Ancient-Future Worship: Proclaiming and Enacting God's Narrative

With the many models of worship available, choosing a style to worship God can be a bit overwhelming. Is it better to go with traditional or contemporary models? Christians may find themselves asking how early believers worshiped and whether they can provide insight into how we should praise God today.
Rooted in historical models and patristic church studies, Ancient-Future Worship examines how early Christian worship models can be applied to the postmodern church. Pastors and church leaders, as well as younger evangelical and emerging church groups, will find this last book in the respected Ancient-Future series an invaluable resource for authentic worship.

Wow? This book gave me hope. I think Robert Webber is right on with his assessment of the benefits Ancient-Future worship. The telling of the story from beginning to end. from Eden until the second coming is what the world needs to hear every day. I am a Pastor and have been looking for ways to help the people thirst for more of God's story. This book gives you the basis on how to do that.
