Product Description

"Reformed Christians," write D.G. Hart and John R. Muether, "are increasingly divided over how they ought to worship their God," a situation they regard as urgent. Drawing on Scripture and Reformed confessions and catechisms, the authors answer such questions as:
  • When are we to worship?
  • How does the regulative principle guide our worship?
  • How does the dialogical principle shape our worship?
  • How do we worship with reverence and joy?
  • What is the place of the means of grace?
  • How do the elements of worship differ from its circumstances?
They also tackle "the most divisive issue": music, concluding with criteria that can help Reformed believers make sound judgments.

Publisher's Description

“Reformed Christians,” write D. G. Hart and John R. Muether, “are increasingly divided over how they ought to worship their God.” Considering it an urgent matter “to recover a biblical view of worship,” the authors have written With Reverence and Awe. Drawing on Scripture and Reformed confessions and catechisms, the authors answer such questions as: When are we to worship? How do we worship with reverence and joy? What is the place of the means of grace? How do the elements of worship differ from its circumstances? Finally, the authors tackle "the most divisive issue": music.

Editorial Reviews

This is a good book, which ought to be read by every believer who wishes to engage in worship that is pleasing to God because it is worship that is in harmony with God’s will as revealed in the inspired, infallible Scriptures.
The authors are measured, balanced and compactly comprehensive. The book is after all, a primer, so they shorthand some of the more controversial or questionable Old School hermeneutics. It’s nonetheless heartily recommended to pastors and elders.
A well-written, thought-provoking volume. . . . Laymen and ministers shold read this discussion of the value of Reformed worship and what Reformed worship is.
A work of great importance to the discussion of Reformed worship. After several generations of books and essays on worship that seemed completely uninformed on the central concerns of our tradition, we are at last beginning to hear from Reformed scholars who know something about the subject.
When the forms and styles of contemporary worship first arrived on the conservative Presbyterian scene, Reformed traditionalists were caught off guard. Instinctively many reacted negatively, recognizing immediately that more than taste was at risk, that indeed something of great value was in danger of being lost. The agents of change were first in print with articles and books enthusiastically advocating a "kinder, gentler" Presbyterianism of lay worship leaders, pop music, topical sermons, drama, dance, and talk-show formats, all in a "lighter" and more "lively" context. Now at last Hart and Muether have provided the first comprehensive book-length answer to the challenge of contemporary worship. Their clear and forceful presentation will help ministers, elders, worship committees, and believers of every stripe understand the distinctives of Reformed worship, why they are worthy of preserving, and why contemporary innovations should be resisted.

    A very good defense of reformed worship with an emphasis on the regulative principle (only elements postively mentioned in the Bible are acceptable). D.G. Hart and John Muether write clear prose, present sound arguments, and base their stuff on the Bible. They tackle the question of etertainment in worship and lay waste to the seeker-sensitive approach to the Sunday service--but they do so from biblically principled reasons.Note, though, that the authors draw upon their Orthodox Presbyterian Church (OPC) tradition. As such, it is extremely rich in intellectual acumen (Presbyterians--at least in centuries past--have been known as outstanding thinkers who excell both at impeccable exegesis [boy, do they know their Scriptures!] and sound systematic theology [there is no end to Presbyterian systematic theologians. They include Charles Hodge, B.B. Warfield, John Frame...) The authors of this short book, then, are standing on solid ground when they rely on their Presbyterian heritage. The challenge: OPC dudes tend to be very intellectual, although this book, I should stress, is NOT overly intellectual. It is, however, deep in its discussion of worship. Thankfully, they write in a fairly simple-to-read style that is coupled with biblical proofs of their points.Read this book with the understanding that it is going to challenge head-on many of the 'sacred cows' of modern American evangelicalism.

    This book proved to be exceedingly helpful and spiritually challenging and thought provoking as I worked though a number of serious issues with which I have been struggling. I have already recommended it very highly to a number of friends and some have purchased it on my recommendation and are not at all disappointed. I would urge all who call themselves Christians to read this book in the light of Scripture and consider the issues and arguements put forth in this book.

    This is a great book! Just what I was looking for - it has taught me so much about true biblical worship. Now I not only have an idea of what worship is all about, but I have a biblical basis for my beliefs! Great job! I will recommend this book anytime.

    This little, readable book is a timely work. Hart and Muether have done a great service for the church by providing a clear restatement of the biblical approach to the worship. This is a must read for every minister of the gospel, and is highly recommended for laymen.
