God We Worship, The: An Essay in Liturgical Theology (Kantzer Lectures In Revealed Theology Series)

Nicholas Wolterstorff

$27.99

Paperback
:In The God We Worship Nicholas Wolterstorff takes a ground-up approach to liturgical theology, examining the oft-hidden implications of traditional elements of liturgy. Given that "no liturgy has ever been composed from scratch," Wolterstorff argues that the assumptions taken into worship are key to perceiving the real depths of historical Christianity's understanding of God.

Across the liturgies of the Orthodox, Catholic, Episcopal, Lutheran, and Reformed churches, Wolterstorff highlights theologically neglected elements of God, such as an implicit liturgical understanding of God as listener. A dissection of liturgy is not only interesting, Wolterstorff argues, but crucial for reconciling differences between the God studied by theologians and the God worshiped by churchgoers on Sunday.
