God has a story. Worship does God's story.
There is a crisis of worship today. The problem goes beyond matters of style--it is a crisis of content and of form. Worship in churches today is too often dead and dry, or busy and self-involved. Robert Webber attributes these problems to a loss of vision of God and of God's narrative in past, present, and future history. As he examines worship practices of Old Testament Israel and the early church, Webber uncovers ancient principles and practices that can reinvigorate our worship today and into the future.
The final volume in Webber's acclaimed Ancient-Future series, Ancient-Future Worship is the culmination of a lifetime of study and reflection on Christian worship. Here is an urgent call to recover a vigorous, God-glorifying, transformative worship through the enactment and proclamation of God's glorious story. The road to the future, argues Webber, runs through the past.

I chose this book to study how to use the old applications to the "now" living usage. I liked it because it made me think "why" I do or think the way I do and I'm... Read morePublished on December 10, 2012 by DeeDee
I feel like most of this book was a waste of my time. Webber is a overly romantic, mystic, and postmodern in his view of worship. Read morePublished on September 29, 2012 by Jerett Olson
