D 9 What Does Liturgy Have to Do with Doctrine?


Liturgy and doctrine have been intertwined from the very earliest points of the Christian church. Yet sometimes they are perceived as something for theologians and clergy to concern themselves with, but of little concern to the majority of churchgoers.

This study argues that regardless of how much (or little) academic theology we have read, we cannot avoid engaging with doctrine in the life of the church. And because the liturgies of the church play a crucial role in shaping the life of those who participate in them, if we care about doctrine, we must also care about how doctrine and liturgy interact.
