  8. Add to the Paul F. Bradshaw resources

    His Two Ways of Praying ISBN-13: 978-1878009593 is one of the best books for understanding the how and why of liturgical prayer - especially for those from non-liturgical traditions.

  9. Collection by Gordon W. Lathrop

    One of the major Lutheran liturgists of our time

    Essential reading for everyone:

    - Holy Things: A Liturgical Theology
    - Holy Ground: A Liturgical Cosmology
    - Holy People: A Liturgical Ecclesiology

    More Bible oriented:

    - The Four Gospels on Sunday: The New Testament and the Reform of Christian Worship
    - Advent/Christmas (Aids for Interpreting the Lessons of the Church Year: Proclamation 4, Series B)

    Liturgical history:

    - Christian Worship in East and West: A Study Guide to Liturgical History (with Herman A. J. Wegman)

    The last book is another that would help with the balance of offerings.

  11. Method in Theology by Bernard Lonergan

    We have little on the "how to do" theology front. Anything by Lonergan is worth adding to Logos/Verbum but this would also help fill a gap.

  20. The Mass Explained for Kids

    My wife worked on this book for the Daughters of St Paul after the introduction of the new Missal. EAN 9780819848857
    ISBN 0819848859. It's short, thrifty and although it's targeted for children it has explanations that LOTS of adults have found very useful.
