Lively Oracles of God

Perspectives on the Bible and Liturgy
  • By Bridget R. Nichols, Gordon Jeanes
Product Description

This book reexamines what we often take for granted: how Scripture is presented to worshipers; how it is heard, especially by those with little experience of the life of the church; Scripture's role in mediating the great narratives of incarnation and redemption at the high points of the year; where Scripture meets people in ritual transition; how the Bible itself provides the language of much public prayer. Contributors also consider how the relationship between Scripture and liturgy is tested by new priorities-the climate crisis, the inclusion and protection of children, the recognition and honoring of those who find themselves on the margins of the church, and the significance of gender and identity in all areas of the church's life. This book does not offer definitive statements. It is an invitation to a wide audience to engage in new conversations with their practice of worship.

Contributors include:

  • John Baldovin, SJ
  • Normand Bonneau, OMI
  • Stephen Burns
  • Cally Hammond
  • Christopher Irvine
  • David Kennedy
  • Lizette Larson-Miller
  • Ann Loades, CBE
