18 of 18 people found the following review helpful By Monty Rainey VINE VOICE on June 27, 2006
Format: Hardcover
This expanded and updated MINISTER'S SERVICE MANUEL by Samuel Hutton is a compact and valuable resource for ministers. It contains 250 pages packed with information that you will refer to again and again. It contains six chapters covering marriages, illness and funerals, special occasions, church procedures, leading public worship and record keeping.

Some may find the content rather basic, but the content follows protocol and can be used as a basis for expansion and customizing. Particularly useful is inclusion of the proper prayers and music for each occasion. I find this particularly useful in performing duties that are not a part of my usual ministry.

There are many books of this sort available, and many are more detailed than this one, but I find this compact guide very helpful, easy to navigate and often just what I need to point me in the right direction.

For any practicing minister, its a very helpful essential. I am a very non-traditional minister, but I use the services in here as a base structure to create new ones, or use the traditional stand bys. Its a good reference. ^^

It gives you a lot of styles or layouts for Christian ceremonies. Great examples and suggestions for appropriate bible passages for different occasions. Also poetry examples. It helped me immensely with a memorial service that I officiated over.

This was what I was suggested to get and now I know why. A firm foundation or a springboard for the happy officiating at several types of ceremonies.
