This book covers a broad spectrum of topics relating to Lutheran liturgical worship. Rev. Paul H. D. Lang describes the theological significance and historic, confessional Lutheran position on liturgy, ritual, and ceremony. He gives a wonderful commentary on the physical elements (church architecture, sacred vessels, churchly furniture, use of candles, etc.) and the physical movements (standing, kneeling, crossing oneself, processing, etc.) within the Divine Service and other minor services and orders, including the role of the clergy and others assisting in worship as well as the role of the laity. Lang provides principles of liturgical music as well as a detailed explanation of the liturgical church year with its richness and variety, saints’ days, and the use of colors in the church.
This is an essential resource not only for pastors, elders, altar guild members, organists, choir directors, and other congregational leaders, but also and especially for earnest laity who want to better understand the way we worship.
This reprint features the same content as the 2004 edition but with improved formatting and new cover artwork by Edward Riojas.
