Bible and the Liturgy
$32.00
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.

Brief History of Christian Worship

Brief History of Christian Worship
$22.99
Most histories of Christian worship are written as if nothing significant in liturgical history ever happened in North America, as if cultural diversities were insignificant in the development of worship, and as if most of what mattered were words the priest or minister addressed to God. This book is a revisionist work, attempting to give new direction to liturgical history by treating the experience of worship of the people in the pews as the primary liturgical document. It means liturgical history written facing the other way--that is, looking into the chancel rather than out of it. Relishing the liturgical diversity of recent centuries as firm evidence of Chritianity's ability to adapt to a wide variety of peoples and places, Professor White shows that this tendency has been apparent in Chrisitian worship since its inception in the New Testament churches. Instead of imposing one tradition's criteria on worship, he tries to give a balanced and comprehensive approach to the development of the dozen or more traditions surviving in the modern world.

Chief Divine Service of the Evangelical-Lutheran Church
$39.99
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.

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)

Journey Into the Heart of God: Living the Liturgical Year (New)
$49.99
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

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 Liturgical Theology

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.
