Product Description

For decades, Gail Ramshaw has lent her liturgical and theological creativity to the church's life in worship. Her past-presidency of the North American Academy of Liturgy is a signal of her gravitas in the academy, not to mention the more than two dozen books she has produced. For the churches—and not only her own Evangelical Lutheran Church in America—she has, internationally and ecumenically, and in part through active involvement in the World Council of Churches (WCC), had her work included in the ritual books of many traditions around the world.

Here, in a fitting recognition of a life of scholarship and reflection, is an esteemed collection of writing by liturgical and homiletical scholars honoring and engaging with Gail Ramshaw's work and extending it further to new questions, contexts, and concerns.

The volume is organized around the key themes of Ramshaw's work: lectionary patterns, prayer forms, and theological horizons.

Editorial Reviews

This collection honors in beautiful ways the things Gail Ramshaw cares about in her scholarship: an expansive language of liturgy, myth and metaphor that delve into divine mystery, a sacramental theology that cares about the earth. --Andrea Bieler, professor of practical theology, University of Basel (Switzerland), and author of The Eucharist: Bodies, Bread, and Resurrection

Words matter and words have power. Gail Ramshaw has dedicated her life's vocation to putting into words the wit, wonder, and wisdom of God. Through her work, we are invited into a treasury of riches--lectionary, liturgy, prayer, and praise--all expressing the beauty of the divine mystery. Join in these conversations and see how Ramshaw's treasury of riches can also shape your life. --The Rev. Kevin L. Strickland, bishop, Southeastern Synod, ELCA
