Liturgy and Apocalypse

The Rev Professor Thomas F Torrance, MBE, BD, D Theol, of the University of Edinburgh

This paper takes up the theme of a paper in the previous issue of the journal when Stuart Louden discussed the continuing role of the Church Service Society, with especial reference to the need for the Society to find its way back into the mainstream of the Church’s life and allow invigorated theology to result in reinvigorated liturgy. The paper examines the Apocalypse (Book of Revelation) to explore the place of the Ascension of Christ and his Second Advent in the worship of the New Testament Church, and draws out some of the theological implications of that for the liturgical movement today.
