Introduction to liturgical theology by Aleksandr Shmeman( Book )

The author has tried to define liturgical theology, noting especially its progress beyond liturgics, the study and comparison of texts, and showing how the dynamic realism of the Eucharistic liturgy has been often obscured in popular liturgical piety. These themes are developed in reference to the Ordo or shape of worship as it evolved in the Orthodox Church, from the very earliest years down to the 'crystallization' of worship in Byzantine Orthodoxy in the ninth-twelfth centuries

"In For the Life of the World Alexander Schmemann suggests an approach to the world and life within it, which stems from the liturgical experience of the Orthodox Church. He understands issues such as secularism and Christian culture from the perspective of the unbroken experience of the Church, as revealed and communicated in her worship, in her liturgy - the sacrament of the world, the sacrament of the Kingdom." -- Publisher's description

Though written by an Orthodox priest, this book does not seek to "preach" or "lecture" to other Christians.

The theme that links all the chapters is that of Eucharist, whereby the wholy world is regarded as a sacrament of communion with God
