Description

This unique textbook not only lays out the religious-studies framework of a contemporary understanding of worship, it also offers a full history of Christian worship in each historical period, including the American experience. In light of this history of experiences, Ramshaw finally addresses ongoing issues in our understanding of Christian Worship (gender, authority, ethics, skepticism) and places them into an explicitly cross-religious framework with Islam, Judaism, and other religions.

Gail Ramshaw is one of today's most important and influential thinkers about liturgy, is also a dedicated college professor with a keen sense for how to approach the full array of Christian worship experience in light of the contemporary study of religion.

Endorsements

"I will be enthusiastically adopting this text for my undergraduate course in the history and theology of worship. Using well-chosen moments in worship history as windows into meaning and practice is wonderful. The engaging text, drawings, photographs (including color!) and text boxes/highlighting in the margins are most helpful. I believe that this text will capture more of the imagination of my students this fall. All this is to say that the structure, content and format of Ramshaw's text will be an effective catalyst for our exploration of Christian worship in the classroom. Thank you for providing this excellent resource."
