In this final volume of his comprehensive study of the services of the Book of Common Prayer, Byron Stuhlman looks at how the community of the faithful marks the crucial times in the life of the individual, from the act of Christian initiation to the hour of death--and in the life of the community itself, from the rites of ordination to the hallowing if liturgical spacer. All of these events are 'occasions of grace,' times of personal and corporate transformation through an encounter with the crucified and risen Christ. In Eucharistic Celebration 1789-1979 Dr. Stuhlman examined the service of Holy Communion as the Episcopal Church has known it through two centuries. In Redeeming the Time, he addressed the temporal structure and cycles of worship as they are set forth in the Book of Common Prayer. This book completes the trilogy.
