A superb reference book with people, places, histories and doctrines in a revised edition.
This distinguished and comprehensive dictionary should stand as the definitive reference work on all aspects of liturgical practice and belief for many years to come. While maintaining the best traditions of WJK's dictionaries, it also supersedes and replaces its predecessor edited by J. G. Davies and first published by Westminster Press in 1986. Several years in the making and completely rewritten, The New Westminster Dictionary of Liturgy & Worship incorporates the collective expertise and wisdom of today's foremost liturgists and scholars of liturgy and covers all the most important topics in the field. Systematically organized and alphabetically arranged for maximum ease of use, the book also includes up-to-date bibliographies for further reading and research.
Whether one wishes to use this dictionary as a standard tool for research, as a resource for worship and preaching, or simply for one's own interest, this authoritative volume should be every minister's, student's, or layperson's indispensable first port of call.
