Containing a varied, distinctive mix of traditional and contemporary songs and hymnody, this new hymnbook reflects the many developments in Baptist Church life over the past few years. The selection includes pieces from many Christian traditions and lands, with a number based on the beautiful chants of the Taize and Iona communities. "Baptist Praise and Worship" also retains the responsive readings or ministers and congregations included in the previous hymnbook, but these will now be dispersed through the book, placed at the end of each thematic section together with a list of other hymns relevant to that theme. In addition, the compilers have chosen to include sixty psalms, also for responsive reading. The tunes and settings have been selected to accommodate the wide variety of musical tastes within the Baptist movement. A mixture of the familiar and the more modern, they are suitable for those of all musical abilities and backgrounds, and as a new feature, guitar chords will also be included, making "Baptist Praise and Worship" suitable traditional, informal or spontaneous worship.
