"Robert Vasholz has collected many of the Bible's benedictions and constructed other scripture-enriched blessings for the use of ministers who lead worship. Indeed all Christians will be "blessed" by reading and praying these wonderful words from God." (David Calhoun ~ Professor of Church History, Covenant Theological Seminary, St. Louis, Missouri)
"..an attractive resource, which can enlarge the minister's repertoire and be slipped conveniently into his pocket" (Rt Rev Dr J Barry Schucksmith Royal Navy (Rtd))

My former Hebrew Professor, Dr. Robert Vasholz, put together 109 different benedictions that draw from Scriptural promises to be used in corporate worship. I think the real upshot to some of the benedictions are the way he combined portions of Old Testament scriptures with New Testament scriptures and they work well together in such a way that you are reminded of God's love for his people throughout the ages.
Here is an example of one particular benediction:
May the Lord of Hosts be with you
So that you will become greater and greater still,
Until you recieve that crown of life
Which the Lord has prepared for those that love Him.
2 Sam 5:10 & James 1:12 (pp 48)
He also combines OT with OT, single verses that are not often used as benedictions and aditionally Scripture combined with great lyrics of hymns and poems from Christian history. The language is such that it provides a depth and richness to understanding and recieving God's blessing at the close of corporate worship. And it certainly gives pastors a greater breadth of material than the standard Aaronic Benediction and the three or four which are typically used from the New Testament. Instead of a congregation hearing the same benedictions month by month until they run the risk of being "vain" in their repetition; the pastor has a resource for over two years without a repeat!
