Item Description...
Overview
Published during the 10th anniversary of the Book of Common Worship (1993), The Companion to the Book of Common Worship is a practical guide, answering questions such as "How do I use the Book of Common Worship to its fullest advantage?" and "How can the Book of Common Worship form a congregation into a community that glorifies and enjoys God?"

The book presents a variety of possibilities for enacting services in the Book of Common Worship and, thereby, stimulates the imagination of worship planners and leaders in accomplishing their various tasks. In particular, The Companion provides background information regarding the services, comments on the rubrics accompanying texts, and suggests some ways to use the texts and, occasionally, abridge or augment them for particular situations.

Sections in The Companion parallel those in the Book of Common Worship and include Service for the Lord's Day, Liturgical Year, Baptism, Daily Prayer, Marriage, and Music, among others. This book also contains a study guide to the Book of Common Worship.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Superb user's manual for the BCW  Jul 4, 2008
Students of (and pastors within) the Reformed tradition will find this a terrific resource for thinking about how to use the Book of Common Worship. As anyone who has ever planned a service knows all too well, it's never as simple as "turn to page 36 and start reading." Even the most "by the book" event requires a lot of decisions on the part of the pastor -- things that the congregation never thinks about, such as when to raise your hands and what gestures to make during Communion. That is, people may not think about them consciously, and yet, they'll know something is missing or incorrect when the pastor simply omits those gestures...or freestyles them. And the service will lose something important, if intangible. Other Christian denominations, from the "liturgical traditions" have many resources explaining what, how and why, and they are all wonderful in their own way. Unfortunately, these are only somewhat helpful for those of us in other branches of Christianity...there are some things we just do differently. And yet, aside from the "Directory for Worship" of the PCUSA and the RCA, for example, there isn't much guidance. That is why this book is so important. It is well-written, very practical, theologically grounded, and Reformed with a capital R. A great resource.
