Many theologians contend that liturgical texts and rituals have important implications for our public life together. Liturgy, Time, and the Politics of Redemption advances a timely conversation about the place of "religious reasoning" in public discourse by attending to the way the scriptures are liturgically performed in Jewish and Christian communities. It includes diverse examinations of liturgy--of interest to theologians, philosophers, and clergy--and brings Jewish and Christian thinkers into conversation, showing parallels in these traditions' liturgical reasoning and opening new possibilities for Jewish-Christian relations.ContentsAcknowledgmentsIntroduction: The Future of the Word and the Liturgical TurnRandi RashkoverPART I: LITURGICAL ACTIONA Christian Act: Politics and Liturgical PracticeGraham WardMorning Prayer as Redemptive ThinkingPeter OchsPART II: LITURGICAL TIMEFiguring Time: Providence and PoliticsScott Bader-SayeRosenzweig's Liturgical Reasoning as Response to Augustine's Temporal AporiasSteven KepnesPART III: LITURGICAL SCROLLINGEternity in History: Rolling the ScrollRobert GibbsHoly Seeds: The Trisagion and the Liturgical Untilling of TimeBen QuashPART IV: LITURGICAL IMPROVISATIONFor Such a Time as This: Esther and the Practices of ImprovisationSamuel WellsThe Ritual Is Not the Hunt: The Seven Wedding Blessings, Redemption, and Jewish Ritual as FantasyShaul MagidPART V: LITURGICAL SILENCECosmic Speech and the Liturgy of SilenceOliver DaviesCONCLUSIONLiturgy, Time, and the Politics of Redemption: Concluding Unscientific PostscriptC.
