Gifts of God for the People of God: Exploring Worship in the Episcopal Church

Are you looking for a book to study for your Lenten program or inquirers’ class this year?

Gifts of God for the People of God would make a fine addition for your program or class. This short book, by the Rev. Furman Buchanan and published by Forward Movement invites the reader to learn about the “what’s” and “why’s” of The Holy Eucharist, Rite 2. Each chapter examines a section of the liturgy in a way that is accessible to all. The Rev. Buchanan often includes stories to illustrate the topic at hand and each chapter concludes with two sets of questions for reflection: “Reflecting on Our Story with God” encourages the reader to think back on liturgies in which he/she has participated; and “Celebrating Our Story with God” invites the reader to go deeper using the Holy Eucharist as a way of life. Relevant portions of the Book of Common Prayer are included in each chapter for reference.

We recommend this book for all seeking a deeper knowledge of our principal liturgy.
