Publisher's Description

The church's development and use of sacraments has evolved in many ways from the days of the early church to the present. This sourcebook provides key theological texts that played a role in those movements. Johnson traces the history and theology of individual sacraments along with their liturgical context in the church's worship. He includes materials previously developed in James F. White's classic collection, Documents of Christian Worship: Descriptive and Interpretive Sources (Westminster John Knox Press, 1992), and supplements these to provide a wide range of indispensible materials. He also contributes helpful background notes to give the reader the full breadth and depth of the church's thought on these important topics. This book will be of great value to those studying the history of Christian worship and the development of the sacraments.

Editorial Reviews

"Students and teachers of the history of Christian worship alike will have occasion to be grateful to Maxwell Johnson for assembling this magnificent and wide-ranging collection of extracts from primary sources, many otherwise not easy to obtain and some translated into English for the first time. It should have pride of place as a reference work on their bookshelves for very many years to come." Paul F. Bradshaw, Professor of Liturgy, University of Notre Dame


"Johnson invites the reader to explore this rich heritage of Orthodox, Catholic, and Protestant liturgical traditions. Particularly valuable in this collection are contributions by contemporary liturgical theologians offering new perspectives on the worship praxis of the churches. Sacraments and Worship should be on the desk of every scholar, pastor and church leader who is committed to effective, faithful, and ecumenically-aware worship today." Karen Westerfield Tucker, Professor of Worship, Boston University
