Review:
.......'worship is entry. It is entry into something that is not primarily of our own making. Worship is entry into an action, into a company, into a reality that is on going and bigger than we are.í Pg 3
This is perhaps the authorís most succinct statement of her theme and she develops it in the early chapters of her book, but there does seem to then be a change of direction. She gives a detailed survey of liturgical history and rites, followed by some very perceptive accounts of examples of worship in contemporary churches which she has attended. She then tackles some of the controversial aspects of modern liturgical practice. Whether or not this makes a coherent whole is a matter for debate.
