Product description
Worship is not something that the church does, it is an encounter through which Christians are equipped to bring transformation to the world. This second volume in an important new series on worldwide Anglicanism draws on examples from many parts of the Anglican Communion to address the subject of liturgical formation: how liturgy forms Christians for participation in God's work in the world, as well as the formation of Christians for worship and of those who lead worship. Voices from the UK, Africa, the US, Canada and the Philippines consider key aspects of liturgical formation: connecting the liturgy with local contexts, how we learn about God and ourselves through worship, the connection between liturgy and doing justice, all-age engagement in worship, the role of music in liturgical formation, training those who lead liturgical celebration, and more.
Product Reviews

'This book will clearly be of interest to those involved in training in formation for worship ... In my own situation it will inform, among other things, an ongoing discussion about how best to shape the initial training of Readers. It could also provide a useful focus for discussion about the aims and activities of Diocesan Liturgical Committees.' -- Les Oglesby 2011
