The SCM Studyguide: Liturgy, 2nd Edition is an introduction to liturgy that considers the basic 'buliding blocks' needed to grasp the subject area. It outlines the essential shape and content of Christian worship and explores a range of liturgical dynamics of which both students of liturgy and leaders of liturgy need to be aware. This 2nd edition of the popular Studyguide is fully revised, updated and expanded. The book takes account of new developments in scholarship, engages with new contexts for liturgical celebration (notably, fresh expressions as part of a mixed economy of church), encompasses recent revisions in liturgy and seeks to broaden the engagement beyond the British context to consider the wider global context.

Oxford, Bodleian Library, Bodley 579, the so-called 'Leofric Missal', is for the most part not really a missal, but a late-ninth or early-tenth-century combined sacramentary, pontifical and ritual with cues for the sung parts of various masses by the original, possibly French or Lotharingian, scribe. Subsequently, over the course of a hundred and thirty or so years, the sacramentary-pontifical-ritual was considerably augmented, first most probably for the successors of Plegmund, archbishop of Canterbury (890-923), the man for whom it was probably originally compiled, then later at Exeter for Bishop Leofric (1050-72).
The abbey of Fecamp, reformed in the early years of the eleventh century by William of Volpiano, abbot of St-Benigne at Dijon, was a key institution in the development of Norman monasticism in the middle ages. As one of the most energetic monastic reformers of his time, William was noted for the attention he paid to the liturgy of the many abbeys he superintended, and his liturgical cursus was influential in English and continental monastic houses. The Fecamp Ordinal, edited here from a manuscript of the early thirteenth century, but transmitting the liturgy observed in the abbey some two centuries earlier, is the first complete source of William's liturgical work to be printed. It is expanded by readings from complementary Fecamp service books, creating a text which gives a particularly detailed view of medieval monastic liturgy. The first volume contains the Temporale; this volume contains the remainder of the Ordinal (Sanctorale, Commune Sanctorum and Miscellanea), together with comprehensive indexes. DAVID CHADD teaches in the School of Music at the University of East Anglia.

- Saint Michael the Archangel, who is the leader of the angelic hosts against the forces of evil.
- Saint Gabriel the Archangel, who brought the news of the Annunciation to Mary of Nazareth.
- Saint Raphael the Archangel, who accompanied young Tobias on his trip in the Book of Tobit.
- Our Guardian Angel, who protects each of us during our entire lifetime from birth to death.

Jim Cotter has a rare gift with words that enables him to write prayers that engage the heart and imagination as well as the mind. Here the ancient and beautiful language of night prayer is infused with fresh and striking imagery about God. Simple prayers, Psalm paraphrases and short readings for reflection open us to the mystery of God - a mystery to which we are more open at night, or when we are facing our own dark places. At night we face many things that are kept at bay by the day's distractions. Praying the Dark Hours is a combination of two bestselling titles: Prayer at Night and Waymarks. This new edition offers structured prayer for each night of the week, based on the traditional pattern of Compline, woven together with scriptures and a short reflective reading for each day of the year and further selections for the Christian seasons.
A user-friendly book for people of all ages who are being confirmed, or have been confirmed - giving prayers for each day, Holy Communion, advice for prayer, Bible study and self-examination, information about the church's year, and so on. It acts as both a prayer book and a reminder of the essentials of Christian teaching. This would make an ideal gift.
As essential to the canon as the Bible and the plays of Shakespeare, The Book of Common Prayer has been in daily use for centuries. Originally produced for the Church of England in the sixteenth century by Thomas Cranmer, who was burned at the stake upon the accession to the throne of the ardently Catholic Queen Mary, it contains the entire liturgy as first presented in English-as well as some of the oldest phrases to be used by modern English speakers. H ere are daily prayers, scripture readings, psalm recitals, and the services marking such religious milestones as baptism, confirmation, and marriage, all from the 1662 edition, whose influence can be seen in the work of some of the greatest writers in English literature, from Donne and Swift to Austen and the Brontes. This beautiful deluxe edition includes a new introduction by The New Yorker's book critic James Wood, discussing how The Book of Common Prayer has influenced the English language and literature. Its small trim size allows for easy portability as a daily devotional.
Includes hymnody from medieval plain chant to the early twentieth-century classics. This work includes hymns that are grouped according to theme and contains material suitable for any festival or occasion in the life of a church.
This interdisciplinary study investigates the divine personas in the so-called magical hymns of the Greek magical papyri which, in a corpus usually seen as a significant expression of religious syncretism with strong Egyptian influence, were long considered to be the 'most authentically Greek' contribution. Fifteen hymns receive a line-by-line commentary focusing on religious concepts, ritual practice, language and style. The overarching aim is to categorise the nature of divinity according to its Greek or Egyptian elements, examining earlier Greek and Egyptian sources and religious-magical traditions in order to find textual or conceptual parallels. Are the gods of the magical hymns Greek or Egyptian in nature? Did the magical hymns originate in a Greek or Egyptian cultural background? The book tries to answer these questions and to shed light on the religious plurality and/or fusion of the two cultures in the treatment of divinity in the Greek magical papyri.

This second edition has been updated to include the full texts of the funeral psalms, the traditional language marriage service and the traditional language funeral service (the Alternative Services).

'For the prayers of the church to be enriched, it demands a praying people,' writes David Adam. And in this book he offers intercessions, blessings and forms for the peace covering each Sunday and major festival of the Church's year, so that worshippers can prepare for each service. The prayers employ the Celtic style found in David Adam's many previous books, and can be used as a complement to the readings and collects for Year B of the Revised Common Lectionary. This book accompanies Clouds and Glory (Year A) and Glimpses of Glory (Year C). Such is the quality of these prayers that they will be as helpful for those who do not use a regular lectionary as for those who do. 'We need to see traces of glory in our everyday lives,' writes the author, 'and this is very possible if we are willing to spend time with God.'
`Prayer is God's gift to us, a banquet of good things to feed our inner life, as we respond to the invitation to his feast of peace, forgiveness, challenge and love.' If our lives are an open book to God, prayer is the dialogue we share with him over its pages. The Book of a Thousand Prayers is a collection of wise and honest prayers to God about his concerns and ours: who he is to us and who we are to him, and how we experience life, death, relationships, the church and the world. Ideal for private prayer and public worship, and containing practical advice on how to pray, this book offers a spiritual feast that will nourish you for the rest of your life. `A moving and inspiring medley of prayers - an invaluable aid for individuals, home groups, and those people who lead worship.' Joyce Huggett

With this landmark book we learn to wield the sword of the Spirit, praying God's Word to break free from anything that has a hold on us until the joy and authority of Christ rules in our lives.
These are heartfelt and very realistic prayers about college life. Kerry Weber beautifully expresses all the familiar emotions, all the highs and lows, all the fears and dreams that every college student experiences.

She makes a compelling case for staying close to God from the first unfamiliar days on campus to the moment of graduation. This is a wonder gift for any young person heading off to college. It offers reassurance and comfort and encourages them to build a vibrant life of faith and prayer.
