The most enduring monuments surviving from the long history of mankind are those erected under the religious compulsion for the worship of God and the well being of the dead in some future existence. Such religious edifices have withstood natural decay and the misfortunes of war and conquest to be an impressive witness to the nature of man as worshipper. The term sacred space has been hijacked by yoga teachers, therapists and the unconventional to suit their own ends. In this book the approach is more orthodox and is Christian. Inspired by Walsingham (which is itself a sacred space) the authors here describe a new theology of sacred space - not just in relation to buildings but symbolically in terms the body the mind and the soul. One of the most original contributions from the Anglo Saxon scholar Michelle Brown who writes about the page as sacred space in the light of her studies of the Lindisfarne Gospels. This is an enlivening and provocative book which will touch on the concerns and passions of many people.

Breaking Open the Lectionary: Cycle B (Paperback): Ralph Margaret Nutting Breaking Open the Lectionary: Cycle B (Paperback)

R565 R519 Discovery Miles 5 190 Save R46 (8%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Longtime teacher and popular author Margaret Nutting Ralph brings her extensive knowledge of catechetics and the Bible to this book, a guide to better understanding the Lectionary. Why is it important to "break open the Lectionary"? "Because it is possible to listen to the Word as a living Word and never understand what that Word is teaching...or to understand what a biblical author is teaching but fail to apply that living Word to one's own life and times," writes the author. Breaking Open the Lectionary will help readers hear the living word in its biblical context, thus helping them understand what the biblical author intended to say as they apply that to their own lives. BREAKING OPEN THE LECTIONARY begins by discussing the Catholic approach to Scripture. Then, based on that knowledge, each passage from the Lectionary for Sunday Mass is interpreted in its biblical context to discover the intention of the original inspired author. Following each Sunday's commentaries are questions to help readers understand the difference between faith sharing and Bible study and to assist them in hearing the Word in the context of their own lives. In addition to deacon and homiletics classes, this book will appeal to: --those who will use the work as part of an RCIA process --participants in faith sharing groups --participants in Bible studies based on the Lectionary --lectors

Central to every vampire story is the undead's need for human blood, but equally compelling is the human ingestion of vampire blood, which often creates a bond. This blood connection suggests two primal, natural desires: breastfeeding and communion with God through a blood covenant. This analysis of vampire stories explores the benefits of the bonding experiences of breastfeeding and Christian and vampire narratives, arguing that modern readers and viewers are drawn to this genre because of our innate fascination with the relationship between human and maker.

Worship and Theology in England, Volume IV - From Newman to Martineau (Paperback): Horton Davies Worship and Theology in England, Volume IV - From Newman to Martineau (Paperback)
Horton Davies
R1,205 R919 Discovery Miles 9 190 Save R286 (24%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

In a rich survey encompassing music, art, literature, and architecture, Professor Davies studies the revolution in religious thought and worship in England during the Victorian era. One main trend, the return to conservatism, is revealed in the renascence of Roman Catholic worship, the Oxford Movement, and the search for traditional architecture and liturgy. This impetus was balanced by the drive toward innovation, through the Social Gospel, the Church's confrontation with science, and the new forms of worship sought by the Baptists, Congregationalists, and others. This is the fourth in a five-volume series. Originally published in 1962. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

This collection of ten essays constitutes the proceedings of a two-day conference held at Harvard in October 2007. The conference focused on three medieval manuscripts of Ambrosian chant owned by Houghton Library. The Ambrosian liturgy and its music, practiced in and around medieval Milan, were rare regional survivors of the Catholic Church s attempt to adopt a universal Roman liturgy and the chant now known as Gregorian. Two of the manuscripts under scrutiny had been recently acquired (one perhaps the oldest surviving source of Ambrosian music), and the third manuscript, long held among the Library s collections of illuminated manuscripts, had been newly identified as Ambrosian.

The generously illustrated essays gathered here represent the work of established experts and younger scholars. Together they explore the manuscripts as physical objects and place them in their urban and historical contexts, as well as in the musical and ecclesiastical context of Milan, Italy, and medieval Europe.

Missional Worship, Worshipful Mission - Gathering as God's People, Going Out in God's Name (Paperback): Ruth A Meyers Missional Worship, Worshipful Mission - Gathering as God's People, Going Out in God's Name (Paperback)
Ruth A Meyers
R635 R502 Discovery Miles 5 020 Save R133 (21%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Too many Christians still think that worship is only a Sunday-morning activity done inside the church, while mission involves how the church engages the outside world. But Ruth Meyers argues that a dynamic relationship exists between worship and mission -- that gathering as God's people includes at its heart our being sent out into the world in God's name. Meyers explores this relationship by taking readers through the various parts of the worship service: gathering, proclaiming the Word, praying for the world, celebrating the Eucharist, and going forth to continue participating in God's mission in the world. In each chapter Meyers includes stories of worship practices in different churches and considers how the actions of worship relate integrally to mission. Missional Worship, Worshipful Mission emphasizes that missional worship is not a set of techniques but rather an approach to worship and congregational life in which God's mission permeates every aspect of what the church does.

-How can we deepen the advances made in celebrating the reformed liturgy and adjust things that might not have advanced the reform? -How can both a greater comprehension of the sacred liturgy and a fuller participation in it be fostered? -How can we reemphasize particular Catholic characteristics of the liturgy that may have been eclipsed in some of the reform? These are three of the many questions addressed by renowned liturgical scholar Kevin W. Irwin in this reverential yet not uncritical book. Written to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the promulgation of the Second Vatican Council's Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy in December 1963, What We Have Done, What We Have Failed to Do has as its purpose to shed some light on, and to invite discussion about, the experience in which Catholics have been engaged since Vatican II in implementing and praying the liturgy as reformed after the council. Everyone involved in preparing and leading Catholics in the reformed liturgy will benefit from What We Have Done, What We Have Failed to Do, including bishops, priests, deacons, readers, servers, cantors, musicians, eucharistic ministers, and the variety of pastoral ministers whose daily efforts shape how and what we celebrate.

Biblical Psalms in Christian Worship - A Brief Introduction and Guide to Resources (Paperback): John D. Witvliet Biblical Psalms in Christian Worship - A Brief Introduction and Guide to Resources (Paperback)
John D. Witvliet
R490 R451 Discovery Miles 4 510 Save R39 (8%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The biblical Psalms are, without doubt, a valuable source for Christian worship, but the vast text can prove daunting without direction. John D. Witvliet offers a solution with this brief but comprehensive survey of key theological themes, practical guidelines, and published resources related to the use of the Psalms.

Arranged in symphonic form with a "prelude" and "interludes," "The Biblical Psalms in Christian Worship" opens with a foundation of words about the Psalms from our wise church fathers, followed by a broad meditation on the basics of worship. Witvliet follows with an extensive tutorial on choosing a Psalm, engaging a congregation, deciding whether to speak or sing the text, and many other practical solutions for integrating Psalms into congregational worship for any generation.

By including both classroom exercises and a brief musical Psalm sampler as helpful appendices, Witvliet provides all the resources necessary to spark a renewed engagement with the Psalms in community and public worship. This will be an important text for pastors and worship leaders desiring to lead their congregations to renewal.

The abbey of Fecamp, reformed in the early years of the eleventh century by William of Volpiano, abbot of St-Benigne at Dijon, was a key institution in the development of Norman monasticism in the middle ages. As one of the most energetic monastic reformers of his time, William was noted for the attention he paid to the liturgy of the many abbeys he superintended, and his liturgical cursus was influential in English and continental monastic houses. The Fecamp Ordinal, edited here from a manuscript of the early thirteenth century, but transmitting the liturgy observed in the abbey some two centuries earlier, is the first complete source of William's liturgical work to be printed. It is expanded by readings from complementary Fecamp service books, creating a text which gives a particularly detailed view of medieval monastic liturgy. The first volume contains the Temporale; this volume contains the remainder of the Ordinal (Sanctorale, Commune Sanctorum and Miscellanea), together with comprehensive indexes. DAVID CHADD teaches in the School of Music at the University of East Anglia.

Gregg Alan Mast
R1,857 Discovery Miles 18 570 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

The Catholic Apostolic Church is an intriguing yet little studied movement of nineteenth-century England. Despite its intense privacy, worship in the Catholic Apostolic Church, particularly its Eurcharistic service, was a major influence on late nineteenth-century liturgical renewals. The book begins with a study of important early figures in the life of the Catholic Apostolic Church, including Edward Irving, Henry Drummond, and John Bate Cardale. Then, after detailing the important practices of the Catholic Apostolic Church and the sources of its Eucharistic service, it proceeds to evaluate historically and spiritually its crucial effect upon the German Reformed Church, the Reformed Protestant Dutch Church in North America, and the Church of Scotland. The final chapter, entitled "A Quest for Catholicity" includes discussion of the search for the roots of ecumenical worship and the centrality of the Eucharist to liturgy. Also included with the book is an appendix and a bibliography of sources that includes scholarly monographs, articles, and liturgies organized by subject.
