FREE shipping on qualifying offers. There a reason that this book is considered the leading textbook on Christian worship in English-speaking North America. Dr. White is extremely articulate in explaining the comprehensive scope of Christian worship, across the centuries and across denominational lines. Those from a "free church" tradition (pentecostal and most baptists) need to keep in mind that their tradition is only a small and relatively recent part of denominational history.

Revised and Expanded. Know Your Bible: All 66 Books Explained and Applied.

I recommend this book for anyone interested in Christian worship, whether in its history, its theology, or its practice.

The result is a very full and quite insight James F. White draws upon the full range of liturgical and ritual practices of Christians for this combined academic introduction and pastoral and theological reflection upon Christian worship. I recommend this book for anyone interested in Christian worship, whether in its history, its theology, or its practice.

This revision keeps pace with the latest scholarship and includes more maps, tables, woodcuts, and photographs.

Professor White begins with a critical analysis of contemporary concepts of Protestant worship and then defines the liturgical factors in church design. This section indicates the tremendous variety of possibilities open to the church builder, many of which have been ignored too long. A final chapter deals with emotive factors - all vitally relevant to the architect: choir, liturgical art, and style.

Not bad. Oversimplifies early Christian worship history, ignoring its Jewish roots by claiming that worship only began to be organized around the fourth century, when in fact it had a rich cultural heritage from Old Testament liturgy, which due to antisemitism was largely discarded. It quickly skipped by the Quartodeciman offense against Jewish and other eastern Christians (including Polycarp the disciple of John) who wished to retain a Christian interpretation of the Jewish calendar and its annual liturgy from Leviticus 23. It also barely acknowledged the retention by the Christian Church of two of the three worship seasons from the Old Testament: Passover/Easter and Pentecost, while completely ignoring the almost completely discarded fall worship calendar and their interesting connection to Christmas and the Incarnation.

There a reason that this book is considered the leading textbook on Christian worship in English-speaking North America. Dr. White is extremely articulate in explaining the comprehensive scope of Christian worship, across the centuries and across denominational lines. Those from a "free church" tradition (pentecostal and most baptists) need to keep in mind that their tradition is only a small and relatively recent part of denominational history. Also influencing his perspective is the fact that Dr. White taught at Notre Dame, a Catholic University, Southern Methodist University, and Drew University, with Wesleyan roots. Much of the value of this book is exposure to other denominational traditions, making the reader more "kingdom-minded."

In my opinion, the best thing about this book is Dr. White's ability to succinctly communicate a huge amount of information, with an economy of words, and without all the "fluff" that so many writers on worship feel obligated to use. It is an extremely readable and most valuable resource.

It waa a pretty cool read. Very good for familiarising people (especially ministers) with the history and thought of why Christian worship is the way it is today. It did vear away from the worship and get a little heavy on the history and background info for me...i was definitely more interested in the specifics of worship. Overall I would say that this book was good. It preps you and helps you feel somewhat knowledgeable for other readings on tye topic of Christian worship.

I have the Kindle version of this book so I must start with an issue with the Kindle version which is that the diagrams are impossible to look at. As they are not oriented for the Kindle. If you turn the Kindle the diagram moves so you can't view them. The book itself started slow but does cover the topic and I find the reading moved a bit faster as I read. The author is a bit "wordy". Overall though a good resource.

I needed more information for a class paper on worship and this book provided it. I also enjoyed the readability of this book, it was not like a lot of theological books where you need a dictionary to understand what you just read. Should the opportunity arise to teach on worship this is one of the books I will use.
