The Liturgy section of the Passage Guide is, from my perspective, a bit disorganized and not terribly useful - it feels thrown together without any understanding of the eventual content. [Yes, historically I share part of the blame for this]. Part of the problem is that many people think of it as not applying to them. So I've tried to find the resources that belong in the bottom section assuming that it is intended to contain "service books". This is the list I came up with. Please note the variety of denominations:

  • ancient
  • Anglican/Episcopal
  • Baptist
  • Byzantine (Eastern Orthodox, Eastern rite Catholic)
  • Catholic (Western)
  • Judaism
  • King's Chapel
  • Lutheran
  • Mennonite (Anabaptist)
  • Messianic Jews
  • Methodist/Wesleyan
  • Moravian
  • Oriental Orthodox
  • Presbyterian

Please review and suggest corrections/additions for any section you are interested in. If you are uninterested in the subject, please glance through the list so you understand how broadly the section is applicable in Logos.

The following two books by Robert I. Vasholz have been assigned different datatypes - systematic theology (sic!) and monograph - but I would say these are liturgical resources:

Benedictions

Kurtz, Benjamin. Lutheran Prayer Book: For the Use of Families and Individuals. Revised and Enlarged Edition. Baltimore: T. Newton Kurtz, 1860.

Not a service book, but in general we Lutherans are quite poorly served for Service Books in Logos. In my fifty odd years as a Lutheran, I have used the following in corporate worship:

Service Book and Hymnal, 1958, Augsburg

Lutheran Book of Worship, 1978, Augsburg/Fortress and Concordia

The Lutheran Hymnal, 1941, Concordia

Lutheran Worship, 1982, Concordia

Hymnal Supplement 1991, 1991, GIA - but as the name suggests, is a Supplement that needs another resource for the "Propers"

With One Voice, 1995, Augsburg/Fortress - again, a supplement that needs another resource.

Evangelical Lutheran Worship, 2006, Augsburg/Fortress

Lutheran Service Book, 2006, Concordia

None of these are in Logos. The closest we have is the book from the United Synod South, which is the 1888 Common Service which was shared by almost all Lutherans in the USA until the SBH started to expand upon it, based on the 20th century liturgical movement... So just about every "Service Book" in Logos is only of antiquarian interest, unless you are one of the very few congregations that still uses the 1888 Common Service - which admittedly I did for a few years about 20 years ago when my congregation used "TLH".

Logos is good at offering Lutheran Lectionaries. But they have not been able to work with the Lutheran Publishers to offer Service Books that most Lutherans in this country would recognize.

I know very little on this but the topic fascinates me and I look at these from time to time. 

I wish they had the Lutheran book of worship- Minneapolis : Augsburg Pub. House ; Philadelphia : Board of Publication, Lutheran Church in America

Is there a good resource that you know of that explains how these readings came to be?

I know no resource that exactly does this, but Phil Pfatteicher wrote a Commentary on the LBW where he shows how its liturgy fits in its historical context. It doesn't have committee votes or anything like that, but does show how it compares with historical Lutheran liturgies as well as the 1979 Book of Common Prayer, and the post Vatican 2 liturgy.

I had noticed. Methodists and Presbyterians are also in the slim offerings category. I have decided to really start pushing on service books, lectionaries, and sanctoral cycles but starting this time by making it very clear it is not just a Verbum problem. I suspect it will take a couple of years to make a difference but ...

MJ,

Commenting from the Reformed/Presbyterian camp, thank you for noticing we're under-represented and especially for developing a push to address this whole lack.

Apropos of not much, I was glad to see Ken McGuire mention Phil Pfatteicher's book. I don't know the book, but I did know Phil slightly when we were undergraduates 60+ years ago.

I don’t know as much about each category as I would like to. I was raised in the church of Christ (Stone/Campbell). There may be overlap with some of the categories listed but to me seems distinctive in multiple ways including liturgy. I don’t have specific resources to recommend but would imagine something has been addressed by Everett Ferguson, Thomas Warren or someone else in that vein.

I agree that Methodist and Presbyterian offerings are slim.  But I notice that John Knox is listed under the Methodists and Wesleyan category.

  • Knox, John. The Liturgy of John Knox: Received by the Church of Scotland in 1564. Glasgow; London: Glasgow University Press; Hamilton, Adams & Co.; Thomas D. Morison, 1886.

I bet John Knox is surprised by that, being the founder of the Scottish Presbyterians.  But we Methodists are proud to welcome him into our camp.

That's OK...as a reformed Baptist, I'm always happy to welcome the Wesleys into my camp, too. Big Smile

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.
