Description

Worship in The United Church of Canada has received very little scholarly attention and liturgical analysis. Moreover, scholarship in 'liberal' liturgical traditions lacks sufficient methodologies to examine the complexity of this type of practice. This definitive study of the first four generations of baptismal liturgies of The United Church of Canada examines the group's history and theology, evolution and implications from 1925-1995.
