9780814615188: Creating Uncommon Worship: Transforming the Liturgy of the Eucharist

Creating Uncommon Worship is a groundbreaking resource that seeks to transform the way worship is conducted and experienced. Offering helpful suggestions on how to avoid the common problem of restricting liturgy to words being spoken in the front of the church, Creating Uncommon Worship is filled with ideas on how to enrich the liturgy by creating a context of action, movement, and symbolic expression involving the whole assembly. Creating Uncommon Worship is an essential theological companion that not only provides instruction and inspiration for the clergy and worship leaders, but also fully engages the laity in creating nurturing and challenging worship.

The Reverend Richard Giles is the author of the best-selling Re-pitching the Tent, a guide to reordering the church building. Previously the Anglican vicar of an inner-city parish in Huddersfield, United Kingdom, he was appointed Dean of Philadelphia with the task of reordering the cathedral church in that city.
