What does it mean to inculturate liturgy? Why is it necessary? What value does it hold for the people? Does it impact the church as a whole? What does the process of inculturation teach about liturgy? Bishop McDonald, as editor, has assembled a broad list of contributors who address the issues of liturgical inculturation from theological, scriptural, musical, spiritual, and pastoral perspectives in the context of the Native American community. The discussions are of value to the wider church as it looks forward to a new era.
