THE slim paperback Eighteenth-Century Anglican Confirmation: Renewing the covenant of grace by Philip Tovey is no. 79 in the Joint Liturgical Studies series from the Alcuin Club and the Group for the Renewal of Worship (Hymns Ancient & Modern, £7.99 (£7.20); 978-1-84825-779-5). It uses new material to support the argument of his longer book, Anglican Confirmation 1662-1820 (Ashgate, 2014). The author highlights the importance during the period of sermons on confirmation, and has included material showing how confirmands approached it.
