SUMMARY á Worship by the Book Congregational leaders and seminary students a thought provoking biblical theology of worship followed by a look at how three very different traditions of churchmanship might move from this theological base to a better understanding of corporate worship Running the gamut from biblical theology to historical assessment all the way to sample service sheets Worship by the Book shows how local churches in diverse traditions can foster corporate worship that is God honoring Word revering heartfelt and historically and culturally informe. I simply couldn t put this book down Having a history in serving the church with music and having a mind bent towards management I found this book insightful and well organized to communicate what corporate worship should be for each congregation Most importantly this book addresses how the Bible is clear in certain things about worship and unclear about certain specifics for a corporate service Carson formed an excellent team to point to the history of the church their experience even failures and most importantly the Bible I recommend this book even for the layman for this book has caused me to see the corporate gathering itself as worshipful to God than before I read this bookSummary of each contributing author and it s impact on me not extensive1 DA Carson a comprehensive and exhaustive definition of the word worship2 Mark Ashton seeing God s Word as the spiritual force in any work man creates ex Cranmer s Common Book of Prayer3 Kent Hughes ensuring worship is a God centered b Christ centered c Word centered d Consecration e Wholehearted and f Reverent Hughes also emphasizes the necessity in selecting music for a service that is relevant to the Text being biblical the Tune expressing a specific emotion and the Fit being appropriate for the congregation at hand 4 Tim Keller challenging me in what musical excellence for a service should look like Keller hires professional musicians even nonChristian as he notes to be consistent with the Reformed view I m currently in disagreement with this as a necessity for a service but I will continue to look into this aspect over time

SUMMARY á Worship by the Book Ding of principle and practice are what Worship by the Book addresses Cutting through cultural cliches D A Carson Mark Ashton Kent Hughes and Timothy Keller explore respectively Worship Under the Word Following in Cranmer's Footsteps Free Church Worship The Challenge of Freedom Reformed Worship in the Global City 'This is not a comprehensive theology of worship ' writes Carson 'Still less is it a sociological analysis of current trends or a minister's manual chockfull of 'how to' instructions' Rather this book offers pastors other. A compilation of 4 authors A couple of the sections were rather predictable outlines of basic stuff But as he has done in other books the writing of Timothy Keller was very compelling to me Among other things he got me really interested in Calvin s writings about worship which reflect his insistence that we consult the Bible our culture and our historical traditions in the way we construct worship I also pulled out this uote from C S Lewis which I thought was particularly applicable to the way worship songs are written today and the way worship is sometimes led Instead of telling us a thing is terrible describe it so that we ll be terrified Don t say it was a delight make us say delightful when we ve read the description We would do well in our selection of songs to skip over those that blather on and on about Give him gloryoh praise him and sing songs that give us substantive thoughts that simply lead us to do that
