Liturgy has lost its living roots in the soil of the world and become a pot-plant in the sanctuary of the Church, so claimed John ‘Honest to God’ Robinson 50 years ago. Now that claim is being repeated by Australian liturgist and religious naturalist Rex A. E. Hunt. In this eagerly awaited collection of reflective chapters and liturgical resources, Rex Hunt offers broad insights into the shaping of progressive liturgy and worship. Drawing on more than forty years of ordained ministry, he peels back some of the traditions behind Liturgy, Holy Communion, Baptism, the Lord’s Prayer, and Preaching, and suggests when these are and continue to be, reshaped and reconstructed by both progressive theology and critical biblical studies. Then he offers a wide collection of actual liturgies and liturgical resources. Progressive orthopraxy rather than traditional orthodoxy!
