Editorial Reviews

Princeton Seminary Bulletin
"An unusual blending of resource materials, basic liturgical theology, and careful biblical and historical research, all within the framework of a variety of worship services in and to which he addresses counsel and instruction that are well balanced, informed, and doubtlessly to be discovered viable."

Reformed Review
"Blending his historical, theological, and biblical knowledge with his experience as a pastor, he offers, accompanied by helpful analysis and commentary, an anthology of newly written prayers. . . Old's expertise, creativity, and joy at the ministry of prayer will invigorate and inspire worship leaders, who will find not only much usable material, but stimulating and important background knowledge as well."

The Christian Ministry
"Anyone can benefit from this serious and thoughtful approach to worship."

The Presbyterian Outlook
"This is a book worth purchasing, and more importantly, worth using. The texts are thoughtful, the construction of the prayers are models to be imitated, the theological clarity for those in the Reformed tradition should be studied."

Westminster Theological Journal
"Leading in Worship is the sort of book pastors can mine for reforming and enriching the worship of a local congregation. It can be studied by worship committees, or just taken into the pulpit to use parts of it as it stands. The book is generously endnoted, with a bibliography and index, providing documentation and more detailed argumentation for those who want to look deeper."
