The book itself is great, and provides good ideas for putting together a wedding ceremony.The enclosed CD, however, falls short of what is implied in the description. It contains only Appendices A, B, and C (which means you have some useful documents), but it DOES NOT CONTAIN any of the actual text you would assemble into a wedding liturgy - that part, you must type in yourself. That is a significant disappointment, and - since you probably already have questionnaires for people to fill out, and probably a standard bulletin, the CD won't help much. On the other hand, if you are starting from scratch, maybe this is for you.Either way, even the text on the back of the book seems to suggest that the CD-ROM will help you assemble the service. I supposed that is true, but not quite in the way you might expect. I think that Abingdon needs to clarify that in future printings.
Very helpful for creating a traditional, but modern wedding ceremony in the United Methodist Church. A tool to help facilitate the pleasing of the parents, keeping the Pastor's toes intact, all while meeting the needs of the Bride and Groom.
The book is a collection of prayers, vows and communion liturgy from churches and denominations around the world. I have used this book in ministry when I performed a wedding with a Methodist colleague. The new copy I recently ordered comes with a cd. The book can be helpful when you marry couples who come from different protestant denominations or for couples who like fresh and unusual prayers. It is a good addition to your wedding liturgy library.
I definitely found the content/outline helpful, but the conversion to Kindle pretty much garbled the first three chapters. As I was after the outline, not the content, I was able to make-do.
