Professor of liturgical studies Bryan Spinks published his newest book with SCM Press London and Westminster/John Knox Press:  Do This in Remembrance of Me. The Eucharist from the Early Church to the Present Day.  The book, a study of the history and theology of the Eucharist, is the fifth volume in the SCM Studies in Worship and Liturgy series. It is aimed at undergraduate and graduate theology students, clergy, and theologically literate laity. He became president of the Society of Oriental Liturgy in June, and will preside over its 2016 sixth international conference in Etchmiadzin, Armenia, at the invitation of Karekin II,  Catholicos of the Armenian Orthodox Church.

Back in March, Spinks gave two papers at the University of Glasgow, taking time out with wife Care to visit Loch Ness! And in late August he is in Mirfield, England giving a major paper for the Society for Liturgical Study conference, entitled “On the Wrong Side of History? The Case of William Whittingham, Dean of Durham 1563-1579.”
