The topic of worship continues to be a source of conversation and conflict. William Dyrness offers a helpful resource to aid in that conversation with his book A Primer on Christian Worship: Where We’ve Been, Where We Are, Where We Can Go (The Calvin Institute of Christian Worship Liturgical Studies Series (Wm. B. Eerdmans). The book offers a useful analysis of the current issues regarding worship and provides historical context to see how we have arrived at this point. Pastors and church leaders will find it a helpful tool.
