As a result, traditional words such as Lord, kingdom, and kingship have been replaced, yet their usual replacements -- sovereign, realm, and reign -- retain the language of feudal monarchy. In The Politics of Worship, William Johnson Everett closely examines the political theology of worship and proposes a ritual practice that strives to be consistent with a Christian ethic of inclusiveness and mutuality.

It is this practice that will help move Christian worship beyond the old language and symbols -- however disguised -- and into a new, truly inclusive theological paradigm.
