriched understanding of the liturgical renewal movement and the underlying unity that all of these Christian traditions share reflected in their diverse worship contexts. This focused study on one particular prayer form opens a window into the liturgical theology and worship practices across western Christendom.
