In this volume Mountain supplies at least one scripture paraphrase and/or theme hymn to go along with existing hymn tunes for each Sunday and major festival in the Revised Common Lectionary for all three cycles.The hymn-canticles in this collection may be used as hymns in their own right, or as lyrical substitutes for the scripture readings. It is the authors opinion that these are most effective as the hymn that either precedes or follows the sermon or as hymns to underscore the meaning of other special events in worship.In addition to chapters for cycles A, B and C, there is an index for hymn-canticles listed by books of the Bible, an index for theme hymns, and an extensive bibliography.Charles Mountain has given us new liturgical thoughts for some wonderful old hymn tunes. Such new thoughts give us pause to think anew about our relationship with our heavenly Father. Certainly, these new thoughts tied together with familiar melodies will be helpful and meaningful for congregation in our modern setting. David W. Peters Pastor, Messiah Lutheran Church Denver, CO
