Book Description

12 Sep 2005
The services and resources in The Iona Abbey Worship Book reflect the Iona Community's commitment to the belief that worship is all that we are and all that we do, both inside and outside the church, with no division into the sacred and the secular . They draw on many traditions, including the Celtic, and aim to help us to be fully present to God, who is fully present to us in our neighbour, in the political and social activity of the world around us, and in the very centre and soul of our being. Each year, thousands of visitors make their way to Iona and many are changed by their time on this small Hebridean island which has been a powerful spiritual centre over the centuries. The Iona Community does not believe that we are brought to Iona to be changed into religious people, but rather to be made more fully human. Our common life including our services is directed to that end. This new edition of The Iona Abbey Worship Book (previously The Iona Community Worship Book) has been extensively revised and rearranged and includes much new material developed over the past two years by the resident group on Iona. Previous editions of the Worship Book have been used with enthusiasm by groups and congregations all over the UK and in other parts of the world. It is hoped that this new edition will provide similar inspiration

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful resource! 31 May 2013
Verified Purchase
This book is a great resource for liturgy in many settings - it presents the old words in new, insightful and helpful ways as well as opening new vistas to encourage worship that fits the Iona criteria of all that we are and do ..... I recommend it to anyone who is trying to plan imaginative new liturgies in their church or group.

For anyone looking to experience Celtic prayer, this resource is limited. I found the material from the Northumbria community much more helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Memories of my time at the abbey 25 May 2013
By mrb2563 - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Anyone with a curiosity in the mystical isle of Iona will probably cherish the Abbey Worship Book. After my trip in 2010, I have slowly found my way back to the prayers that were introduced there. St. Columba may have found Iona 1450 years ago, but this worship book is timeless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent worship planning resource 27 Dec 2012
By Catherine D. Belles - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The Ioana Abby worship materials are excellent and useful in a number of situations and within most denominations. I like the different moods expressed, grief, mourning, lament as well as the usual praise and joy images make these prayers and responsive readings applicable for regular and special services. I also appreciate that these pieces reflect the commitment of the Iona Community to worship God throughout the day in all circumstances.

Sometimes you need a more formal ritual atmosphere for your group setting. This could be what you need. While you're at it Google the Iona Community....very interesting.
