Description
Summary:A church's liturgy is its ritualized system of worship, the services and patterns in which believers regularly participate. While the term often refers to a specific formal ritual like the Roman Catholic Mass, events surrounding major life events - birth, coming of age, marriage, death - are often celebrated through church liturgies. By documenting and analyzing Mormon liturgicalhistory, Jonathan Stapley is able to explore the nuances of Mormon belief and practice. More important, he can demonstrate that the Mormon ordering of heaven and earth is not a mere philosophical or theological exercise. 'The Power of Godliness' establishes histories for these unique liturgies and to provide interpretive frameworks for them
