Product Description

Two questions lie at the heart of this rich, suggestive book: What are the theological implications of worship? and What are the liturgical implications of theology? Convinced that worship and theology are integrally related, the authors of A More Profound Alleluia show in practical terms how liturgy and doctrine fruitfully illuminate each other.

Each chapter pairs an element of the worship service with related Christian teachings, clearly demonstrating how the great doctrines of the faith find their natural expression in the drama of worship and how the liturgy in turn finds its corollary in doctrine. The interrelation of theology and worship is illustrated with anecdotes from congregational life, resources drawn from church history, and themes from novels and films. Each chapter also includes two hymn texts that exemplify orthodox doctrine communicated through song.

A More Profound Alleluia will be a valuable text for courses in theology or worship, will help worship leaders to plan services with greater theological depth, and will enhance worship for Christian believers generally.

Editorial Reviews

Amy Plantinga Pauw
"Christian congregations and their leaders need help in resisting the cultural forces that would cheapen or dumb down their worship. A More Profound Alleluia provides just this kind of help. By calling attention to the theological and ethical warp of corporate worship, this engaging book invites all Christians to love God with their minds every Sunday."

    This unique synthesis of theology and worship represents some of the best thinking about the nature and purpose of worship in the Protestant tradition. A stellar cast of contributors includes John Witvliet, William Dyrness, Leanne Van Dyk, Ronald Byars, Martha Moore-Keish, and David Stubbs. Their six chapters feel connected, not just compiled, and despite their theological richness, the essays are readable and meaningful. I highly recommend this book not just for worship leaders, but anyone looking to rediscover the purpose of that precious hour of worship on Sunday morning.
