What does worship look like? Is there just one truly right way to worship? Are there any wrong ways? To what extent should our unity as believers manifest itself in unified public worship?

Sadly, disagreement over how we should worship our loving God has sparked some most unloving attitudes among Christians. EXPLORING THE WORSHIP SPECTRUM seeks to correct this. It provides a forum for presentation, critique, and defense of six prominent worship styles:

Formal-Liturgical - Paul Zahl

Traditional Hymn-Based - Harold Best

Contemporary Music-Driven - Joe Horness

Charismatic - Don Williams

Blended - Robert Webber

Emerging - Sally Morgenthaler

This unique format allows those with a heart for worship to compare different perspectives and draw their own conclusions on what the Bible teaches. It engages the reader's faculties of critical thinking in a way that allows him or her to understand the various approaches to worship, carefully evaluate their strengths and weaknesses, and make personal choices without adopting a judgmental spirit.

An exploration of what worship looks like from a biblical standpoint and why the topic of worship can be so contentious among Christians.


Because worship is inherently theological--because it's a manifestation of humanity's response to God's holiness--it's important to take seriously how we worship and the roles it serves in personal displays of adoration and in community with other believers.


Exploring the Worship Spectrum provides an overview, critique, and celebration of six prominent worship styles:

Formal-Liturgical - represented by Paul Zahl Traditional Hymn-Based - represented by Harold Best Contemporary Music-Driven - represented by Joe Horness Charismatic - represented by Don Williams Blended - represented by Robert Webber Emerging - represented by Sally Morgenthaler
This unique format allows those with a heart for worship to compare different perspectives and draw their own conclusions on what the Bible teaches. It allows readers to understand the various approaches to worship, carefully evaluate their strengths and weaknesses, and make personal choices without adopting a judgmental spirit.


The Counterpoints series presents a comparison and critique of scholarly views on topics important to Christians that are both fair-minded and respectful of the biblical text. Each volume is a one-stop reference that allows readers to evaluate the different positions on a specific issue and form their own, educated opinion.
