 serving at the altar, Tuesday, June 22, 2010
By Cris South

This is a beautiful book for supporting and defining the liturgical role of deacons. Plater is a wonderful author, concise and yet very readable. There is a lot variation between churches with regard to the roles of laity and deacons in the service of the Eucharist. With an obvious shortage of deacons, the laity has stepped forward to fill those gaps. Some people worry that having deacons will take away from the service of laity, giving it to deacons instead. However, there is a balance in the roles and a beauty to the service that Plater presents very clearly. It also answers many questions as to the exact hows of liturgical service. I will read and refer to this book repeatedly and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves the litergy and the celebration of the Holy Eucharist.
