"Rev. ed. of: The prayer book guide to Christian education. 1983".
"Essentially a companion guide to the BCP, this book is useful for families who pray or study at home, altar guilds, teachers, Education for Ministry mentors, editors of parish publications, and especially clergy. Moving chronologically through the calendar of seasons and commemorations Russell first defines and describes the season; reviews major saints and holidays; provides themes, great words, symbols, traditions, and social justice themes for the season, as well as great Bible stories and events and even looks at the season through the eyes of a child. ... Next he explores the lectionary texts for each Sunday of the season, for all three cycles. This is an important resource book for every congregation".
