    A very thoughtful reflection on how we approach worship in the context of the postmodern world. The author begins by showing how the worship wars between traditional and contemporary approaches are thoroughly rooted in a modern, consumer mindset, and that these fights are going to be increasingly irrelevant as the culture around us continues to move towards postmodern ways of thinking. He goes on to argue that biblical worship regardless of style - should be structured around three central elements that have historically been central to all orthodox forms of Christianity from the very beginning; baptism, the scriptures, and communion (or as he puts it, Bath, book, and meal), along with attentiveness to the poor. Byars is writing from his perspective as a pastor in a mainline denomination with a fairly liturgical approach to worship, but his insights would be valuable for pastors and worship leaders from any tradition who are more concerned with the content of their services than they are with the style.
