    The Rites and Wrongs of Liturgy : Why Good Liturgy Matters

    ,
    We all want to celebrate the liturgy well, to experience good, uplifting, and meaningful worship. But what is the best route to follow? In The Rites and Wrongs of Liturgy, Thomas O’Loughlin offers a way forward that strengthens faith, builds up Christian community, and points toward a new direction based on liturgical principles that are rooted in our natures as ritual beings as well as in the gospel. The Rites and Wrongs of Liturgy explains why good liturgy is important, how to recognize it, and how to assess liturgy in terms of a larger vision of the Christian life. O’Loughlin, a seasoned theologian and teacher, identifies ten principles that make for good liturgy. Such liturgy must be honest, open, joyful, inclusive, celebrative of community, facilitative of engagement, based in creation, attentive to the marginalized, free of clutter, and true to the pattern of the incarnation. Since good celebrations build faith and bad liturgy weakens it, these principles promise to bring new life and meaning to every celebrating community.

    Speaking the Truth : Preaching in a diverse culture

    , ,
    `Truth' is a difficult subject in a pluralistic culture, and `the truth' is even more challenging. Yet the preacher's call is to be a speaker of truth - the truth of God in Jesus Christ. What does it take to speak the truth faithfully as a preacher of the gospel, for that truth to be heard, and for words and ideas to generate actions and build relationships? Samuel Wells has learned that speaking the truth means telling the Christian story alongside the contemporary secular story. It means helping your hearers perceive both the harmonies and the dissonance between the two. It means inviting them, with both conviction and humility, to decide how their own story is going to be shaped by this truth. In this volume, he reflects on the practice of speaking about God, faith, the Bible, discipleship, resurrection, salvation, politics and truth, and on preaching that resonates in particular contexts. It is a book to encourage and give confidence to all preachers, and preachers in training.
