Book on Worship

It seems to me that worship is very slip-shod these days. No preparation goes into the worship service, into the flow, into the prayer, into the Scripture reading. Maybe this book will help. My guess is that it would be the perfect book to help ruling elders as well as ministerial candidates have a more wholistic view of worship, and of the flow of worship.

    Lane, while you’re commenting on books: I seem to have read somewhere on the internet (don’t remember where) that James Dennison is coming out with a 3-volume set of books in which he gives the texts (with commentaries?) on ALL the Reformed confessions and catechisms (large, small, known, barely known) that have been published since the Reformation.

    Do you know anything about this? Provide a link?

    I use this book regularly in my preparation for services on the Lord’s Day. It is a great resource and I highly recommend it.

    I’ve had, and extensively used, this book for over ten years. When it came out, I thought surely it would “take hold” in the PCA and worship would improve. That hasn’t happened. If anything, reverent, thought-out worship, in the Reformed tradition, is much harder to find now than it was when this book first came out.

    The prevailing philosophy of worship in most Reformed cirlces, it seems, is the Gospel according to Cole Porter — Anything Goes.

    RPW is sending out a distress signal in all of our churches it seems.
