Worship without Dumbing-Down: Knowing God through Liturgy, by Peter Toon, reviewed in The Church Times by Peter McGeary. 'Words and actions matter. They express what we believe — or, at least, they should... [Toon makes] a useful attempt to reconnect liturgy and doctrine in a particular context. And that is something we should be doing, whether we use the Book of Common Prayer or not.'
A Sociological History of Christian Worship, by Martin D. Stringer, reviewed in The Church Times by Christopher Irvine. Stringer saves the reader from sociological jargon, 'define[s] his terms, and at every turn to explain the direction and flow of the argument... Due consideration is given to the origins of Christian worship; but we are shown how worship diversifies as it develops, influencing — and itself being coloured by — the social context in which it is set.'

The Mind of Christ Jesus in the Church of the Living God, by Charles Henry Brent (1908). Brent (1862-1929) was the Canadian-born American Episcopalian first Bishop of the Philippines. 'I have two objects in mind in writing this Charge. First to make clear to my present and to my prospective fellow-missionaries the principles that actuate my administrations. Secondly that donors to this Missionary District may labour under no misconception as to the character of the work which their gifts support.'
