Item description for Heaven on Earth: The Gifts of Christ in the Divine Service by Arthur A. Just, Jr....

The liturgy is not a style of worship. The liturgy is the substance of justification as it is brought through means. This book is an introduction to the liturgy and its importance. It takes the liturgy and makes it easy for the layperson to understand that the New Testament church service brings God's presence, in Jesus the Christ to the people of God who have been cleansed from their sins. This is a holy meeting made possible by the blood of Christ that cleanses the believer. This understanding of the church service helps one to understand that the church service is more than a meeting place; it is the manifestation of the New Testament church on earth as Christ calls His bride around Word and Sacraments. Heaven on Earth will deepen your understanding of the Divine Service and why it remains the Church's chief worship service.

Reviews - What do customers think about Heaven on Earth: The Gifts of Christ in the Divine Service?

Back to the Gift of Christ!  Mar 27, 2008
Dr. Just has been a significant servant in the Lutheran church for liturgical renewal. In the midst of the worship wars, he modified his approach to not being on the defensive, but going on the offensive to correct some misunderstandings.

He previously developed an excellent video series on this same topic, which he now in this work refines it even more and makes it even more layperson focused, as well as adding some other materials he had previously written as well as some new insights.

The title is most appropriately chosen, for it explains the Lutheran take on the subject: our worship is Biblical and apocalyptic. Christ invades earth from heaven in His presence in the holy means of grace. This historically is from earliest centuries of church through same major components now in Lutheran Divine Service: historic five-fold shape of Entrance, Word, Preparation, Sacrament, Distribution; surrounded by ordinaries, hymns; all this for Jesus to be present among us offering his gifts of life, salvation through forgiveness of sins.

There is excellent glossary and full resource of notes and bibliographic materials.

To be highly used and studied by the church catholic.
