PREFACE (by J. G. Davies) To explain in what was this New Westminster Dictionary of Liturgy and Worship differs from its predecessor is in fact to call attention to the main trends in liturgy and worship that have become evident over the past one and a half decades.
Amen A Hebrew word meaning 'firm' or 'established," and then, as an adverb, 'certainly' or 'assuredly'.
Liturgies In the singular the word 'liturgy' denotes an act of worship, more specifically the eucharist*.
The ASB (1980) has reverted to the Ambrosian wording with as an alternative the third one of the American BCP, substituting eternal for everlasting. (Words of Administration, p. 544)
