Ancient Future: Worship (Ancient-future Series)

Robert E Webber

$37.99

Paperback
With the many models of worship available, choosing a style to worship God can be a bit overwhelming. Is it better to go with traditional or contemporary models? Christians may find themselves asking how early believers worshiped and whether they can provide insight into how we should praise God today.

Rooted in historical models and patristic church studies, Ancient-Future Worship examines how early Christian worship models can be applied to the postmodern church. Pastors and church leaders, as well as younger evangelical and emerging church groups, will find this last book in the respected Ancient-Future series an invaluable resource for authentic worship.

- Publisher God has a story. Worship does God's story.There is a crisis of worship today. The problem goes beyond matters of style--it is a crisis of content and of form. Worship in churches today is too often dead and dry, or busy and self-involved. Robert Webber attributes these problems to a loss of vision of God and of God's narrative in past, present, and future history. As he examines worship practices of Old Testament Israel and the early church, Webber uncovers ancient principles and practices that can reinvigorate our worship today and into the future.The final volume in Webber's acclaimed Ancient-Future series, Ancient-Future Worship is the culmination of a lifetime of study and reflection on Christian worship. Here is an urgent call to recover a vigorous, God-glorifying, transformative worship through the enactment and proclamation of God's glorious story. The road to the future, argues Webber, runs through the past.Robert E. Webber (1933-2007) was, at the time of his death, Myers Professor of Ministry at Northern Seminary in Lombard, Illinois, and served as the president of the Institute for Worship Studies in Orange Park, Florida. His many books include Ancient-Future Faith and The Younger Evangelicals.

Worship that remembers the past while anticipating the future
4 stars By Karl, Jan 30 2013
This is the final book in Webber's Ancient-Future series, though the first I've read and it stands well on its own. The act of worship is described as the community of God becoming actively involved in the redemption story of God and God's people. Through observing the practices of those in the Bible and the early church Webber concludes that worship should both remember the past and anticipate the future, throughout all the practices throughout a service: word, holy communion, singing etc. The other key reoccurring thread of the book is the comparison of different frameworks of viewing the Bible, generally in the west it is viewed as creation-sin-redemption, though Webber has borrowed the eastern orthodox framework of creation-incarnation-recreation. This book was very easy to read, with much of interest, and it flows well.
