Defend, O Lord provides an excellent introduction to the practice of confirmation as it is understood in the 1662 Book of Common Prayer. Martin Davie supplies a concise and clear summary of the background to the confirmation service, its liturgical development, and the theology that underlies it. There is also a very helpful commentary on the text, and insightful answers to questions that arise about the practice of confirmation. It is a very readable book by a scholar who has mastered the material and made it accessible to a wide audience. I recommend it wholeheartedly.
"Amid the controversies of the seventeenth century, one moderate and comprehensive voice stands out - that of Archbishop James Ussher. His proposal for bishops in a Reformed church failed to catch on at the time, but in our more ecumenical age they deserve to be heard again. Peter Blair has done this in a winsome way that may help us reassess for the global church of tomorrow."
