Book of Common Worship

Westminster John Knox Press, 1993.

This repository of classic and new prayer texts and orders of worship covers Sunday worship, various services of the Christian year, daily prayer, marriages, and funeral services. Similar to recently published prayer books in the Episcopal, Methodist, Roman Catholic, and Disciples of Christ traditions, this book is accessible to worship leaders in a variety of traditions—including free-church, evangelical congregations, whose leaders can adapt these texts for local use.
