For John Wesley worship and liturgy (the “work of the people” in worship) were serious matters. They were central cords of the webof “means of grace” through which God graciously renewed believers in the image of Christ. Wesley would have welcomed the thoughtful attention directed to these matters in this collection. May they serve to enliven and enrich the practice of worship amongall Wesley’s ecclesial descendants.

This collection of essays is a gem. Its contributors traverse various dimensions of orthopraxy and sacramental action, and illuminatethese with great acuity and sensitivity to a number of important philosophical concerns. I have no doubt that anyone who wishesto critically and openheartedly reflect on the nature and significanceof our liturgies will find themselves deeply enriched by the intellectual journey that this book offers.
