Author Bio

William Dyrness is professor of theology and culture at Fuller Theological Seminary. His several other books include Reformed Theology and Visual Culture and The Earth is God’s: A Theology of American Culture.

Publisher Description

Worship is an integral part of the Christian experience, yet it can so easily become a topic of division in the corporate setting. Is there such a thing as “proper” worship and if so, how can it be identified? Can there be only one way to worship for all? Does God accept worship of any variety or does he require a certain spirit or form? These and many other questions swirl about in an increasingly prominent debate.

William Dyrness offers this brief primer to address these issues. He first seeks to introduce and interpret the current conversations on the subject for worship leaders, pastors, and lay leaders. He applies his aptitude as a scholar of theology and culture to the debate in order to make the entire conversation accessible to a wider audience. Then Dyrness seeks to awaken the average worshipper to the importance of worship issues. He encourages deeper reflection on these questions in order to make the entire community more faithful and biblical worshippers. Finally, he considers the origins of worship in gratitude, the cultural influence of the forms of worship, the ways in which worship binds us to the common heritage of Christendom, and more.
