Product Description

Transforming Christian Worship

Christians worship on the shoulders of those who worshipped before us, and nearly 500 years ago the leaders of the Reformation transformed Christian worship with the active participation and understanding of the individual worshiper. In the spirit of honoring the contributions and traditions of the early Reformation leaders, Jonathan Gibson and Mark Earngey have compiled the most comprehensive collection of liturgies from the time of the Reformation to date, newly translated into modern English from the original German, Dutch, French, Latin and early English.

These 26 liturgies, including historical introductions that provide fresh analysis into their origins and yield new insights, are invaluable tools for pastors and worship leaders as they seek to craft public worship services in the great tradition of the early Reformers. Their structure, language and rhythm continue to communicate the gospel in Word and Sacrament today.  Stimulating careful thought, these liturgies provide a deep sense of God’s call to worship and an appreciation for the Reformers as, first and foremost, men who wanted to help God’s people worship God better. This book will also excite and interest theological scholars and students hoping to connect closer with early Reformation leaders around the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. A useful tool for individuals, Reformation Worship can be used as a powerful devotional to guide prayers.

Providing a connection to the great men of the Reformation like no other text, Gibson and Earngey hope that through their work readers will experience what John Calvin described to be the purpose of all church worship: “To what end is the preaching of the Word, the Sacraments, the holy congregations themselves, and indeed the whole external government of the church, except that we may be united to God?” Amen.
