Keith Pecklers aims to give theologians, liturgists, priests, pastors and laity of all denominations a new sense of the theology of liturgy. Grounded in the theology of the Mystical Body of Christ, the author calls for full and active liturgical participation necessarily including social responsibility. At the heart of the liturgical movement is one fundamental principle* liturgy and social justice are inseparable. The author calls for a new liturgical movement and for the rediscovery of that inseparable relationship within the church.;He begins by answering the question what is liturgy? and he gives a brief history of the liturgy in the west.

In Worship, Keith Pecklers aims to gives theologians, liturgists, clergy and laity of all denominations a new sense of the theology of liturgy. From a historical/theological treatment of the evolution of Christian worship in the West, Pecklers addresses 20th century liturgical reforms and emphasizes the liturgy's role in the social and moral transformation of human society.
