    Additional Info
    This sequel to Gordon Lathrop’s highly successful Holy Things is an exercise in liturgical theology, viewing the activities of worship as a means of defining and discussing the concept “church.” It centers on community and assembly to discuss the sacraments. It focuses on ecumenism and inculturation as central test cases for a liturgically derived idea of church.

    In hopes of invigorating the local church, Lathrop explores the meaning of the term “church,” the relationship of the local liturgical assembly and other Christian assemblies (catholicity); the personal and communal character of liturgical assembly; the unity of the churches; the critical principles of liturgy and culture; openness to what is radically other; and liturgical evangelization. Lathrop’s work grounds a notion of church that is personal yet communal, universal, but not triumphalistic.

  • Christian Assembly : Marks Of The Church In A Pluralistic Age

    $24.00

    What is church? What makes the church one? While these questions may seem innocuous, church has become conflicted territory, with internal factions, external pressures, and ecumenical turmoil all calling for a more positive, sturdy, more resilient notion of Christian community.
    Wengert approaches the questions as a Reformation historian. He shows how the New Testament notion of ”marks” of the church was taken up by Martin Luther and developed by Phillip Melanchthon not as a descriptive tag but as a criterion for authenticity in Christian community. Lathrop, a liturgical theologian, shows concretely how those marks can stamp the worship life of a congregation as well as the evaluative work of congregations with their pastors, bishops, superintendents, and conference ministers.
