Liturgy and the Moral Self seeks to honor Saliers by responding to his prophetic and prescriptive invitation to theological work that is framed in terms of the doubleĀ–focus of Liturgy - the glorification of God and the sanctification of [humanity]."

Thematically grouped, this symposium engages a variety of theological disciplines in the effort to understand and enVision how liturgy, spirituality, and aesthetics entail practices that enable people to develop into active Christians worthy of the Gospel. Saliers' essay and its argument guide the symposium in exploring several of its aspects from a diversity of perspectives (theological disciplines, denominations, genders, generations).
