Reaching Out Without Dumbing Down
A Theology of Worship for This Urgent Time
Why do churches fight "worship wars"? Why do discussions about how to conduct worship often split into two vitriolic polarizes such as "traditional" verses "contemporary"? These "worship wars" prevent us from being the church. Working to bridge opposing sides in the various "worship wars," Marva Dawn here writes to help local parishes and denominations think more thoroughly about both worship and culture. She roots her discussion in a careful assessment of significant aspects of the prevent technological, boomer, postmodern society and names criteria by which to judge various cultural influences. She also sketches the essential attributes of true worship--worship that keeps God at the center, builds believers' character, and upbuilds the community. In the process, Dawn discusses music, preaching, Scripture readings, rituals, liturgies, art, and all the accoutrements of worship, and offers practical suggestions for choosing the best tools and forms to deepen worship life, to nurture faith development, and the increase believers' outreach.
