Sequential or Direct Ordination?

A return to the Sources
ISBN: 978-1-60724-404-2
In the Anglican Communion, the medieval practice, which certainly had some earlier roots, continued—that ordination came to any one individual in this 'sequence': deacon, presbyter, bishop. The Anglican ordinal was so committed to this pattern at the Reformation that Cranmer's text prayed that deacons 'may so well use themselves in this inferior office, that they may be found worthy to be called unto higher ministries in thy Church.' Latterly, however, Anglicans have not only sought to develop the calling of a deacon in his or her own right, but have in some places and cases promoted the idea that the true calling of a deacon and of a presbyter would be best clarified by a separate 'direct' ordination. John Gibaut, a liturgical theologian of the Anglican Church of Canada, presents the case for 'direct' ordination—rooting it in the patristic era, and spelling out its implications in the present day.

Offerings from Kenya to Anglicanism

Liturgical Texts and Contexts including 'A Kenyan Service of Holy Communion'
ISBN: 978-1-60724-399-1
The 1989 Kenyan eucharistic text has had much publicity, including its use at the opening service of the 1998 Lambeth Conference, but has had little in the way of introduction or commentary. These two authors, with much Kenyan experience and with encouragement from the key persons in Kenya, here provide the text with a valuable contextual exposition.

The Syriac Version of the Liturgy of St James

A brief history for Students
ISBN: 978-1-60724-398-4
This is a Study which will open windows galore for Westerners, for not only is the history as recorded likely to cover ground untrodden by most English-speaking liturgists, but equally the surrounding field of study and its other scholarly occupants (who are laid heavily under contribution) will also be largely unknown.
