White presents a very comprehensive overview of worship from the early church to today in this book. It is especially helpful for those without a strong background in liturgy. White presents the arguments of the Reformation according to Luther, Calvin, and Zwingli, as well as following the role of the sacraments in the chruch from its conception. I recommend this book as a good starting point for those interested in a historical overview of Christian worship.
