""Baptists--known for many things, but never for their worship--writing thoughtfully about worship? This is something new! And it is good. Pastors as well as academics blend their voices to sing a new song concerning worship that's infinitely more than most Baptists have experienced. Here is a theologically responsible conversation about worship that challenges without scolding and offers guidance that's actually useable. Enjoy something new!"" --Daniel Day, Campbell University Divinity School ""This is the book I have been looking for! Richly theological and practical, this collection of essays by gifted scholar-practitioners offers constructive guidance for our worship as Baptists. Perceptive treatments of the Christian year, sacraments, and ecclesiology make this an ideal text for seminary classes as well as churches serious about enhancing their practice of worship. I am grateful to have this resource."" --Molly T. Marshall, Central Baptist Theological Seminary ""Free churches are increasingly finding their way to the liturgical riches of the whole church and finding there the resources they need to form faithful followers of Christ. The contributors to this volume have drawn on a wealth of pastoral experience and theological expertise to provide ministers of such churches with invaluable guidance in this journey."" --Steven R. Harmon, Gardner-Webb University School of Divinity
