Foundations of Christian Worship

Westminster John Knox Press, 1 de gen. 2006 - 245 pàgines

Providing structure for thinking seriously about worship as a part of Christian faith and experience, Foundations of Christian Worship addresses the question, what is Christian worship and why do Christians worship as they do? Beginning with an overview of the theological, biblical, historical, and anthropological foundations of Christian worship, Susan J. White then turns to discussing its components--prayer, creeds, music, time, ritual, and art. Later, she delves into the nourishment of the Christian life and the major worship events throughout the human life cycle. Finally, she discusses contemporary challenges to Christian worship and concludes with case studies for further exploration. With helpful appendixes and a glossary of liturgical terms, Susan White's Foundations of Christian Worship is an excellent primer for seminary students and ministers early in their careers.

Pàgina 9 - A MIGHTY fortress is our God, A bulwark never failing ; Our helper he amid the flood Of mortal ills prevailing. For still our ancient foe Doth seek to work us woe, His craft and power are great, And, armed with cruel hate, On earth is not his equal.
Pàgina 9 - But you are a chosen race/ a royal priesthood/ a holy nation/ God's own people/ in order that you may proclaim the mighty acts of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.
Pàgina 4 - Saints below, with heart and voice, Still in songs of praise rejoice ; Learning here, by faith and love, Songs of praise to sing above.
Pàgina 12 - COME, Holy Ghost, our souls inspire, And lighten with celestial fire. Thou the anointing Spirit art, Who dost thy seven-fold gifts impart. Thy blessed Unction from above, Is comfort, life, and fire of love. Enable with perpetual light The dulness of our blinded sight.
