For the Life of the World: Sacraments and Orthodoxy
Schmemann, Alexander,For the Life of the World: Sacraments and Orthodoxy, SVS Press.
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.
