Beyond the Altar: Perspective for Liturgical Worship


SKU: 978-0-9929050-5-7 Category:

Good liturgy should point not to itself, but to the One who is worshipped.

The perspective of liturgical worship – its ultimate focal point – is not the priest behind the altar but the God who is both present in the divine Word and Sacrament, and absent because these are only signs of One whom church walls cannot contain.

On the basis of current Roman Catholic practice, this book explores the here and the not-here of Christian ritual worship.
