Boomers vs. busters, clergy vs. laypeople, organists vs. guitarists---"worship wars" are tearing our churches apart!

You'll learn practical ways to determine the best methods for deepening worship life, nurturing new and mature believers, and strengthening your ministry in the church and the world. 316 pages, softcover from Eerdmans.

    The author manages to discuss the topic without being offensive, snobby, or condescending. This book would be IDEAL for any college or seminary to have students read, no matter which side of the "worship wars" they are on. The book is easily readable (not academically dry) without losing content. It is also written in such a way that I believe discussion groups could take it in sections and have plenty to "discuss."

    This is a great book. It goesagainst the grain of much ofmany modern-day churches' emphasis on what some would call "dumbingdown" worship to meet the "needs"of the unchurched. In the author's own words, "Many congregations today are switching worship practices without investigating what worship meansand how our worship relates tocontemporary culture." Her bookunpacks this statement.Her book will probably be morepalatable to those from a liturgical tradition. But Ithink everyone, no matter theirtradition or church affiliation,should dig into this book and takeher discussion seriously.

    Ms. Dawn provides the church with a well-diagnosed summary of the issues we need to keep in focus in our worship practices. She does an excellent job of using resources that analyze the depth of thought for the average American. She rightly emphasizes more "God-ward" worship and chides us for so much of our consumerist"feel good" self-absorbed worship practices. However, she assignes a higher value to creeds and liturgies than Holy Scripture. She hails the strength of the memorized parts of a service without mentioning the far greater strength and comfort found in the true source document for litergical inspiration -- God's Word. I believe that her misplaced emphasisputting the Bible on the "back burner," makes what could be a GREAT book, a fairly good book for evaluating the worship experience at your church.
