A Great Cloud of Witnesses

Product Description

The 78th General Convention (2015) approved a significant revision to the church's calendar of saints. Accordingly, A Great Cloud of Witnesses (GCW) supersedes Holy Women, Holy Men. It centers on the feasts of our Lord and other major feasts listed in The Book of Common Prayer and provides an additional calendar of optional commemorations that represents the breadth of the Christian family story.

GCW reflects the lively experience of holiness, especially on the level of the local community .GCW is accordingly a useful tool for learning about the history of the church and identifying those who have inspired and challenged us from the time of the New Testament to the present. 

Each entry includes a biographical narrative of the person or people, highlighting the significance of their life and witness. A devotional collect is provided in both Rite ! and Rite II language and set of indexing "tags" suggests how the entry fits into the broader scope of Christian history and delineates the Christian gifts and virtues that may have inspired the person's ministries.l
