"Zabriskie Lectures 1964".
"These lectures were delivered in the Protestant Episcopal Seminary, Alexandria, Virginia, in April 1964 at the invitation of the Dean, the Very Reverend Jesse Trotter, and are printed in more or less the form in which I gave them". -- Foreword.
"It is my intention to speak first about the nature of Christian liturgy and then to go in the second lecture to consider what must be done to show that liturgy is relevant to our contemporary world. In the third lecture I wish to examine the Report of the Committee on the Prayer Book in the 1958 Lambeth Conference, the Report on Worship accepted by the Fourth World Conference on Faith and Order held in Montreal in July 1963, and the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy promulgated by the Vatican Ecumenical Council on 4 December 1963. I think that this examination shows a very great measure of agreement among all Christian people on the purpose and nature of the liturgy. ... In my fourth lecture I hope to show how this agreement and these convictions which are now so widely held have been embodied in an actual eucharistic rite. Here I want to explain the Liturgy for Africa, with a good many glances at the Liturgy of the Church of South Africa." -- p. 2.
