Summary

Lutherans, Methodists, Presbyterians, and Episcopalians, paralleling Roman Catholics, have all recently made attempts at reforming and updating their respective calendars to reflect their present understanding of saints and their celebrations. Going one step further, renowned liturgical theologian Philip Pfatteicher here seeks to provide a common calendar.The New Book of Festivals and Commemorations picks up on renewed interest in the saints and other heroic figures of faith: apostles and martyrs, historical figures including artists, musicians, and scientists, and such modern men and women as Dag Hammarskjõld. Including Festivals, Lesser Festivals, Commemorations, and optional memorials, each entry comprises a brief biography and bibliography, a related reading, a hymn suggestion, and a prayer.
