Overview

In recent decades, writers such as Stanley Hauerwas and William Willimon have emphasized the connections between Christian faith and practice as essential to the church's mission. Following similar lines, Recovering Mother Kirk makes the case for a liturgical variety of Reformed Christianity.

According to D. G. Hart, this liturgicalism is firmly rooted in the ministry of the church in her gathering for worship. He claims that any effort to understand Reformed doctrine, its worldview, or piety in isolation from the corporate church and public worship is inherently flawed.

This thought-provoking manifesto will be particularly useful to scholars, students, and pastors within the Presbyterian and Reformed tradition, but of interest to all who seek a greater appreciation of the relationship between doctrine and worship.
