"I welcome this collection of the best of biblical and theological insights regarding Christian worship, combined with a serious attempt to address this matter by practitioners. It should provide a new starting point for the discussion and implementation of this key area of Christian life."
--Richard S. Hess, Denver Seminary, Denver, CO
"There can never be too many interdisciplinary conversations as leaders pursue an understanding of Christian worship from God's point of view. This collection of essays is unique: real dialogue transpires while not creating a dichotomy between scholar and practitioner. Ministerial borders are crossed throughout its pages, to the benefit of worship leaders everywhere."
--Cherry Constance, Indiana Wesleyan University, Marion, IN
"Wow! Porter's group of theologians and practitioners walk the reader through Scripture: Beginning with the Mosaic view of worship, progressing to the worship described and prescribed in the Revelation. Finally, Porter provides a worship walk through church history. This text is a resource for church musicians, pastors, and educators: it is a text to be read and referenced."
--MaryAnn Hawkins, Anderson University School of Theology, Anderson, IN
"Rediscovering Worship brings together seven essays and seven responses that explore aspects of worship in the major parts of the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament. . . . This book successfully brings together biblical scholarship and applied theology."
--Craig A. Evans, Acadia Divinity College, Wolfville, NS
