"In worship, our ideologies stand exposed, and nowhere is this clearer than in the assumptions expressed in our language. Increasingly, the convention by which God has been addressed in terms that are exclusively male has caused discomfort among worshippers; but the problem of finding new words is not simple. ... Much more potentially creative is the writing of new texts in vigorous language, which also respects and inhabits ancient worship with forms, evocative biblical imagery, and familiar cadences and rhythms". -- Preface, p. vii.

"This edition of the revised forms of services most frequently used in the Episcopal Church has been put together with the purpose of providing, at as low a cost as possible, all that the people in the pews would normally need for the public recitation of the Daily Office and the celebration of Holy Communion, including the complete Psalter. Hence it is described as a 'pew edition'. It is not the draft of a revised Book of Common Prayer; nor is it a complete collection of all the revised materials needed for the conduct of regular public worship on Sundays, other Holy Days , or weekdays. The revised services are reproduced as authorized by the General Convention of 1973, in both the more familiar 'traditional' style and the more contemporary speech of today" (p. vii). .... The purpose of this pew edition is to facilitate the kind of regular, orderly, and prayerful use of the most frequently used services, which should make it possible for all congregations that wish to take a responsible part in the process of Prayer Book revision, to do so; or at the very least, to become acquainted, through use, with what is likely to be proposed" (p. xiii). -- Preface.

"Poppa T [i.e. Timothy Holder] Editor-in-Chief" -- Afterword, p. 153.
"The Hip Hop Prayer Book originated out of a concern for evangelism at Trinity Episcopal Church in the South Bronx. .... Although the South Bronx is beginning to get back on its economic feet, the neighbourhood is still among the poorest in the city. Children and youth are particularly at risk. What is the best way to reach out to them ? The answer has proven to be the same that the church gave in the sixteenth century when the prayer book and the bible were first printed in English as opposed to Latin: We reach out to them in their own vernacular. And so HipHopEMass was born. .... I need to emphasize that this prayer book is not meant to be trendy. It's meant to be welcoming to those for whom the rhythms of rap are more comforting than the motets of William Byrd. That is not to say that rappers do not sometimes appreciate Byrd, but for them HipHopEMass is a gateway into the Episcopal tradition and into the life of the community of faith. For that reason, this book attempts to be a translation as opposed to a revision of what we understand as our order for Liturgy. The translations were done painstakingly by a team of people who have worked to be faithful and accurate. .... None of this would have happened without the vision of the unlikely Poppa T., aka The Reverend Timothy Holder, whose willingness to take risks for the sake of the gospel is an example to us all". -- Foreword, pp. vii-viii.

"[T]he years spent in the choir stalls initiated for me the spiritual bond between song and prayer, and I continue to find that bond a rich source of meditation. ....

"The several services contained in this book have been authorized by the 63rd General Convention of the Episcopal Church, in Houston, Texas, for trial use during the triennium 1971-1973. These forms of worship were prepared by the Standing Liturgical Commission in partial fulfillment of the Plan for Prayer Book Revision adopted by the General Convention in 1967. They are offered for trial use throughout the Church as alternatives to the corresponding services in The Book of Common Prayer, for study and for use in situations of actual worship, with a view to their further development and elaboration. They are not, at this stage, proposed as amendments to, or as substitutes for, the services in the Prayer Book". -- Preface.
