Item Description...
Overview
Lutherans, Methodists, Presbyterians, and Episcopalians, paralleling Roman Catholics, have all recently made attempts at reforming and updating their respective calendars to reflect their present understanding of saints and their celebrations. Going one step further, renowned liturgical theologian Philip Pfatteicher here seeks to provide a common calendar. The New Book of Festivals and Commemorations picks up on renewed interest in the saints and other heroic figures of faith: apostles and martyrs, historical figures including artists, musicians, and scientists, and such modern men and women as Dag Hammarskjold. Including Festivals, Lesser Festivals, Commemorations, and optional memorials, each entry comprises a brief biography and bibliography, a related reading, a hymn suggestion, and a prayer.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Very Good guide to Protestant subjects in the Church Year  Apr 1, 2010
There are two things about which you must be clear of with this book. The first is that it's heritage is thoroughly Lutheran, so you will find many references to Protestant figures wuch as the Wesley brothers, Philipp Melanchthon,William Tyndale, and Count Zinzendorf, as well as the 'biggies', Luther and Calvin. The second is that contrary to the subtitle, this book does not contain an exhaustive list of 'Saints' recognized by the Catholics. For that, I suggest you go to David Farmer's 'Oxford Dictionary of Saints'.

Otherwise, as someone who writes regularly on the Christian year and on Christian subjects, this book has found a place of honor, within easy arms reach of my keyboard, as I refer to it every week. I suspect the book is even more useful to those who have responsibilities for weekly messages, as this volume gives a wealth of information about most of its figures, many of which neither the average Lutheran, Anglican, Methodist, or even Catholic has ever heard of, but should.

For the short run, there is a brief biography for most figures, about what you may find in an entry in the Wikipedia (except for the really important figures). But even better, there are quotes from books either by or about each figure.

For the long haul, there are bibliographical references, with at least two or three volumes cited for biographies or, for thinkers such as Kierkegaard, references on his work. There are Propers for the service and even suggestions for hymns, readings, and prayers appropriate to the subject. Almost all hymns appear in either the Lutheran Book of Worship or Evangelical Lutheran Worship.

I have seen other books on the Christian calendar, but this is by far the most useful for Protestants.
 
Excellant resource  Oct 30, 2009
In Lutheran Service Book, published by Concordia Pubilshing House, several years ago, there is a page of commemorations of saints. As a seminary student who has and interest in both liturgy and the church father, it seemed ideal to have worship services for these commemorations. However, there was no lectionary available for these commemorations. Pfatteicher's book provides a resource for that. However, this is not only a resource for LCMS church members. It is also a source for ELCA, Roman Catholic, Episcopalian, Reformed, and other various traditions. I contend it is an excellant resource for Pastors of the reformation to inform its members of the faithful Christians of the past.
 
Essential and Ecumenical Basic Building Blocks for worship  Jan 23, 2009
Excellent resource for the professor, busy pastor, or student doing research, any and all who plan and lead worship. Essential and ecumenical profiles of the saints and scriptural texts that complement each for feasts, festivals, and commemorations that will inspire and augment those whose job or vocation it is to inspire others in the gospel.
