In God against Religion Matthew Myer Boulton outlines a Christian theology that takes worship as its basic framework, considering worship as the occasion of not only an approach toward God in piety but also a separation from God in sin.Drawing on the thought of Martin Luther, John Calvin, and especially Karl Barth, Boulton rethinks the broadest themes of Christian theology in terms of Christian worship. He offers three groundbreaking thoughts: that the catastrophe of sin is liturgy's original and continual work, that the miracle of reconciliation is liturgy's decisive transformation in Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, and that the glory of redemption is and will be liturgy's end.A fascinating systematic, liturgical theology in the Reformed tradition, God against Religion will lead scholars, pastors, and anyone interested in thinking about Christian theology and Christian worship in fresh, critical, challenging directions.
