Publisher's Description

The Church of Sweden is the largest Lutheran church body in the world, with 6.5 million members that represent about 70% of the Swedish population. The Meaning of Christian Liturgy illuminates and explains the changes that have occurred in the liturgy of the Church of Sweden from 1980 to 2000. In the process, this volume asks a number of questions of immense importance not only within Sweden but also for Christian churches in the English-speaking world, including:
  • How does participation in a liturgy make clear what "church" is about?
  • What does liturgical participation say about who or what God is and about the community's encounter with God?
  • How have churches lived with the changes and renewals introduced in the twentieth century?
  • How does the church building shape worshipers' ideas of God and of church?
