Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has, admittedly, a niche market, namely those whose job it is to organise liturgy in Anglican Churches, most particularly the Church of England.
So, nine times out of ten, this means priests.
Of these, of course, evangelicals will largely bypass the type of ceremonial described, so can ignore it, but this book could be read with profit by everyone else, from middle of the road all the way up the candle to super-spikes.

Anyway, if you've passed this entry level test, you'll find this a really useful guide to all the Church's services from the start of Lent through the rest of the year. The bulk of it is focussed on Holy Week and the section on the Easter Vigil stands out for its clarity, but it also covers much more widely: for example, there is a little chapter for Agricultural services: and typically, they even suggest with confidence when the president should have his/her hands in 'orans' position during the blessing of seed on Plough Sunday!

Gordon-Taylor and Jones have partnered up before and they have kept their usual style here: direct instruction, clear delineation of options, and reasons given for their preferences. This makes them incredibly helpful as a guide, as even if you disagree with them, you can see why. For example, on p76, they specify exactly whose candles get lit from the Paschal Candle at which moment during the three "The light of Christ" proclamations at the beginning of the Easter Vigil: at the first, the President's, at the second, the other clergy and servers, and at the third, everybody else.
