Imagining the Kingdom: How Worship Works
How does worship work? How exactly does liturgical formation shape us? In the second of Smith’s three-volume theology of culture, the author expands the analysis of cultural liturgies and Christian worship he developed in Desiring the Kingdom. He helps us understand and appreciate the bodily basis of habit formation and how liturgical formation–both “secular” and Christian–affects our fundamental orientation to the world. This has critical implications for how we think about Christian formation.
