The seminar and book are coming at a time when liturgical revision in on the agenda of a number of traditions. In the Roman Catholic Church, questions are being heard about current and future sacramentaries (see Lost in Translation). In the Anglican Church of Australia, some revision is being proposed--if not a new prayer book, then an expanded range of web-based provisions. And around the Anglican Communion, the Church of England is experimenting with Messy Church eucharists (see Beyond Common Worship) and the Episcopal Church is embracing change. See Miranda Hassett's blog, Revision Matters, and for a contribution to the North American discussion by two people involved in the Melbourne seminar, see Bryan Cones and Stephen Burns' article "A Prayer Book for the Twenty-first Century?" from the fall 2014 edition of Anglican Theological Review: http://www.anglicantheologicalreview.org/static/pdf/articles/burns_cones.pdf
