Book Description

Significantly revised, with illustrations added, in August 2014: The Meaning and Symbols of Holy Eucharist (approximately 180 pages) is an introduction to worship in the Anglican tradition as observed in the American Church. The centerpiece of the book is an Instructed Eucharist, based on Rite Two, Eucharistic Prayer A from the 1979 Edition of the American Book of Common Prayer.

From the Preface: "Much of my ministry has been spent on mentoring and preparing new-comers, confirmands, lay ministers, and recently ordained clergy for worship and ministry. It is my prayer that this brief book will provide the necessary “big picture” that we all need to make sense of this form of worship, we call Liturgy. These resources may be particularly useful for First Communion, Confirmation and Licensed Lay Ministry training. I have also been mindful of the “outsider” like myself, who came from a non-liturgical tradition and would have appreciated a primer to help me on my way as I fell in love with the Liturgy, even though much of it was an enigma. For those of us in that situation, the heart understood the Liturgy long before the mind did. The following essays and instructions are intended to help your mind catch up with your heart. However, there is not a wall of separation between heart and mind; they are in constant interaction with one another. Therefore, I have also intentionally framed the following instructions within an attitude of devotion, that we may draw nearer to Jesus with all our heart, soul, mind and strength."

The Meaning and Symbols of Holy Eucharist includes descriptions of the Seasons of the Church Year; instructions on How to Receive Holy Communion; common symbols (illustrated); private prayers and devotions for preparation, and those offered by the priest during the Celebration; guidelines for leading Morning Prayer; Frequently Asked Questions, and a glossary of terms.

The Table of Contents is hyperlinked to each section of the book.

The book was significantly revised and re-published on August 6, 2014. The book is also scheduled to be released in paperback in August 2014.

I enjoyed Fr. Van's Kindle book and would recommend for those being instructed as Anglican Christians. As a priest, I also found it to be instructive and would recommend it for those seeking holy orders. It is a reminder that Anglicans as a reformation church, draw on the history of the early church and remain connected to it. Finally, it is a fresh reminder of our connection to and participation in Christ's body His Church universal.
