I am glad to announce that after several years of research, writing, editing, and waiting, my doctoral dissertation, Church, World, and Kingdom: The Eucharistic Foundation of Alexander Schmemann's Pastoral Theology will be published this coming Fall by Hillenbrand Books, a division of Liturgical Training Publications.
While many students and scholars have studied Schmemann's liturgical theology, my book is the first to investigate his thoughts and ideas on the interconnectedness of liturgy and pastoral care.
Father Alexander's writings contain much food for thought for priests, lay leaders, and teachers regarding the pastoral life, ministry, and our common vocation to offer our prayer and praise to God, which is fulfilled in the Eucharistic celebration.
In the coming months I will share more information about the book, but for now, I just wanted to put the word out.
Publication details regarding Church, World, and Kingdom will be forthcoming.
