Learning to worship is basic to becoming a Christian, says James White. Therefore, the teaching of Christian worship is also essential. White presents this excellent book, based on thirty-three years of teaching experience, as a resource for students and scholars who are engaged in studying and teaching the forms and meaning of Christian worship. White utilizes original documents and classical statements related to worship, and examines historically the application of liturgical practice in parish life. The book includes photographs, charts, and maps.
