Product Description

If interreligious dialogue is to bear fruit-the fruit of mutual understanding, respect, and peace-it needs to be rooted in the specific spiritual space or milieu of each religious tradition. For Christians, that milieu is "Jesus space," a space shaped by faith in the paschal mysteries and nurtured by prayer, study, and love. With Jesus space as his starting point Benoit Standaert invites us to join him as he visits different religious spaces-those of Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, and agnostics. If we are willing to enter into and even dwell for a time in another spiritual space, we will be able to return to the space we call home, enriched by the gifts we have received and prepared to live in peace with those who dwell in a spiritual space that is very different from our own. Paperback.

Publisher's Description

The publication of the US Bishops' document on music in the liturgy, Sing to the Lord (2007), has prompted Edward Foley to review the overall contribution of the Bishops to liturgical music since Vatican Council II. He explores the history and content of the US Bishops ' three previous statements on music in worship:

    The Place of Music in Eucharistic Celebrations Music in Catholic Worship Liturgical Music Today

    In tracing this history, Foley illuminates the stages that led to Sing to the Lord and compares this most fully developed document with its predecessors. This concise history and analysis 'illustrated with sets of comparative tales 'will be a valuable resource for those who study, prepare, and lead music in Catholic worship in the United States.

    Edward Foley, Capuchin, PhD, is Professor of Liturgy and Music, and founding Director of the Ecumenical Doctor of Ministry Program at Catholic Theological Union. He is author of From Age to Age: How Christians Have Celebrated the Eucharist (revised and expanded edition, Liturgical Press, 2008) and is coeditor of and contributor to A Commentary on the General Instruction of the Roman Missal (Liturgical Press, 2008).
