Eucharist Shaping and Hebert’s Liturgy and Society : Church, Mission and Personhood (Hardcover)
About this item
The contemporary Church of England is wrestling with issues around the relationship between its worship and mission and relating both to wider society. Much of this hinges on an understanding of the nature of the Church. Gabriel Hebertâ€™s seminal book Liturgy and Society (1935) took as its subtitle, â€˜The Function of the Church in the Modern Worldâ€™. For many this book inspired engagement with Eucharistic worship, with new patterns emerging, paving the way for further liturgical reform in the second half of the twentieth century. Eucharist Shaping and Hebertâ€™s Liturgy and Society re-examines Hebertâ€™s work, doing so uniquely in the light of the current dialogue about Church, liturgy and mission. Andrew Bishop argues that Hebertâ€™s contribution has been overlooked latterly and that a re-appreciation opens up fruitful ways of thinking and acting, making this book a distinctive contribution to a lively debate. If the options are reaction or novelty, Eucharist Shaping and Hebertâ€™s Liturgy and Society shows how Hebertâ€™s thinking subtly undermines both.
