A Good Friend's First Book

Brett Provance--who is an old friend and one of the first elders at Christ Reformed Church--has written his first book.

I first met Brett when I owned a Christian bookstore and he was a (young) salesman for a number of Christian publishers.  He's now a scholar and still a gentleman.

Here's the publisher's blurb:

About the Book

Today there is a rising tide of interest in worship and a renewed study of the church's heritage of liturgy. But as students quickly learn, there are numerous terms, texts and traditions for which regular dictionaries and even theological dictionaries are no help. The Pocket Dictionary of Liturgy and Worship is a quick-reference guide for students engaged in readings and lectures as well as for leaders of worship and liturgy who want to renew, check or expand their knowledge.

The range of topics includes

  • practices, such as altar call and benediction
  • rites, such as baptism and Eucharist
  • symbols, such as incense and dove
  • texts, such as Apostolic Constitutions and Book of Common Prayer
  • gestures, such as kneeling and sign of the cross
  • vestments, such as alb and robe
  • musical terms, such as a cappella and Agnus Dei
  • observances, such as All Saints' Day and Easter
  • architectural features, such as apse and sacristy

Congrats Brett!
