Liturgy and theology
I've been rather busy this weekend, especially yesterday with my brother-in-law's confirmation into the Landeskirche. The Germans take conformation very seriously – an all day celebration. During the festivities I managed to start John E. Colwell's new book, The Rhythm of Doctrine. And I am really excited about this one, so far. Colwell speaks from my heart. He structures a systematic theology around the liturgical year, bringing theology back home to its doxological roots. If God is known in worship and prayer, why not speak theologically in light of the devotion of the church (he follows a version of the 'daily office': Celebrating Common Prayer)? I suspect many of my readers will love this book.
