The Unchanging Feast
The Nature and Basis of Lutheran Worship

Dr. Al Barry, past-president of the Lutheran Church– Missouri Synod, wrote this wonderful little book. It’s a brief look at the history and form of worship down through the ages, Luther’s reforms, and where liturgical worship finds itself in our fast-changing times today.

As Dr. Barry notes, “It lifts the spirit and draws one into the very presence of God who wishes to be with us in Word and Sacrament. It draws us away from the mundane, hum-drum hype and hoopla of Madison Avenue and Hollywood Boulevard and into the ‘Holy of Holies’ of the Lord’s presence where we receive forgiveness through the Word and Sacraments.”
