Finding Voice to Give God Praise: Essays in the Many Languages of the Liturgy

Overview

In this collection of essays, outstanding scholars and pastors reflect on the many "languages" of the liturgy - the aural, spatial, temporal, kinetic, and iconic - which blend together into a single voice, a single act of praise. Exploring these many languages, understanding them, teaching about them, fine-tuning them - such has been the preoccupation and the passion of Gilbert Ostdiek, O.F.M., the man whom this book honors.
