Drawing on years of teaching experience, James F. White provides a unique overview of PROTESTANT WORSHIP. He examines the origins, development, and present characteristics of nine traditions: Lutheran, Reformed, Anabaptist, Anglican, Separatist, and Puritan, Quaker, Methodist, Frontier and Pentecostal. To capture the "reality of worship," White looks beyond the printed texts and sacraments. He deals with Protestantism on a historical basis and brings insight by studying distinctively American contributions. He develops fresh and appropriate methods, focusing on ordinary events and tendencies that include piety, times of worship, architectural settings for worship, preaching, public prayer, church music, and social change among people.
