When We Pray: The Future of Common Prayer Paperback (381 pages) – Coventry Press 2020

The book originated collecting presentations for a symposium on The future of the prayer book tradition hosted by Stephen Burns and Robert Gribben at Trinitiy College Theological School in Parkville, Melbourne in 2018. Then others (myself included) had essays added to those contributions.
