SACRAMENTS AND WORSHIP, edited and introduced by Maxwell Johnson, is a sourcebook covering Eastern and Western Christian traditions. It seeks to be an introductory resource for students of liturgical studies (SPCK, £25 (£22.50); 978-0-281-06803-6).

Brian Glennon has compiled very short reflections for Eucharistic Ministers. The book is aimed at Roman Catholics, but most of the material is equally applicable to Anglicans. Royalties will go to the Peter McVerry Trust, which works with homeless people (The Columba Press, £5.99 (£5.40); 978-1-85607-766-8).

Channels of Prayer: Praying with sacred objects, structures and symbols by Innocent Chibueze Ezeonyeasi, a Roman Catholic priest, is a devotional book about sacramentals. Especially relevant to servers and sacristans, and including much that is familiar to Anglicans, it offers food for thought and prayer as it systematically moves through the church and the accessories of Catholic worship, including liturgical colours and symbols such as IHS (St Pauls, £9.99 (£9); 978-0-85439-856-0).
