"Combining astute historical analysis with a treasure trove of primary sources—interviews, images, sermons, songs, and more—this long-awaited volume is exemplary in its portrait of the embodied realities of worship at the Anaheim Vineyard in its formative years. It is also a very pastoral book. Throughout its margins, the authors raise questions explicitly addressed to today's worship leaders to help them think better about their present work in light of the perspective of the past. Anyone interested in the future of 'contemporary worship' should give this book serious attention."
— author of God's Forever Family: The Jesus People Movement in America
"Boosters and critics alike know that the Vineyard churches somehow played a crucial role in the rise of contemporary praise music and worship styles, but this remarkable book—with its groundbreaking historical research and thoughtful insider accounts—brings deep insights into the 'hows,' 'whys,' and 'whats' behind that development. Worshiping with the Anaheim Vineyard is essential background for anyone wanting to understand how worship has changed in North American churches during the last half century."

Top Customer Reviews
Reading this book one is struck by the community's singular focus on encountering God in worship and leading others to this same encounter. While "giving of substance" through gifts and service was taught by John Wimber to the fifth phase of worship, readers get little sense of how or whether members of the vineyard did this.
This book is essential reading for all who study or practice Christian worship today.
