Summary

"Worship and Ministry" concerns both the centres and cutting-edges of contemporary thinking about Christian worship. Whilst focusing on key elements in liturgical theology, its intersections with feminist and post-colonial perspectives also push at boundaries. Exploring aspects of baptism, eucharist, mission, justice, space, embodiment and formation, the collection contributes to reflection on worship in Australian contexts, and serves to make connection with the wide ecumenical world.
