Louis Weil looks back on his work shaping the liturgical life of the Episcopal Church through his involvement with the development of The 1979 Book of Common Prayer and looks forward to the future of the church and its liturgical life. Through stories and first-person anecdotes, Weil does narrative theology as only he can. Although most points of reference are to the 1979 BCP, the book is aiming at a more fundamental levelnot just Episcopal or even Anglican liturgy, but liturgical rites as such: how do they do what they do?or NOT do when they are done badly! Liturgical Sense is two dimensional: both the common sense of liturgical rites and also their aesthetic sense. It is Dr. Weils contention that in American culture we have an inherent inability to think symbolically. Dr. Weil seeks to encourage a return to liturgical sense across the church.
