Rev Dr A Stewart Todd

Stewart Todd regrets the total abandonment of traditional prayer language, citing the change from “thou” to “you” and the translation into modern speech of long-accepted forms and structures. There are suggestions for models of contemporary bidding prayers. Despite its scant reference to the work of the Holy Spirit, he finds it overall a worthy work of revision.

Rev Peter D Thomson

Peter Thomson notes the use of inclusive language throughout the book. He questions the use of REB as the only Bible version, also the changes in forms of liturgical texts and the three year lectionary rather than four. He is appreciative of the comprehensive alternative services, ordinances and prayers.

Rev Tom A Davidson Kelly

Tom Davidson Kelly laments the omission of the traditional words “Holy things to holy people”, with the paradox of holiness/unworthiness in receiving the blessed sacrament. Sinners are quickened in their desire for sanctification, being made holy through Christ.
