W 161 Services for Wholeness and Healing: The Common Worship Orders

Adding to the series of commentaries on the new services, this booklet begins with a substantial engagement with the theological and biblical questions surrounding healing (missing from some recent treatments of the subject). It then looks at the actual provision in the new services, and aspects of pastoral practice that result. It concludes by placing the services within the context of recent liturgical discussion.

It will be essential reading for anyone wanting to use the new services to best effect.
