Understanding, Preparing for, and Practicing Christian Worship, Second Edition
Authored by Franklin M. Segler and Revised by Randall Bradley
This book is a revision of the classic textbook, Christian Worship: Its Theology and Practice, by Franklin M. Segler, first published in 1967. Since that time, the world of worship and church music has undergone significant changes and this book explores the foundations of Christian worship in light of those of changes. It addresses both age-old traditional questions and takes up the latest in contemporary controversies. This second edition includes five new chapters, "Children and Worship"; "Architecture, Acoustics, and Worship"; "The Christian Year and Other Special Days"; "Drama and Worship"; and "Rites of Passage."
