Liturgical worship is often viewed as nothing more than an outdated tradition, or a series of meaningless words and motions. The reality, however, is much different. The form of worship that is often described as liturgical, or traditional, has strong roots in both Scripture and Christian history.
In this book, Rev. Cooper explains the Biblical and theological foundations of liturgical worship. This is then followed by chapters on various aspects of the worship service. The meaning of each element is illuminated alongside of the rich Scriptural teaching within these aspects of Christian worship. At the end of the work, a glossary is included which serves as a guide for those who are unfamiliar with liturgical terminology.
