To complement the popular 'how to do it' publications, which give guidance on the move to Common Worship, a serious and scholarly commentary on the whole range of Common Worship texts is offered here. There is an historical survey of the origins and development of each rite from New Testament times, through the Middle Ages, the Reformation, and up to the present day. This is followed by a detailed commentary on the rite as a whole, and on each part of it, including a comparison with the ASB and other contemporary liturgies, and a short list of books for further reading.
