Liturgy, Time, and the Politics of Redemption

  • By Randi Rashkover
  • By C. C. Pecknold
When we think about the intersection of religion and politics, few people think of liturgy. Yet it is the contention of many theologians that our liturgical texts and rituals have important implications for our public life together. The latest volume in the Radical Traditions series, Liturgy, Time, and the Politics of Redemption advances a timely conversation about the place of religious reasoning in public discourse by attending to the way the scriptures are liturgically performed in Jewish and Christian communities. It includes diverse examinations of liturgy, from Peter Ochs's contention that reciting Jewish Morning Prayer can reorient our view of the world to Oliver Davies's illumination of the silence of the cross through two Russian words for silence. Of interest to theologians, philosophers, and clergy, Liturgy, Time, and the Politics of Redemption brings Jewish and Christian thinkers into conversation, showing parallels in these traditions' liturgical reasoning and opening new possibilities for Jewish-Christian relations.
