Index to Reformed Worship

As you continue to use RW for worship planning, you may find an index helpful. We have compiled an index by subject and author, and we plan to update this index after each issue so that a cumulative running index will always be available for a small fee. To receive your copy of the index, please send $3.00 US or $3.50 CDN to Reformed Worship Index, 2850 Kalamazoo Ave. SE, Grand Rapids, MI, 49560.

Reformed Worship articles are also indexed in Religion Index One: Periodicals (RIO; book reviews are listed in Index to Book Reviews in Religion). Both indexes are published by the American Theological Library Association, 820 Church Street, 3rd Floor, Evanston, Illinois 60201.

Psalter Hymnal Concordance

A complete concordance to the Psalter Hymnal is now available. Our thanks to the Rev. Rolf Bouma, copastor at Eastern Avenue Christian Reformed Church, Grand Rapids, MI, for generating this concordance from his word processor.

The concordance lists nearly every word of every song in the Psalter Hymnal, along with the song number in which that word appears. The only words not listed are articles, conjunctions, prepositions, helping verbs, and other common English word forms which, because of their frequency of use, would be of little help in identifying the content of hymns.

The concordance is available for $5.00 US; $6.00 CDN. To order a copy, send your payment to CRC Publications, 2850 Kalamazoo SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49560.
