Overview

" . . . not a seminary text book . . . (but) an excellent book which is appropriate for lay preacher preparation, (church) officer training, group study and individual reading . . . a point of view which is highly relevant in today's cafeteria worship".

Rev. John B. Rogers, Jr. - Montreat, NC

" . . . some really good stuff here. Written to the level of the person who sits in the pew each Sunday, this book speaks to a generation that may rightfully fear for their worship tradition".

Rev. Spencer Murray - Shreveport, LA

"From Pentecostal to Episcopalian" raises issues which should be of interest to all Christians regardless of worship tradition . . . a useful study guide appropriate for all lay persons".

Rev. John Albright - Winnsboro, LA

It is a long road which separates Pentecostals from Episcopalians. Yet both denominations - and all the churches in between - claimallegiance to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. The worship styles cover the gamut from the free wheeling, spontaneous worship of the "low churches" to the set order of worship of the "high churches" dating back for centuries. All these churches, in some fashion or the other, claim kinship to American Protestantism.

Why do Baptist in every worship service extend an invitation to come "and be saved'? Why do Presbyterians and Lutherans seem so staid and rigid? Why do
Methodist appeal to "what's in your heart" and why do Episcopalians seem so much like the Catholics? Why do Pentecostals and non-denominational churches reject the worship traditions of the ancient church?

In From Pentecostal to Episcopalian, the author traces the development of worship and attempts to provide answers as to why Christianity seems more divided than ever before.
