Author(s): The Liturgical Commission of the Church of England
Words for Worship brings together the most cherished prayers in the Church of England's liturgy, both in Common Worship and the Book of Common Prayer. From modern collects to prayers that have been learned by heart over generations, here are the words that today create a common identity among Anglican worshippers.
Texts include the Lord's Prayer, the Gloria, Sanctus, Prayers of Confession, the Creeds, the Magnificat, Nunc Dimittis, Benedictus, the Agnus Dei, the Grace, and many more. Each prayer is accompanied by a short commentary on its history and meaning, opening it up for those new to Anglican worship and those seeking a deeper understanding of familiar words.
Listen to Christopher Irvine discuss Words for Worship at its launch in July 2012
The editors are Gill Ambrose, Children's Advisor, Ely Diocese and author; Anders Bergquist, Vicar of St John's Wood; Paul Bradshaw, Professor of Liturgy and author; Christopher Irvine, Canon Librarian of Canterbury Cathedral and David Kennedy, Sub-dean of Durham Cathedral.
"This book offers material that has stood the test of time in Christian experience, and promises to enrich the discipleship of all who use these words." - Rowan Williams
