The metaphor of an architect is used throughout the book to illustrate how persons responsible for worship in the local church function similarly to architects: They envision the concept, do the ground work, develop a plan, establish the framework, create focal points of beauty, and design it all with a special purpose in mind. In the case of worship, the purpose is for the community to be in relationship with the one true God through Jesus Christ.
This book provides a reliable architectural plan for designing worship on a weekly basis. It sets forth basic principles and demonstrates how those principles are conducive to virtually any style of worship practiced today in a myriad of Christian communities. Readers will learn how to create services that are faithful to Scripture, historically conscious, relevant to God, Christ-centered, and engaging for worshipers of all ages in the twenty-first century.
Professors and students in worship courses will appreciate the book's thorough and systematic approach, while pastors, church leaders, and worship planning teams will value its practical guidance on structuring a worship service.

-Robert E. Webber,
author of Ancient-Future Worship
"Cherry's book is one I have been hoping for. The Worship Architect is a helpful combination of solid theology, artistic creativity, pastoral sensitivity, and wisdom gained from the author's wealth of experience in leading and planning worship."
-Lester Ruth, Lily May Jarvis Professor of Christian Worship, Asbury Theological Seminary
"Congratulations to Constance Cherry for offering a much-needed guide for planning worship in our divergent and often antagonistic context of Christian worship. The Worship Architect offers biblical, historical, and theological material to help readers understand the choices before worship planners and leaders today. Cherry then offers worship leaders practical and responsible recommendations for discerning among the options they face. This is a most welcome book for a crucial time."
-Todd E. Johnson
Brehm Chair of Worship, Theology, and the Arts, Fuller Theological Seminary
"Many books about corporate worship focus on style and technique, neglecting theological substance. Others are substantive but neglect the vital role that stylistic choices and approaches to planning have in the week-in, week-out life of congregations. Cherry approaches her task by inviting us all to make regular border crossings between theory and practice. The result is a book well suited to promote the lifelong learning needed for any effective ministry leader."
-John D. Witvliet
