|About the Book|
The only drawbacks to the book NOW are the OBE (overcome-by-events) references to same sex unions/weddings not being legally recognized- there are, of course, many nations that have done so.The book is not to be thought of as something like a fixed Breviary or Book of Hours.....Cranmer would not be pleased. She gives many styles and sources for prayers, readings, poems, blessings, etc. The variety can be confusing to someone as tightly wound as I am. She even includes such luminaries as the American Unitarian giant A. Powell Davies and the German theologian Jurgen Moltmann.Her novel idea of Parting ceremonies hit me like a thunderbolt. Brilliant.I had the pleasure of meeting the author when she was in DC for a conference related to her Professorial job. She was (and is still, I believe) the Regionary UK Bishop of the Liberal Catholic Church International and I was just a lowly Reader in the Minor Orders.Thank God for Christians like her. Thank you, +ES, for your book.
