Recent years have seen widespread changes in worship, and numerous studies have considered the importance of those changes for the church. This volume offers a balanced and wide-ranging approach that focuses particularly on the relationship between worship and spiritual transformation.
This book, the second in the new Engaging Worship series, is divided into three sections. The first considers the connections between worship and spiritual development, the second looks at the role of the arts in the church, and the third examines the results of multidenominational studies of spiritual experience in worship.
The contributors offer a unique collection of perspectives, both practical and academic, on contemporary changes in the worship of the church. Professional and academic readers will find this an engaging and enlightening work.
