This work is simply wonderful. Old's treatment of the history of worship is historically illuminating, theologically insightful, and personally edifying. He traces the development of worship from OT Israel to the modern church in terms of various aspects of worship: Baptism, the Lord's Day, the Ministry of Praise, the Ministry of the Word, the Ministry of Prayer, the Lord's Supper, Daily Prayer, and Alms.
He concludes with a short essay on the place of tradition in our theology of worship. The Reformers rightly saw tradition as helpful, even authoritative. But tradition's authority flows from and is subservient to the authority of Scripture.
For those interested in the history of preaching, Old's discussion of the Ministry of the Word in the history of the church is worth the price of admission.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By James L. Ruble on January 9, 2013
Format: Paperback
I read a fair number of books on worship and many of the quote this guy, now I see why. This short book intelligently explains from the Bible and from history why we do the things we do in church. Every chapter brilliantly lays out its subject. Being married to a closet reformed Baptist I did a lot of the classic reading on covenant baptism. Mr Old's 16 pages on Baptism both explained covenant baptism better than all of them combined, it made me see my need to start catechizing Elena, my 9 year old. Why we worship on Sunday, why we sing what we do, what's up with communion, why is the preaching so long? All these questions are concisely and expertly answered.
