Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Theology (UK)
"A concise and useful introduction to the subject of roots of Christian worship."

Worship Leader
"This book proves to be pointed and helpful in coming to a greater understanding and appreciation of the origins of Christian worship. I recommend it especially to those wanting to better understand worship's roots."

Toronto Journal of Theology
"In a manner that is both innovative and challenging, Hurtado seeks to locate early Christian theology within the context of early Christian worship (rather than the other way around), comparing Christian practices described in the New Testament with alternative religious expressions from the contemporary Mediterranean world. . . As a rich introduction to Christian worship in its social context, Hurtado's praxis-oriented approach bears much fruit, including its ability to suggest so many promising avenues for further research and debate."

Anglican Theological Review
"This brief, scholarly, and readable book considers -- as its subtitle accurately puts it -- the context and character of early Christian devotion. Larry Hurtado, a leading scholar of evangelical background, seeks to describe the setting in which the earliest Christian worship arose and certain of its features, and then to reflect on issues for contemporary Christian worship."

Publishers Weekly
"Glory be to God for fluttering wings,/ for chickadees and butterflies/ that dot the skies/ like words,/ dragonflies and hummingbirds." So begins Carlstrom's (the Jesse Bear books) nondenominational song of praise, which never falters in its timing and flow. Jenkins's (I Wanted to Know All About God) inventively conceived illustrations, meanwhile, create a narrative that easily engages readers. Against a buttery gold background, a thick, red, wavy brush stroke begins on the title page and ends on the back cover. On that red wave travels an extravagantly colorful parade of animals: a pink giraffe, blue elephants, a green zebra. An early spread introduces a girl in a black leotard, first seen creating her own pictures. In graceful transitions, she dons varying costumes butterfly, ladybug, lion and dances beside the creatures. Swept along by the music of the song, readers will find a contagious energy in these exultant pages. "All creatures large,/ all creatures small,/ that dance and leap/ and curl and crawl,/ the wild, the tame / All creatures by their being/ praise their Creator's name." The creators of this illustrated hymn provide a joyful opportunity for their readers to participate in praising God's name as well. Ages 3-8. (Sept.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
Brief, poetic prose calls for Glory to God for the many wonderful creatures of earth; those that fly, those that swim, insects, animals wild and domestic, for "all creatures by their being praise their Creator's name." The inspirational message is reinforced by a wide red brush stroke sweeping across the pages, acting as a sort of path for the parade of creatures Jenkins has painted in oil on canvas. While recognizable, they are depicted frequently in unnatural colors and not to scale. On a few pages a young girl in a black leotard, the only human, acts as a sort of guide, assuming postures, masks or other appropriate paraphernalia. Her lively behavior adds to the upbeat sensibilities of text and visuals. 2001, Eerdmans Books for Young Readers, $17.00. Ages 4 to 8. Reviewer: Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Carlstrom explains how fish, fowl, and furry creatures all celebrate God in unique ways. Beetles dance, the untamed roar their praise, and some beasts "sing to God in silence." Jenkins's double-page spreads that arc animals against a brilliant band of red paint are a jolly match for the author's blissful poem of thanksgiving. A realistically painted, pony-tailed girl occasionally counterpoints the flow of yellow toads, blue panthers, and pink giraffes that honor the Creator "by their being." This unusual prayer will please animal fans, and serves as a gentle reminder of how good it feels to be alive.-Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
