Flaw: there is neither Table of Contents nor Index.
A major issue is that the procedures and practices are entirely in line with the Roman church, not the Episcopal church - this despite being published by Morehouse, an official Episcopal publishing house. The nuances of wording in the prayers and liturgies are clearly Roman, not Episcopal. See the end of the Lord's Prayer, check the wording of the Nicene Creed. Further, in the Episcopal Church the term "server" is commonly used to mean "chalice server" or Lay Eucharistic Minister, adding to the confusion for Episcopalians. While the description of the duties of an acolyte in preparing the elements is good, there is no material at all about acting as chalice bearer at the Eucharist. Nor is there anything about a lay subdeacon, discontinued by the Romans but still used by many Episcopalians. It becomes plain after just a little reading that the content orientation is entirely toward the Roman church.
Thus, while helpful, the book is clearly a lot less than the COMPLETE server.
