This is the perfect book to explain the liturgy to new members, youth, and even long-time Lutherans. First printed over a century ago, this Lutheran liturgical handbook uses questions and answers to explain the meaning of the Communion, Matins, and Vespers. (Liturgical texts are equivalent to those of The Lutheran Hymnal 1941.) In addition, hymnody, liturgical theology, and history are addressed succinctly. For more information, we invite you to read this more detailed description and also this thorough review.


Read the Introduction to this book, which consists of 23 questions and answers about the Divine Service and the liturgy.
