For the Life of the World: Sacraments and Orthodoxy by Alexander Schmemann
  • Description
  • Reviews

In For the Life of the World Alexander Schmemann suggests an approach to the world and life within it, which stems from the liturgical experience of the Orthodox Church. He understands issues such as secularism and Christian culture from the perspective of the unbroken experience of the Church, as revealed and communicated in her worship, in her liturgy — the sacrament of the world, the sacrament of the Kingdom.

Fr. Schmemann deals with the issues of "secularism" and Christian culture, viewing them from the perspective of the Church, as revealed and communicated in its worship and liturgy. A readable presentation of a worldview that will leave one gasping for more. A must have book for any library. "...a powerful, articulate and indeed, creative essay in sacramental theology."—Thomas Merton
