Editorial Reviews

John F. Baldovin, S.J.
-- Boston College
"Anyone who is searching for a way to understand the worship that really goes on in our churches -- and how our worship can be improved -- would do well to consult this book. Filled with Joyce Ann Zimmerman’s characteristic insight, commitment, and passion, this volume is meant not only to be read but to be used by Christian communities who want to gain a deeper engagement with God, each other, and their worship."

Jill Crainshaw
-- Wake Forest School of Divinity
"Invites readers to reflect on worship’s deepest meanings, meanings that go beyond matters of worship style and cut across denominational lines. . . . Zimmerman challenges us to consider again how worship stirs up and renews our baptismal identities as people who long for encounters with our Creator and who seek to live Spirit-filled, gospel-shaped lives."

William Dyrness
-- Fuller Theological Seminary
"For those looking for an accessible and ecumenically sensitive discussion of worship, this is the book they have been looking for. Zimmerman provides a wonderfully clear picture of what all Christians share in worship and how they can think together about their worship. The book’s special value is its lay focus and its ability to make complex issues understandable, even engaging. . . . Perfect for a church study group."

C. Michael Hawn
-- Perkins School of Theology
"Exuding biblical truth, theological insight, and historical understanding, Joyce Ann Zimmerman guides us through the rich mystery of the gathered body of Christ. This book is the product of a seasoned writer and worshiper who knows how to be accessible without being simplistic."

Martha Moore-Keish
-- Columbia Theological Seminary
"Transdenominational, practical, and irenic. . . . Zimmerman offers a clear portrait of the complexity of worship in the current North American context and opens a path to reenvision worship that is rooted in baptism, inspired by Scripture, and full of gladness. Useful for worship leaders, worship committees, and students of all kinds."

James Abbington
-- Candler School of Theology
"Unapologetically Catholic and unabashedly ecumenical. . . . Through biblically based, historically informed, and theologically rooted insights and wisdom, Zimmerman clearly defines worship and its constitutive elements. . . . A must-read for clergy, laity, worship leaders, church musicians, and any serious student of worship!"

The Presbyterian Outlook
"Written from faith, to faith. . . . I can imagine it being useful to constituencies ranging from a congregation’s high school class to adult groups, church officers, seminarians, and, certainly, those engaged in pastoral ministry. Zimmerman writes ’from the heart,’ from a generous point of view, but with conviction."
 
Sharing the Practice
"[Worship with Gladness] has the potential to engender important conversations within congregations. It could easily sow seeds of renewal. . . . All in all, it’s a book I would heartily recommend."

CBA Retailer + Resources 
"Zimmerman offers suggestions to help readers assess the personal challenges that keep them from worshipping, such as distractions, priorities, and busyness. Scripture is scattered throughout and reflective questions are included. . . . This book will prompt readers to apply worship as part of their lifestyle."
