THE SUNDAY SERVICE OF THE METHODISTS examines the theological, historical, cultural, and practical implications, of Sunday-morning worship as it is celebrated in churches around the world claiming Methodist/Wesleyan roots.
Are there common threads or characteristics uniting the worship of churches that stand in the Wesleyan tradition? What theological assumptions undergird the practice of Methodist worship in different cultural contexts? Is the liturgical heritage bequeathed by John Wesley and the early Methodists still honored in twentieth-century Methodist worship? How broadly has the twentieth-century liturgical movement influenced Methodist worship? Have Methodists made unique liturgical contributions in the establishment and evolution of "uniting" churches in Australia, Canada, or India? What are the implications of twentieth-century Methodist worship for evangelism and missions? These are some of the questions addressed in this volume, which examines the theological, historical, cultural, and practical implications of Sunday-morning worship as it is celebrated in churches around the world claiming Methodist/Wesleyan roots.
