The Making of Christians and the Meaning of Worship

We are God’s art, and we might view the place where Christians gather as God’s studio. This is a work of liturgical theology—showing the meaning of worship as the making of Christians. The question of who we are relates to the vision of what we believe God is calling us to be. Christopher Irvine weaves artists and poets’ works into his thesis that God forms Christians through worship and the sacraments. Through sculpture and poetry, Rodin and Rilke have made an inner reality present. During liturgy, God brings forth the reality of Christ within us. It is in worship, Irvine writes, that God shapes Christians more into the likeness of Christ. Understanding ritual prayer as a time of formation, Irvine writes, has implications for the design of sacred spaces.

Christopher Irvine, an Anglican priest, teaches art and theology at the University of Leeds as well as liturgy and spirituality at the College of the Resurrection in Mirfield, England.
