Songs of Praise: A Lent and Easter Companion by Andrew Barr

Songs of Praise is already a successful brand name and must be well o­n its way to becoming a denomination. With a weekly televised worship experience, a new monthly Songs of Praise magazine and now liturgical books following the church year, it can o­nly be a matter of time before people are given the opportunity to register as belonging to Songs of Praise when they go into hospital.

The Lent and Easter book which bears the Songs of Praise name contains material gathered together and written by Andrew Barr. Mr Barr was for some years involved in the production of the television programme and is now the convenor of the Scottish Episcopal Church?s Liturgy Committee.
The book is attractive and up to the high visual standard that people will expect from Lion Publishing. Pictures, prayers and homely stories are woven around memories of bringing the Songs of Praise experience to television through the years.

This book is more likely to be read by those who feel better connected to the church in their hearts than by their attendance, than any number of Lent books recommended by Bishops and Archbishops. Mission can be a gentle thing: photographs of holy daffodils and the poem Footprints are just what many want and what many will find here and enjoy. This is a well-produced book which belongs on every church bookstall in the Lentan-springtime of the year.

Songs of Praise: A Lent and Easter Companion costs ?9.99 and is published by Lion, in conjunction with the BBC.
