The book presents a variety of possibilities for enacting services in the Book of Common Worship and, thereby, stimulates the imagination of worship planners and leaders in accomplishing their various tasks. In particular, The Companion provides background information regarding the services, comments on the rubrics accompanying texts, and suggests some ways to use the texts and, occasionally, abridge or augment them for particular situations.
Sections in The Companion parallel those in the Book of Common Worship and include: Service for the Lord's Day, Liturgical Year, Baptism, Daily Prayer, Marriage, and Music, among others. The Companion also contains a study guide to the Book of Common Worship."
The Companion to the Book of Common Worship was prepared by a task force of The Office of Theology and Worship, PC(USA).
