I have known David for over 30 years, and throughout his love and passion for liturgy has been evident. He understands liturgy as a missional tool which speaks to people in various ways and at significant spiritual levels, not least in the Eucharist as it focuses on the presence of Christ. Being sensitive to contemporary liturgy and worship, David understands how this has been influenced by the Prayer Book and why it is important to understand its lasting impact and relevance in the Churchs prevailing culture and direction. As a theological student, I learnt much about liturgy from David and I am confident this book will make a valuable contribution to the readers understanding and experience of the Prayer Book, which is a rich inheritance. --The Bishop of Doncaster

I enjoyed this book which tells what might fairly be considered a complicated subject in an accessible way. It skips through the process leading to the 1549 Prayer Book and beyond to that of 1552 and its subsequent revisions. As someone who is already familiar with the subject through older and more detailed tomes, it held few surprises for me. I was surprised to learn about Martin Bucer's apparent approval of the 1549 book - I'd understood him to be one of its harshest critics. Also I was a little surprised by the idea that Cranmer's hand had been forced over the 1552 revision and that the direction of travel hadn't been altogether his idea. A good book overall and one which I am happy to recommend, although my attempts to contact the author have yet to meet with success.
