In this doctrine of church services, Michael Meyer-Blanck deals with the theory of the church service (liturgics) as well as the theory of the sermon (homiletics). For the first time, he describes the two disciplines, which are related to the church service, together and to the extent that this is possible he links them to one another in the current discussions on this subject. The dialogue with Catholic liturgics is of particular significance.
In this doctrine of church services, Michael Meyer-Blanck deals with the theory of the church service (liturgics) as well as the theory of the sermon (homiletics). For the first time, he describes the two disciplines, which are related to the church service, together and to the extent that this is possible he links them to one another in the current discussions on this subject. The dialogue with Catholic liturgics is of particular significance. The textbook is based on the basic insight that the Protestant church service is to be regarded as the communication and the portrayal of the Gospel in a ritual and rhetorical form. The book contains seven chapters: 1. Prolegomena to the doctrine of the church service, 2. Doctrine of the church service from a systematic, 3. historical, 4. empirical, 5. comparative ecumenical, 6. aesthetic perspective, and 7. from the perspective of the guiding principle.
