In this volume Sam Hamstra--a veteran resident pastor responsible for planning worship--catalogues and describes twenty-nine biblical principles that, to one degree or another, shape the weekly gathering of those Christian congregations who wish to worship in a manner consistent with the Scriptures and coherent with their particular theologies. In so doing, he not only rises above denominational labels, he also tells the story of the process of liturgical renewal within his congregation. This clear and concise work is at once scholarly and practical, traditional and contemporary, biblical and relevant. The book is written for clergy and laity alike, who, together, long for relevant liturgies faithful to Scripture. Sam Hamstra Jr. has been a pastor and author for more than twenty-five years. Presently he serves as Adjunct Professor of Worship at Northern Seminary (Lombard, IL). His previous work includes Reformed Confessionalism in Nineteenth-Century America: Essays on the Thought of John Williamson Nevin, a project he coedited with Arie J. Griffioen (1995).
