Writing from the perspective of the parish pastor, Presbyterian pastor J. Dudley Weaver presents a complete and accessible overview of Reformed worship. In an easy-to-read style, Weaver moves from the history and theology behind Reformed worship to practical information for clergy. He covers the development of Christian worship from the first and second centuries through the Middle Ages, to the Reformation, the period of the Westminster Directory, worship in the young America, the rediscovery of the Reformed liturgical heritage, and developments in 20th century worship. He delivers practical help as well, including help for planning worship, celebrating the dates of the church year, and working with others in the congregation to plan worship. This is an ideal book for all clergy in Presbyterian and Reformed churches, and will find a home in introductory worship courses at Presbyterian and Reformed seminaries.
