The Use of Symbols in Worship
Full Product Description
Never before has there been such scope for the use of symbols as can be found in the family of Common Worship services. Not simply visual aids, liturgical symbols are suggestive and evocative; they belong to a whole matrix of imagery in Scripture and in the prayer texts that accompany the ritual acts of worship.
Each chapter of Symbols and Worship provides theological and historical background to the symbols discussed (water, oil, light and incense), as well as practical guidance on the place and use of these symbols in the whole range of Common Worship services.
The Use of Symbols in Worship by Christopher Irvine was published by SPCK in September 2007 and is our 23653rd best seller. The ISBN for The Use of Symbols in Worship is 9780281058525.

The Use of Symbols in WorshipIan Gibson, via The Good Book Stall
The start of the film the Da Vinci Code has Professor Langdon explaining, to a rapt audience, the meaning and interpretation of symbols and he also mentions that sometimes symbols are misconstrued or misinterpreted and this can happen in worship activities as well. This informative guide, in the Alcuin Club series, leads us through the language of symbols in worship relating to their modern application and highlighting the historical background to the symbols we use and see in church regularly, not just as visual representations and icons but their deeper meaning in context. The use of water, oil, light, incense in regular worship, the effect of rings and flowers and wedding garments in pastoral occasions, the rites of passage and the special occasions of Holy Week and Easter, all discussed and placed into a readable and very useful little guide, which will help not only those who use the symbols regularly but as a study guide for those who wish to have an explanation.
