Format: Hardcover
Five stars for the content - using the Revised Common Lectionary, there is ample material here for every Sunday (plus Epiphany, Ash Wednesday, Holy Thursday and Good Friday, and Ascension). The material is uniformly well thought-out, makes good use of language, and directly references the lessons of the day.

Every entry includes Call to Worship, Call to Confession, Prayer of Confession, Declaration of Forgiveness, Prayer of the Day, Prayer for Illumination, Prayer of Intercession, Invitation to the Offering, Prayer of Dedication, Charge, and Benediction. There are nine Great Prayers of Thanksgiving in the appendix, and they are excellent.

A real bonus is that each entry provides Questions for Reflection, and Household Prayers for morning and evening - superb take-home resources for worshipers.

Now for the bad news: the document protection on the CD is truly odious. Westminster/John Knox assumes that you are a criminal, and treats you as such. The CD includes two password-protected files, one in Word (.doc) format, and one in PDF. You must enter this password every single time you open the document - annoying (but very easy to fix), but the real odium is GETTING the password. You must go to a website, and you are required to give WJK your full name, address, phone number, and email. If you're unwilling to provide all that, too bad - "No password for you!" Further, for unknown and unpublished reasons, the website informed me that my email is "invalid," and I had to contact the publisher directly. And, finally, there's no privacy policy published - will I get ad-bombed by WJK? Will they give my information to their "partners"? No way to know.

If you're buying this book, you're a criminal, right? No, you're a pastor or a worship planner.

Format: Hardcover
The Feasting on the Word Worship Companion has recently released their newest edition of worship readings for the liturgical, lectionary driven church. As usual, it is a great resource for mainline churches seeking classy, well-written, theologically sound litanies and responsive readings.

This volume in this fine series covers Advent to Pentecost in Year A. It includes the following resources for each week:
•Listing of lectionary texts
•Call to Worship
•Prayers and readings for the confession/assurance cycle
•Prayer of Day
•Prayer for Illumination
•Prayers of Intercession
•Prayers and readings for the offering
•Charge
•Blessing
•Questions for reflections on the texts
•Household prayers for the morning and the evening

Each Sunday is thoroughly resourced. The readings are smart and thoughtful without being flowery or overly wordy. The wording has theological depth without being over people's head. My only complaint is that this resource does not include an invocation for each Sunday.

In addition to the weekly resources there are several other resources. They are:
•Two baptismal liturgies
•A thorough index of Scriptures used
•Great Thanksgiving services with the following themes
◦General use
◦Advent
◦Christmas
◦Epiphany
◦Lent
◦Holy Thursday
◦Easter
◦Pentecost

The book is also on a CD-ROM that is attached with the book. This makes it helpful when cutting and pasting these resources into a PowerPoint or a church bulletin.

I love this series of resources. I have the devotionals for all three years. I also have all of the worship companion resources as well. In addition to this, I have some of the commentaries they offer for preaching. Although some of the writing comes from a more liberal background than my own, it is all solid stuff worth considering for use in worship and personal study of the Word of God.

Wonderful resource for ministers who follow the lectionary. Prayers, liturgy that aligns with the weekly lectionary texts. I would highly recommend for people who want thoughtful creative liturgy.

The prayers and liturgy are great as a starting point for creating your own rites of worship. I rarely use resources of this nature verbatim but find these useful as thought starters and help me focus. Highly recommended - Having the companion CD or versions being released for Kindle/iPad makes editing for electronic formats easier. Again, I need the edit ability so I can re-write to my needs and then use in worship publications or projecting via PowerPoint or other worship applications.

While I greatly admire the liturgies(5 stars), their thoughtfulness, and their relationship to scriptures, and I am hugely disappointed that there is a limit on the downloads-(3 stars) which makes worship planning more arduous. I do not plan any more subscriptions until this is corrected.

The have really enjoyed the Feasting on the Word series, and this was such a wonderful added bonus.
I don't use it every Sunday, but it just helps with a whole theme of a service, I highly recommend.

As others have stated, this is a great resource for planning worship liturgies throughout the church year. Not much more to add in that respect.
My low star rating is due the Kindle format. I purchased this format so that I could use this resource for our worship services. With the Kindle Windows application (Not the Windows 8 app) I can copy and paste. However, the publisher (Westminster John Knox Press) has imposed a limit to the number of times one can copy and paste from the Kindle document. Which leaves me wondering why they would offer it in this format and impose such a limitation. The point of having an electronic version is to be able to transfer the liturgies from the book into our worship documents. My understanding is that the hardcover version has a CD-ROM from which this can be done without limitation. I would hope the publisher would extend the same ability to those who purchased the Kindle version.
