The thirteen fascinating essays in this book bring together theoretical articles and practical planning strategies to create a how-to guide for worship. The editors have compiled the work of eighteen lay people and clergy actively serving the Church today in a variety of ministries. Article topics include style in worship, liturgical space, the role of the arts, dance, small church issues, etc. The planning strategies describe how to form a parish worship committee, to evaluate worship, to welcome children, to design service leaflets, to compose intercessions, to celebrate the Triduum, etc.
The book carries the publisher's permission for non-commercial reprinting of articles for local parish use. It is ideal for instruction or discussion in the worship committee or parish study groups. (160 pp)
