In the summer of 2002 a conference in Rome met to look at liturgical renewal and this book is the result. Cardinal Danneels set the tone of the conference and thus of the book. After evaluating the liturgical reforms of Vatican II, he tackles the problem of incomprehensibility in a world whose symbolic system has been lost. Includes a international scholars such as Timothy Radcliffe OP, Robert F. Taft SJ, Peter C. Phan, Francisco F. Claver SJ and is edited by Keith Pecklers SJ. An Anglican perspective is contributed by Canon Donald Gray. 'Liturgy in a Post-Modern World' will be essential reading for anyone concerned with the future of liturgy.
