Your book is excellent in the fact that it is so well illustrated with movements etc. most books I have used is with a still picture. You have done an excellent job ! Thanks for a job well done!!!
My 9 year old son doesn't like to sing in church with us and had shown some interest in signing. We have a couple of people in our congregation that sign instead of (or while
they) sing, and I find it a beautiful form of worship. I was excited to find a book that so clearly illustrates and explains the different signs and how to use them! We've learned a few of the signs
and now use them in our evening prayers.
The scope and depth of practical, useful information that Valerie Forsyth has included in this the Visual Dictionary of Expressive Worship is impressive. Most importantly, it's presented in a comprehensive format that is easy to understand. Readers will find many ideas to enrich their own worship.

[We are] commendatory of the effort put into the book, [we] both feel that its use is somewhat limited [here.] It is helpful in giving meaning to large gesture motions in a worship context, but in [our] estimation, is not completely true to the ASL.-
