ISBN-13: 9780898692389



This latest offering of Byron Stuhlman is the third in his trilogy on the Prayer Book. It is also the conclusion of his study of the liturgy of the church begun in his previous book, Redeeming the Time. This book deals with the pastoral offices and episcopal services in the Book of Common Prayer using the method known as "comparative liturgy." Stuhlman's purpose is to explore at a deeper level the theological connections between these services and the faith which they articulate, rendering them effective in shaping lives according to the gospel.

Byron D. Stuhlman is a retired Episcopal priest who served parishes in Connecticut and Central New York. A graduate of Yale University (BA), General Theological Seminary (STB), and Duke University (PhD), he taught in the Department of Religion at Hamilton College and as an adjunct professor of liturgics at General Seminary and has written five books on the Book of Common Prayer.
