Worship is special and it is dialogical in nature. It is also prescribed. The fact of being in God's special presence means that not only are general principles to be observed, but the very elements of worship have been written out beforehand. Written from a Reformed Presbyterian view of Scripture, "Worship in the Presence of God" is a collection of essays on the nature, elements, and historic views and practice of worship. Edited by Drs. Frank J. Smith and David C. Lachman, "Worship in the Presence of God" contains articles by James E. Bordwine, E. Clark Copeland, Louis F. DeBoer, J. Cameron Fraser, Herman Hanko, Kerry W. Hurst, R. Sherman Isbell, Douglas F. Kelly, Henry Krabbendam, David C. Lachman, John Murray, Kevin Reed, Thomas G. Reid, Jr., A. M. Schneider, III, C. Greg Singer, Frank J. Smith, and William Young.
