Andy Langford in the book Transitions In Worship, Moving From Traditional To Contemporary disputes .

Andy Langford in the book Transitions In Worship, Moving From Traditional To Contemporary disputes that notion. He says: Despite some pleas to the contrary, the Bible has never dictated only one way to worship.

In Transitions in Worship, Andy Langford surveys where worship has been, where it is now, and where it might be going, while also providing meaningful advice and help for moving worship from predictable and rote to enriching and engaging

In Transitions in Worship, Andy Langford surveys where worship has been, where it is now, and where it might be going, while also providing meaningful advice and help for moving worship from predictable and rote to enriching and engaging. Congregations across North America face a profoundly unchristian culture. Yet, this culture still seeks a foundation that the church alone can provide. Written for pastors, musicians, and other worship leaders, Transitions in Worship provides a clear blueprint for laying a worship base that is relevant and responsive to the people of today.

Contemporary worship is a form of Christian worship that emerged within Western evangelical Protestantism in the 20th century. Contemporary worship is generally characterised by the use of contemporary worship music in an informal setting.
