Format: Paperback
Robert Webber's book has already become a classic in worship circles. While most writers on the topic tend to focus on superficial issues like hymns vs. choruses, Webber engages the questions What is Christian worship? and How should it be practiced in the church? His eight principles can be applied beneficially in any style or setting of worship. If you're really interested in renewing your personal worship or your church's worship and not just changing style, read and think on this book. It will be well worth the effort.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Gerard Reed on March 9, 2009
Format: Paperback
Wheaton's Professor Robert E. Webber challengs us to rediscover and reemphasize worship, rooting it in the ancient liturgical wisdom of the Church. His presentation prompted me to re-read Webber's Worship Is a Verb (Waco: Word Books, c. 1985), a book designed "pri¬marily as a study guide and tool for the implemen¬tation of worship renewal" (p. 8). As the title suggests, Webber wants Christians to become participants in, not observers of, wor¬ship services. Too much of our public wor¬ship, he thinks, focuses on the pastor and his sermon. When pastors do everything--making an¬nouncements, reading Scripture, praying the pas¬toral prayer, preaching the sermon--the people become spectators. (Or, worse yet: fans!)
One of my students, who plans to enter the ministry, recently wrote a thoughtful essay, reflecting on his position paper on ministerial ethics. He asked how pastors avoid becoming "idols" in the minds of their people. (For many of us, I responded, there's no problem: we fail so regularly in the pulpit that no one's tempted to idolize us!) Yet, as I thought about it, there is a certain irony to the Protestant pulpit: having banished the crucifix and images from church, we often seek to install a "star" behind the pulpit! Everything in the Sunday services, as well as the weekly business routines of the institution, must focus on and revolve around the "senior pastor." So I think Webber's rightfully concerned. To really worship God in His holiness, entering into the mystery of His pre¬sence, involves us in the "liturgy" (i.e. the "work") of confession, prayer, praise, communion. And above all it celebrates Jesus Christ.

Format: Paperback
In this book we can see Bob Webber beginning to explore some of the issues in worship that were to become his life work. He was concerned about the way pastors dominated worship and that many "worshipers" were little more than passive audience members. With this book Webber got the conversation started, but he refined his ideas more and more in his later books.

I really like this book because it gives you all the information you need regarding why we worship. We become participants in our church service, not just spectators. I rated it 4stars because it is informative. I would recommend this book for anyone who would like to be more involved in their worship service.
