Liturgical Inculturation: Sacramentals, Religiosity, and Catechesis.

I'd put my money on Benedictine Father Anscar J. Chupungo knowing as much about inculturation as just about anybody. This scholarly monk commutes between the Philippines, where he is director of the Paul VI Institute of Liturgy, and Rome, where he teaches at the Pontifical Liturgical Institute.

In Liturgical Inculturation: Sacramentals, Religiosity, and Catechesis (Liturgical Press, 174 pages, $14.95 paperback), he first reviews the different technical terms that express the relationship between liturgy and culture before moving on to what the title promises. Chupungo admits that his study is in an area filled with uncertainties, which makes it the more exciting and important. His clarity of thinking makes for enjoyable reading.
