The Word in the Desert: Anglican and Roman catholic Reactions to Liturgical Reform. Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: This is a study of one of the most extraordinary religious phenomena of the last thirty years. The disappearance of the Tridentine Mass and the unrelenting assault on the Book of Common Prayer have created widespread hostility and a substantial loss of church membership. An informed and well-researched survey of this diverse and burgeoning movement is timely and will be of considerable interest to church people throughout the world. The topic also has linguistic and sociological implications, and relevance to liturgiology, theology, Church history and literary criticism. Barry Spurr's book provides this broad cultural analysis in a clear and illuminating account. While it deals fairly with all views, the book is written from a conservative standpoint, and will undoubtedly be considered controversial in liberal circles. What is certain is that all sides will want to read it.

Publishing widely on Renaissance and Modernist poetics, his previous books include "The Word in the Desert" (1995), "Lytton Strachey" (1995), and the acclaimed "Studying Poetry "(Palgrave Macmillan 2006), now in its second edition.
