Overview

Few topics in the church today arouse more interest or debate than the issue of worship. Settling “the worship wars” will demand more than simply catering to the latest trends and satisfying personal preferences.

In this irenic new book, recognized experts offer worship leaders and those preparing for ministry a valuable resource for sorting through layers of tradition and creative innovation to unchanging biblical tenets that define three key components to authentic worship:

  • God as the object of our worship
  • Music as the expression of our worship
  • Symbols as the images of our worship

Contributors include Robert E. Webber, Timothy J. Ralston, Thomas M. Stallter, Timothy D. Sprankle, David P. Nelson, Ronald E. Manahan, Thomas F. Atchison, and Richard E. Averbeck.

“Both substantial and accessible. This book will surely engage not only the minds but the hearts of seminary students and pastors everywhere.”

—Barry Liesch
Author of The New Worship

“This scholarly work will help achieve armistice. . . . Bateman not only helps us think practically and culturally, but especially theologically.”
