Bible and the Liturgy
$37.00

To a deplorable extent, Christians accept Church rituals as sacred but baffling heirlooms from the Church's past. It is to remedy this situation that Father Daniélou has written this book. The Bible and the Liturgy illuminates, better than has ever before been done, the vital and meaningful bond between Bible and liturgy. Father Daniélou aims at bringing clearly before his reader's minds the fact that the Church's liturgical rites and feasts are intended, not only to transmit the grace of the sacraments, but to instruct the faithful in their meaning as well as the meaning of the whole Christian life. It is through the sacraments in their role as signs that we learn. So that their value will be appreciated, Daniélou attempts to help us rediscover the significance of these rites so that the sacraments may once again be thought of as the prolongation of the great works of God in the Old Testament and the New.

Chief Divine Service of the Evangelical-Lutheran Church
$44.99
Fredrich Lochner's work in hymnology and liturgy has been recognized as preeminent among liturgical scholars for well more than 100 years. Excerpts of his writings have been published in periodicals, and a condensed version of his original book published in the early 1950's, but the full work has not been available to today's reader. Recently, as interest in historical liturgies has increased, serious liturgists have been asking for an English edition of Lochner's original book. This authoritative translation includes all of the original material, including references to liturgical practices that are no longer observed. Although this translation has been adapted to use the modern wording of Lutheran Service Book, the reader who is interested in the historical perspective will value the scholarship and the historicity present in this edition.

Complete Guide to Christian Symbols
$49.99
Without the meaning behind sacred symbolism, its beauty quickly fades. A Complete Guide to Christian Symbols provides a wealth of Christian symbolism in one place, in one artistic style, in one format. It briefly explains each symbol, offering a bit of historical use and practical advice on their use. Sacred art follows a parallel path with sacred music. Both point us to the Word of God by emphasizing Scripture or illustrating it or repeating it. Christian symbolism takes things another step by condensing narratives and ideas into concise visuals. By pondering them, it is possible to accent the richness of Scripture from a simple design. Readers will appreciate this guidebook of symbolism when confronted with unfamiliar sanctuaries, denominations, or sacred art.

Hearing Our Prayers: An Exploration of Liturgical Listening
$49.95

How do we hear our prayers? In the words of philosopher Gemma Corradi Fiumara, there can "be no saying without hearing, no speaking which is not an integral part of listening, no speech which is not somehow received." Therefore, hearing should be considered an essential aspect of participation in Christian worship. However, although almost all studies of Christian worship attend to the words spoken and sung, almost none consider how worshippers hear in the liturgical event.

In Hearing Our Prayers, Juliette Day draws upon insights from liturgical studies, philosophy, psychology, acoustical science, and architectural studies to investigate how acts of audition occur in Christian worship. The book discusses the different listening strategies worshippers use for speech, chant, and music, as well as for silence and noise: why paying attention in church can be so difficult and how what we hear is affected by the buildings in which worship takes place. Day concludes by identifying "liturgical listening" as a particular type of ritual participation and emphasizes that liturgical listening is foundational for the way in which we pray, and think about God, the church, and the world.

Heaven on Earth: The Gifts of Christ in the Divine Service
$18.99

The liturgy is not a style of worship. The liturgy is the substance of justification as it is brought through means.

This book is an introduction to the liturgy and its importance. It takes the liturgy and makes it easy for the layperson to understand that the New Testament church service brings God's presence, in Jesus the Christ to the people of God who have been cleansed from their sins. This is a holy meeting made possible by the blood of Christ that cleanses the believer. This understanding of the church service helps one to understand that the church service is more than a meeting place; it is the manifestation of the New Testament church on earth as Christ calls His bride around Word and Sacraments.

Heaven on Earth will deepen your understanding of the Divine Service and why it remains the Church's chief worship service.

In Defense of Christian Ritual: The Case for a Biblical Pattern of Worship

In Defense of Christian Ritual: The Case for a Biblical Pattern of Worship
$16.95

Is Christian worship best conceived as a creative, Spirit-fueled experience that any formalized structure necessarily inhibits, or are there any biblical prescriptions around for worship that Christians were meant to follow?

In light of recent research from various disciplines-including history, psychology, and New Testament studies - In Defense of Christian Ritual: The Case for a Biblical Pattern of Worship argues the latter.

Specifically, this book will demonstrate three things.

  • First, in contrast to the anti-ritualism so prevalent in modern churches, ritual's indispensable role in providing biblically-centered context and content is detailed.
  • Second, contrary to modern opinion, a definite pattern of worship is shown to be present both in our earliest New Testament documents and the early church.
  • Finally, new research will reveal that the assumptions about creativity lying at the heart of modern contemporary worship are fundamentally flawed.
  • Readers will discover that the apostolic teaching embodied in the church's early ritual, as expressed in its liturgy, was never intended to be outdated or rendered irrelevant in light of current fads. It was never meant to be a relic of the ancient past, but a structured way of bringing the "memoirs of the apostles" -that Jesus died for sinners- to God's people in the here and now.

    Inclusive Yet Discerning: Navigating Worship Artfully
    $22.00
    Worshiping communities today have access to more arts and styles from more times and places than ever before. In this volume Frank Burch Brown explores how Christians can navigate this increasingly diverse world of worship. / Brown combines an abiding admiration of classical idioms with an appreciation of new possibilities for the arts in worship. Interacting with a wide range of religious thinkers and leaders -- from Augustine and John Calvin to Rick Warren, Marcus Borg, and the Pope -- he addresses questions concerning "good" art and "good" music for worship. / A lively and thought-provoking book, Inclusive yet Discerning is permeated by Brown's wide-ranging knowledge and deep love of the arts and his desire to articulate a theological aesthetic that, as he says, "will have teeth but not fangs."

    Journey Into the Heart of God: Living the Liturgical Year (New)
    $64.99
    Journey into the Heart of God is a captivating exploration of the history and evolution of the Church Year: the cycle of seasons in the Christian tradition that begins with Advent and culminates with Easter and is marked by the celebrations of saints, feast days, and the reading of Scripture as appointed by the Church.

    Primarily through deft examination of the Western Church, Philip H. Pfatteicher reveals how the liturgical calendar has been transformed over thousands of years. It is a work of art--the collaborative achievement of generations of hands and minds. He shows how the church year dramatizes and grounds the strange complexity of the human experience and how it encourages honesty, humility, growth, and maturity in those who live by it.

    Pfatteicher also offers insight into the liturgical texts of the Eucharist, the less familiar Daily Office, and the people's theology voiced in hymns from a broad spectrum of ancient and modern traditions. It will be an indispensable resource for both clergy and laity in the liturgical denominations, including Catholicism, Lutheranism, and Anglicanism.

    Music in Early Lutheranism
    $39.99
    This volume is an introduction to the music and worship of early Lutheranism as reflected in the life and work of seven of the most significant musicians and composers whose work shaped church music in Lutheranism's first 150 years. In the work of these men, the evangelical thrust of the Reformation took shape to combine a truly popular vehicle of the people--the chorale--with art music of the highest excellence. The result of their efforts was some of the greatest church music the world has even known. This examination of the music of early Lutheranism together with the theological ideas which motivated its composers may well be the first step to approaching more realistically and faithfully the problems and questions which continue to vex the musical and liturgical life of today's church.

    On Any Given Sunday: The Story of Christ in the Divine Service
    $22.95

    On any given Sunday the Christian approaches Christ who is present in Word and Meal. The songs, movements, and prayers that surround this Word and Meal are called the Divine Service. It is God's (divine) service to us and our proclamation of Christ's life, death, and resurrection to ourselves and anybody that enters the church on that Sunday.

    One way to appreciate the traditional divine service is to see the life of Christ on display. The major events in the life of Christ are hinted at or explicitly mentioned in the classic order of service. We rightly plead for God's mercy when we enter his presence. God's answer is Christ. Traditionally Christians have sung the Christmas song "Gloria to God in the highest" after pleading, " Lord, have mercy!" With this reminder of Christ's birth we begin the story of Christ. Soon we wave our palm branches and sing " Hosanna!" on Palm Sunday. We cry the Good Friday prayer, " Lamb of God" . We eat with our resurrected Lord as did the Emmaus disciples, and we receive a blessing as we enter the same crazy world the disciples did after Jesus blessed them as he ascended into heaven.

    This volume aims to teach the Divine Service to both the lifelong worshipper who was never taught why the church does the things the church does on Sunday mornings and the curious observer of this ancient tradition. It is divided into two parts. Part One: A Story of the Divine Service is a story of a young married couple encountering Christ's forgiveness at a church service and finding the ability to forgive each other. Part Two: The Life of Christ in Poetry and Prose explains the life of Christ as told in the classic Divine Service.

    It is the hope that this book helps teach this beautiful but under-appreciated jewel of our Christian heritage.

    On Liturgical Theology
    $29.95

    Nearly everything that theologians write on liturgy, Father Kavanagh notes, is often called liturgical theology, although on closer examination such works appear to be either dogmatic theologies about the liturgy or systematic theologies making use of liturgical data. None truly reflects how liturgy shapes theology or is theology or even relates to theology.

    This work is Father Kavanagh's effort to substantiate the existence of a truly liturgical theology. It will raise almost as many questions as it answers, but it will also further insight into theology and liturgy as it assays their relationship.
