Reviews

. . . the book stimulates the discerning liturgist to re-think liturgical practice in the light of emerging theological, sociological and anthropological issues. . . . It should be on readings lists for graduate/postgraduate students of liturgy as well as on the bookshelves of serious liturgists and pastoral ministers.Pacifica This book will appeal to a wide range of persons within both the Church and academy. It has implications within the Church not only for liturgy and worship, but also for Christian education and spiritual formation. The academy will also benefit from this insightful scholarship that refuses to separate theory from practice.Doxology One book could hardly make up for the long tradition of the Church that has tended to regard the human body negatively or even not to regard it all. Bodies of Worship is a giant millennium leap in the right direction! Each chapter in its two parts - theoretical and pastoral - opens up a new avenue for rethinking how we use our bodies in worship, how our bodies are truly 'sacramental' or visible sign through which we are led to the mystery and majesty of God. With all my body: THANK YOU.Joyce Ann Zimmerman, CPPS, Editor, Liturgical Ministry . . . an excellent contribution to a much neglected field of liturgical study and to the understanding of an essential aspect of Christian worship. This book is an admirable combination of theological and pastoral reflection.John F. Baldovin, SJ, Professor of Historical and Liturgical Theology, Weston Jesuit School of Theology, Cambridge, Massachusetts
