Let Us Pray is a guide to the Catholic Mass. It is not so much a book for someone seeking a personal understanding of the Eucharist as it is a manual for ministers and planners. It offers a thorough commentary on the rubrics of the Mass, that is, the how-to instructions for each part of the celebration.

The publication of the revised General Instruction of the Roman Missal (GIRM) in 2002-03 seems to be the occasion for this new guide. It proceeds through the Mass from opening to close. For each part, author Paul Turner explains what church documents say, principles behind the rubrics, and common practices.

Why not just read the GIRM instead of a book like this? What more does this author offer?
1) Turner unpacks the GIRM. He shows how principles mentioned in one part of the GIRM apply to each part of the Mass, and he highlights variations and exceptions.
2) He includes guidelines from other documents - Directory for Masses with Children, Pastoral Introduction to the Order of Mass, etc.
3) Turner points out changes from the earlier General Instruction, explaining what is new in the 'new' GIRM and why.
4) Turner describes what actually happens in parishes, not just what 'should' happen. This includes things not addressed in the GIRM, such as some gestures and postures of the assembly.

In this last aspect, the treatment is uneven. Some popular practices are mentioned, others not. When Turner says certain things are common in parishes, is this simply an observation? Or based on research?

Even so, this is a valuable and practical guide for liturgical ministers and planners - priests, deacons, lay ministers, liturgy committees, and those who are serious students of liturgy.
