Looking for a book of responsive readings. Just responsive readings prefereably directly from the KJV--not an hymnal.

Any leads?

For this kind of question, when in doubt pillage the Anglican Book of Common Prayer (look for the version from the 1920s, later editions get too modern for your use). That will aleast give you the addresses for you to announce to the congregation.

Book of Common Prayer either 1662 edition or 1928 edition have it in KJV. The 1979 Common Prayer is RSV.

They need not be vain.

Readings are a way to reinforce doctrine and scripture lessons.

The Book of Common Prayer, by all means.

I agree with rsr. Responsive readings of scripture reinforce doctrine and can be a type of prayer. In Acts 4:23-30 the Jerusalem Church prayed in unison a amplified version of Psalms 2. It is wonderful thing to do and it was done in Unison by the Apostolic church. If a Pastor introduces this to a congregation he needs to explain why it is done. It is no more vain than singing a hymn.

Personaly I think not only Responsive readings of scripture should be done in worship but reciting the Apostles Creed plus recitation of portions of historic Baptist confessions in worship. Worship should reinforce our theology.

Here is an example of a responsive reading we did at my former church

CONFESSION OF FAITH - BUNYAN'S BAPTIST CATECHISM 1675
Pastor -Q. Why is not the God of the Christians the God of them that are not
Christians?

Congregation- A. He is their maker and preserver; but they have not chosen him to be their God.

Pastor -Q. Are there then other gods besides the God of the Christians?

Congregation- A. There is none other true God but HE; The unbelievers choose not him, but such gods as will suit their lusts.

Pastor - Q Who is a Christian?

Congregation- A. One that is born again, a new creature; one that sits at Jesus’ feet to hear his word; one that hath his heart purified and sancitified by faith; which is in Christ

Pastor - Q. What is self-denial?

Congregation- A. It is for a man to forsake his ALL, for the sake of Jesus Christ. Whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.’

Pastor - Q. Can you give me some motive to self-denial?

Congregation- A. Yes; the Lord Jesus denied himself for us; what sayest thou to that?

Pastor - Q. Wherein did Christ deny himself for us?

Congregation- A. He, Shed his most precious blood for us. Amen.


EXAMPLE OF UNISON READINGS WE DID

From 1609 Baptist Confession

Jesus Christ is true God and true man; the Son of God taking to himself, the true and pure nature of a man, and existing in a true human body. Jesus Christ, as pertaining to the flesh, was conceived by the Holy Spirit in the womb of the Virgin Mary, afterwards was born, circumcised, baptized, tempted; also that he hungered, thirsted, ate, drank, increased both in stature and in knowledge; he was wearied, he slept, at last was crucified, dead buried, he rose again, ascended into heaven; and that to himself as only King, Priest, and Prophet of the church, all power both in Heaven and earth is given. Amen


From the 1646 London Baptist Confession
The Lord Jesus Christ, of whom Moses and the Prophets wrote, the Apostles preached, He is the Son of God, the brightness of His glory, by whom He made the world; who upholdeth and governeth all things that He hath made; who also when the fulness of time was come, was made of a woman, of the tribe of Judah, of the seed of Abraham and David; to wit, of the virgin Mary, the Holy Spirit coming down upon her, the power of the most High overshadowing her; and He was also tempted as we are, yet without sin. Jesus Christ is made the mediator of the new and everlasting covenant of grace between God and man,
ever to be perfectly and fully the prophet, priest, and king of the Church of God for evermore. Amen


At my new Church on Easter Sunrise service we recited a portion of Luther's Smaller Catechism that was beautiful.
