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 GCÍs role in the social and moral transformation of human society. The social dimension of worship is further highlighted in chapters on popular religion and inculturation. He considers the future of Christian worship in light of a new sociological reality: the break up of the stable parish community, credible preaching within an increasingly secularized society, hospitality to those who are often made to feel like pariahs in our assemblies, and the growing rift between conservatives and progressives who share membership in the same church.

From the Inside Flap:

What is worship? Keith F. Pecklers, S.J., answers this important theological question by focusing on the basics of Christian worship. Beginning with the definitions of such terms as ?ritual? and ?liturgy? he writes in a very readable style about the historical/theological foundations of worship, tracing the evolution of Christian liturgy from the earliest centuries of the Christian era up to the reforms of Vatican II. Pecklers focuses on such liturgical issues of importance in our post-Vatican II Church as: inculturation, popular religion, and the social responsibility that authentic worship requires. He also considers some key social issues of the twenty-first century and their impact on our worship: the break-up of the stable parish community and decline in church attendance; the clergy shortage and priestless parishes; ecumenical liturgical cooperation and interreligious dialogue; the credibility of preaching; and how worship welcomes or excludes the marginated. Chapters are ?Worship and Ritual,? ?Worship in Development and Decline,? ?Worship in Crisis and Challenge,? ?Worship in Transition,? ?Worship and Culture,? ?Worship and Popular Religion,? ?Worship and Society,? and ?Worship and the Future of Christianity.??Valuable to anyone interested in the history and possible future of ongoing liturgical reform.? The Jurist?This text is a ?must have? resource and Peckler is to be commended for his contribution to the field.? Catholic Books Review?This is a good book. Pecklers . . . remains a steady and knowledgeable guide.? Review for Religions?Those whose task is to promote a deeper understanding of the Church?s liturgy at the basic level are very much in Peckler?s debt.? Theological Studies?Keith Pecklers writes with a rare combination of energy, learning (which he wears lightly) and an awareness of the complex questions that face Christians all over the world today. He communicates a strong sense of the dynamic of tradition, pushing us on into the future?provided, that is, that we are prepared to sacrifice some of the things that we hold dear, which at times are more a hindrance than a help. We can only believe and do certain things not because they are Anglican, or Roman Catholic or Lutheran or anything else, but because they are true.? Kenneth Stevenson Bishop of Portsmouth?Being a trained liturgist, I have been strongly connected to the Liturgical Press and its publications for over 30 years. As a matter of fact, I have every copy of Worship dating back to 1970! It is a treasure to be able to go back and look at the growth of the liturgical movement through this absolutely wonderful publication. . . . I have purchased many publications of the Liturgical Press over the years and will continue to do so. The quality of the scholarship in all your publications is superb.? Jeanne Trinque?Fr. Pecklers is known for several excellent works on the history of liturgical development in the twentieth century and the nature of liturgical translation, and he here brings together a great deal of scholarly research in readily digestible form.? The Tablet?Keith Pecklers is to be congratulated in particular for his resolute focus on the forest, even as he surveys its many trees. His ecumenical perspective and commitment is evident throughout?in the historical section, in the delineation of issues and in the breadth of scholarship on which he draws. . . . Read it all!?

Book Description Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. 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. The principle of lex orandi, lex credendi (we pray what we believe) is also examined. Pecklers argues that liturgy can be used as an instrument of social and moral transformation. For example, how do we show liturgical hospitality to those who are often made to feel like pariahs in our assemblies - the disabled, elderly, immigrants, divorcees and other minorities? And how does the Christian liturgy relate to our Jewish and Muslim neighbours?He also considers how the liturgy may be used to address problems within the churches, such as the b.
