From Library Journal
This book of liturgical texts for American Presbyterians revises and replaces The Worshipbook (1970) as well as Book of Common Worship (1906, 1932, 1946). It is a wonderful resource, providing a wide variety of options for services on the Lord's Day with word and optional sacrament (Holy Communion). It gives seasonal and special day liturgies; forms for baptism and reaffirmation of the baptismal covenant; a psalter (127 of the biblical psalms); special prayers for various occasions; and both a Sunday/festival and a daily lectionary as well as a liturgical calendar. It uses inclusive language not only for people but also for God, making this a book other Christian bodies will want to study carefully and emulate. Essential for seminary and large academic libraries but highly recommended for all libraries.
