Completes his trilogy! "The worshipper is called to walk on 'holy ground,' through the central symbols of the Christian liturgy: bath, word, prayer, and table. In doing so, these liturgical symbols break open, revalue, and welcome the ordinary and everyday as the holy ground it truly is,"---Living Church. 250 pages, softcover. Fortress.

This latest work from leading liturgical theologian Gordon Lathrop explores the extent to which the central symbols and interactions of Christian liturgy yield, for their participants, a new proposal for their understanding and experience of the world. In the process, it considers various kinds of world-making, the diverse maps, and the differing senses of "cosmology" in which we all live. Finally, the book examines how certain liturgical reforms can contribute to a refreshed sense of ecological ethics-to a Christian sense of the holiness of the earth itself.
