Australian Anglicans Worship: performing APBA explores the heritage, background, contents and creative use of A Prayer Book for Australia (APBA).
Reflection on the theological and liturgical principles that surround each service in APBA is blended with ideas for creative worship — and the author is not afraid to take poor theology and unhelpful practice to task.
In writing this book, the Revd Dr Charles Sherlock AM has drawn on his close involvement with the preparation of APBA, along with his five decades of teaching and enthusiasm for lively liturgy.
Sensitive to the Anglican heritage and its current diversity, Australian Anglicans Worship: performing APBA is a unique resource for Australian Anglicans. Scholarly, yet eminently readable, it supports all who prepare, lead and participate in creative Christian worship that is faithful to what really matters.
