An exploration of what worship looks like from a biblical standpoint and why the topic of worship can be so contentious among Christians.

Because worship is inherently theological--because it's a manifestation of humanity's response to God's holiness--it's important to take seriously how we worship and the roles it serves in personal displays of adoration and in community with other believers.

Exploring the Worship Spectrum provides an overview, critique, and celebration of six prominent worship styles:

  • Formal-Liturgical - represented by Paul Zahl
  • Traditional Hymn-Based - represented by Harold Best
  • Contemporary Music-Driven - represented by Joe Horness
  • Charismatic - represented by Don Williams
  • Blended - represented by Robert Webber
  • Emerging - represented by Sally Morgenthaler
  • This unique format allows those with a heart for worship to compare different perspectives and draw their own conclusions on what the Bible teaches. It allows readers to understand the various approaches to worship, carefully evaluate their strengths and weaknesses, and make personal choices without adopting a judgmental spirit.

    The Counterpoints series presents a comparison and critique of scholarly views on topics important to Christians that are both fair-minded and respectful of the biblical text. Each volume is a one-stop reference that allows readers to evaluate the different positions on a specific issue and form their own, educated opinion.

    Worship is crucial to the Christian life. Yet fewer and fewer people are in our buildings worshiping. Why? Perhaps we aren't meeting their needs, aren't speaking their language, and, therefore, aren't relevant or meaningful. In trying to respond to the needs of the community, "worship wars" sometimes erupt, and rarely does anyone win. Styles are only tactics, says Jeff Patton, and, apart from a sense of God's transformational presence, empty at best.

    Transformational worship occurs when worship is indigenous, speaking to the whole person in a particular culture at a specific time regardless of style. Patton describes four aspects of life (the Holy, the void, the lived world, and the self) and sees in these four aspects a "divine intersection" where the Holy invades our reality and brings us to a deeper, transformational experience of God's love, presence, and purpose.

    Churches all over North America are starting contemporary worship services or incorporating elements of contemporary worship in more traditional services. While many books have discussed why contemporary worship is necessary to reaching the unchurched, too few have provided solid, practical help for planning and executing this new style of worship.

    In Handbook for Multi-Sensory Worship, the worship team of Ginghamsburg Church--recognized as one of the most innovative congregations today in worship planning and development--offers just this kind of nuts-and-bolts guidance on how to prepare for and execute worship in a contemporary key. Included in the handbook are worship themes that are geared to felt needs in the congregation. This book explains how to choose appropriate themes, build a service around them, and identify lections that build on these themes. Congregations will learn how to identify and address the felt needs of the pre-Christian audience in the congregation.

    Worship aids are thematically based:
    - music--which songs to use and where to get the music and permission to use it
    - video clips--what to use, where and how to get them, and how to get permission to use them
    - graphics and images--where to find images that support sermons
    - dramas--the book includes sources of dramas and examples that can be used by congregations and guidance on how to draw people into drama and train them to participate in worship in this way
    - contemporary calls to worship, prayers, offertory prayers, and sentences

    The handbook contains 30 complete contemporary worship services and detailed how-to instructions. The CD contains a large number of projection images linked to the text of the handbook, and to the Internet, for use in worship services.

    From generation to generation, Christianity is passed down not only through words that are spoken but also through words that are sung. The church's life and vitality has often been profoundly shaped by the great hymns of the faith. But there is more to hymns than classic melodies and stately lyrics. Embodied and preserved in our hymns are the key doctrines of Christian belief. When we think of God's character and attributes, we speak of him as a mighty fortress, a bulwark never failing. When we consider his goodness to us, we remember that great is his faithfulness. And when we think of God's life-transforming power, we sing of amazing grace, how sweet the sound. Musician and preacher Richard Allen Farmer explores the messages of twenty-five of the greatest hymns of the Christian faith. With careful exposition and thoughtful reflection, he shows how biblical truths are encapsulated in a hymn's lyrics, stanza by stanza or even in a single line of a single verse. His consideration of familiar texts uncovers fresh meaning and new significance for the Christian journey. Rediscover the profound insights of Christian hymnody. You will never sing these hymns the same way again.

    Do we think about worship?

    In the 'emerging' generation 'worship' is something to do with style, rather than substance. A matter of live-and-let-live choice.

    But pure worship is declaring with our words and lives that God is more important to us than anything else - that he is our deepest desire and that he is worth more than anything else we hold dear. God alone is worthy of worship because he alone is righteous.

    Louie Giglio points out that worship is simply about value. Our worship is a response to what we value most. If we consider that a person, a thing, or an experience is what matters most then we are willing to sacrifice in order to get it. Worship is coming before the 'throne' of what is of ultimate value to us.

    In the Old Testament the priests would build an altar on which to offer the sacrifices to the One whom they worshipped. In order to find your altar of worship just follow the trail of how you use your time, energy, money and affections. The more time you spend before that throne, the more your life will reflect what or whom you worship.

    It is time to re-engineer what we value most so that worship is something that truly honors God. Some values we hold dear will have to be cast aside, some new ideas adopted, still others will need to be strengthened.
