by Paul V. Martshall,Dom Gregory Dix




The acquisition of the A & C Black theology list brings major Biblical commentaries and some of contemporary theology's most distinguished scholars to Continuum's already outstanding list. Continuum plans to build on the A & C Black list and its Continuum, Chapman, and Mowbray religious book programs to further expand its leading position in religious publishing.

Dom Gregory Dix's classic account of the development of the Eucharistic rite continues to be the authoritative work on the subject. He presents his massive scholarship in lively and nontechnical language for all who wish to understand their worship in terms of the framework from which it has evolved. He demonstrates the creative force of Christianity over the centuries through liturgy and the societies it has molded.

Very Old Chap
A classic. Read this book years ago but lost it in the shuffle. Wanted to read again. Very detailed.
Majin
dated by new information.
Ericaz
This is a book full of detailed research on how the church's liturgies formed and took "shape". From the first century churches to the 20th, it is full of useful information and helps us see that liturgical forms and shapes have only one purpose, to bring us into anamesis with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
SoSok
A classic and influential exposition of the Christian Liturgy
Nea
A classic, and with good reason!

Mikarr
