The God We Worship: A Liturgical Theology
Dr. Nicholas Wolterstorff, Yale University
1-7 October 2013
Christian theology comes in many different configurations. In these lectures, Nicholas Wolterstorff will make explicit the understanding of God that is implicit in Christian liturgy, then articulate that understanding. In preparation for constructive project, Wolterstorff will discuss the nature of liturgy in general, and of Christian liturgy in particular, and explain what it is to make explicit what is implicit.
