"This book identifies seven essential themes of The Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, such as the Paschal Mystery and the liturgy as "source and summit" of church life. The book also explains and puts into context the new translation of the Mass. It critically evaluates the "reform of the reform" movement, and other groups that currently propose a radical revision of the church's current liturgy. It asks concrete, pastoral questions about where the church stands today with respect to the key elements of the Constitution. Finally, its annotated bibliography will appeal to a diverse readership by offering a variety of subjects, writing styles, and perspectives on the issues."--BOOK JACKET.Ferrone, Rita is the author of 'Liturgy Sacrosanctum Concilium', published 2007 under ISBN 9780809144723 and ISBN 0809144727.
