Maxwell Johnson has made multiple contributions to our understanding of liturgical history and liturgical theology. This volume honors his work by offering a set of important essays by respected scholars that bridge the distance between scholarship and praxis, to be accessible and relevant to both pastoral ministers and academic theologians. It is organized according to three categories: liturgical year, Christian initiation, and Eucharist. Within these categories, the contributors are especially attentive to three important aspects of liturgical history:     the role that important figures in liturgical history played as liturgical pastors     how liturgical history has been used in shaping contemporary liturgical rites and prayers     how liturgical history informs contemporary understandings and beliefs Ultimately, the book pays tribute to Johnson's contributions to the life of the church by exploring ways that the study of liturgical history might help the church remain faithful to God and to the sacramental worldview that continues to define and characterize classic Christianity. Contributors include:     Stefanos Alexopoulos     Paul F. Bradshaw     Michael Daniel Findikyan     Ruth Langer     Lizette Larson-Miller     Christian McConnell     Anne McGowan     David A. Pitt     Walter D. Ray     Nicholas V. Russo     Bryan D. Spinks     Robert F. Taft, SJ     Jeffrey A. Truscott     Gabriele Winkler
