A how-to book on corporate worship for the twenty-first century: how to be authentic and contemporary without being glitzy or faddish.

"What is at stake is authenticity... . Sooner or later Christians tire of public meetings that are profoundly inauthentic, regardless of how well (or poorly) arranged, directed, performed. We long to meet, corporately, with the living and majestic God and to offer him the praise that is his due."-D. A. CarsonWorship is a hot topic, but the ways that Christians from different traditions view it vary greatly. What is worship? More important, what does it look like in action, both in our corporate gatherings and in our daily lives? These concerns-the blending of principle and practice-are what Worship by the Book addresses.Cutting through cultural clichés, D. A. Carson, Mark Ashton, Kent Hughes, and Timothy Keller explore, respectively:·Worship Under the Word·Following in Cranmer's Footsteps·Free Church Worship: The Challenge of Freedom·Reformed Worship in the Global City "This is not a comprehensive theology of worship," writes Carson. "Still less is it a sociological analysis of current trends or a minister's manual chockfull of 'how to' instructions." Rather, this book offers pastors, other congregational leaders, and seminary students a thought-provoking biblical theology of worship, followed by a look at how three very different traditions of churchmanship might move from this theological base to a better understanding of corporate worship. Running the gamut from biblical theology to historical assessment all the way to sample service sheets, Worship by the Book shows how local churches in diverse traditions can foster corporate worship that is God-honoring, Word-revering, heartfelt, and historically and culturally informed.

D A Carson (Ed)

Dr Don (D. A.) Carson is currently Research Professor of New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois. His areas of expertise include biblical theology, the historical Jesus, postmodernism, pluralism, Greek grammar, Johannine theology, Pauline theology, and questions of suffering and evil. Carson has written prolifically and profoundly on all these subjects.

Carson has written or edited 57 books - as well as numerous journal articles - ranging from New Testament commentaries to topical studies on the state of the contemporary church and its wider cultural context. His work is characterised by brilliant theological insight, thorough scholarship, and an uncompromising commitment to the essentials of Reformed doctrine.

Carson's landmark book, The Gagging of God: Christianity Confronts Pluralism won the 1997 Evangelical Christian Publishers Association Gold Medallion Award. Other works that examine the interaction of church and culture include The Inclusive Language Debate (1998), Becoming Conversant With the Emerging Church (2005), Christ and Culture Revisited (2008) and The Intolerance of Tolerance (2012).

Carson's exegetical works include volumes on individual New Testament books in the Revised Expositor's Bible Commentary, Pillar New Testament Commentary, Baker Exegetical Commentary, and New International Greek Testament Commentary. In Exegetical Fallacies (1984, 1996, 2nd ed.), Carson is at his incisive best, analysing the root causes of errors in biblical interpretation. He has also notably edited the New Testament Commentary Survey up to its 7th edition (2013), as well as the Zondervan Study Bible (2015).

Donald Arthur Carson was born in Montreal, Canada, in 1946. His undergraduate degree majored in mathematics and chemistry. He went on to undertake a Master of Divinity with a Baptist seminary and earned his PhD in New Testament from Cambridge University in 1975, the same year he married his wife Joy. In 1978, Carson joined the faculty of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, where he has worked ever since. In 2005 with Tim Keller, Carson founded The Gospel Coalition (TGC) - a network of Reformed churches dedicated to engaging and transforming the wider culture through speaking events, online advocacy, and publication. He continues to be an active guest lecturer in church and academic settings around the world.

Carson lives with his family in Liberty, Illinois. In his spare time he enjoys reading, hiking, and woodworking.
