Publisher's Description

This unique multimedia resource offers a new way to teach and learn about planning, leading, and evaluating congregational worship. The package contains two discs: an interactive, computer-based case study (for Mac and PC, on DVD media) of eighteen months in the worship life of an actual church, and a video DVD of interviews with nearly two dozen worship experts. The case study is an interactive resource that enables students to learn about worship by doing "virtual participant observation." The program features a host of media documenting the worship life of Ravenswood Covenant Church (RCC) in Chicago. This includes more than twenty hours of video of services, planning meetings, interviews with church ministers and members, and commentary by experts in liturgy; a detailed survey of the history and development of RCC, including ethnic, economic, and social data; a variety of church publications, including bulletins and brochures; and much more. The footage in the program captures a wide array of events in the church's life, including a wedding, a funeral, an Advent service, and an Easter service. The video DVD presents a variety of perspectives on vital issues and questions related to worship. The contributors to this disc--including Robert Webber, Don Saliers, Donald Hustad, and Jill Crainshaw--are outstanding teachers in homiletics, worship, music, the arts, and pastoral rites. Taken together, these resources provide a veritable worship class-in-a-box, offering students insight into the theory and practice of real-life Christian worship. User and teacher guides are included.
