The Book of Common Worship of 1993 is the fifth liturgical book of the Presbyterian Church (USA).

With the reunion of the United Presbyterian Church (USA) and the Presbyterian Church (US), which took place in 1983, the need arose for a new liturgical book of the Presbyterian Church (USA). Unlike the The Worshipbook of 1970, the new book was a massive volume that included a large variety of resources and services.

In preparation for the publication of the new book, seven supplemental liturcial resources (or SLRs), were produced for trial use:

  • The Service for the Lord's Day published in 1984.
  • Holy Baptism and Services for Renewal of Baptism published in 1985.
  • Christian Marriage published in 1982.
  • The Funeral: A Service of Witness to the Resurrection (published in 1986).
  • Daily Prayer published in 1987.
  • Services for Occasions of Pastoral Care published in 1990.
  • The Liturgical Year published in 1992.
