what an excellent, well written book. Explains the liturgy so clearly and simply. Everyone in my opinion who is contemplating Confirmation should read this book. It answers so many questions my vicar did not or could not.It took me right to the heart of the Eucharist .

This book explores the Biblical origins of the words of the Eucharistic prayers available through common worship in the Church of England. It looks at the journey those prayers have gone though and their links to other Christian denominations where appropriate. This may sound a bit 'dry' but the book is accessible, especially to those who are familiar with the words, through hearing them week after week in church. I would recommend reading the chapters on the 8 variations in small 'bites', preferably with the whole text accessible. I found it very interesting, and was amused by the authors evident desire to re-write a few bits of liturgy themselves!
