Liturgical texts which are repeated week after week by hundreds of thousands of people are an effective starting-point for exploring deep matters of faith, because of their rich theological content, the connections that can be made with their themes, and (for many people) their familiarity. An altogether powerful combination which is explored in this new volume in the Archbishop of York's occasional series, which was begun by Paula Gooder's The Meaning is in the Waiting, and which aims to lay a foundation for a fuller understanding and a more mature, informed faith and spirituality. Assuming no specialist knowledge but convinced that a good theological understanding is within everyone's grasp, Paul Ferguson takes often repeated words from the Eucharist, morning and evening prayer, and the baptism, marriage and funeral rites to explore core Christian belief. Ideal for confirmation courses, study groups and individual reading, this will take readers to new places of understanding via familiar, loved texts.
