Editorial Reviews

Review

This is a useful reference book. More descriptive than prescriptive, it combines sound liturgical principles with encouragement for readers to take account of their particular situation in all liturgical planning. (Ruth A. Meyers Seabury-Western Theological Seminary)

In this ceremonial guide Mitchell helps the reader to construct occasional and pastoral offices, expands the rubrics of the Book of Common Prayer, and describes the use of material from the Book of Occasional Services. Apart from the more obviously pastoral liturgies, he covers the celebration of the Daily Office, the sanctification of the year, and Episcopal services. The model assumed for these prescriptions is a mid-sized and middle-church Episcopal parish. . . . A member of the Episcopal clergy or a lay liturgical minister will thus find a reliable and sensible guide to the planning of worship. . . (Mauricio Wilson General Theological Seminary)

As a priest-scholar with a lifetime of deep involvement in liturgical matters, Mitchell brings a breadth of historic, theological, and practical wisdom to all he writes. . . .“This brief, comprehensive, and well-written guide should be read and carefully applied by all who plan and lead worship, especially members of worship committtees, seminarians, and clergy. Through study and attentive use of the guide, a worshipping community can gain an added measure of spiritual depth and richness in its liturgical life. (Raymond F. Glover, Professor of Music Virginia Theological Seminary)

By Fr. Robert F. Lyons on December 23, 2004
Format: Paperback
Leonel L. Mitchell took on a monumental task, that of finishing the three volume set of ceremonial manuals planned by Howard Galley to accompany the 1979 Book of Common Prayer.

While Mitchell is no Galley, he provides wonderful ceremonial and liturgical tips for those who are charged with conducting or assisting at the condcut of Divine Worship. In this volume, Mitchell covers the services not regularlly used in the life of a congregation (i.e., not used every week). Confirmation, Ordination, Confession, Reception of Converts, even the Daily Office are given the treatment in this book, and the material provided will give liturgists, clergy, and laity alike much food for thought.

Though I am not an Episcopalian, this volume, together with Galley's "The Ceremonies of the Eucharist" and Mitchell's "Lent, Holy Week, Easter, & the Great Fifty Days" are indespensible parts of my liturgical library. I recommend them to you without reservation.

Leonel "Lee", as he was known by students at Seabury-Western seminary, was an expert liturgist. He had also taught at the University of Notre Dame. His book provides simple, clear guidelines for liturgical practices in both Episcopal and Roman Catholic denominations.
