In this concise yet comprehensive guide to using and praying the psalms in worship services, John Witvliet first offers summary of key biblical-theological themes related to the practice of worship, and he continues with reflections on every step in the process of preparing to use the psalms in worship, drawing on insights from writings in the history, theology, and pastoral practice of worship, liturgy, and preaching. Including patristic testimonies as 'prelude' and both Reformation-era and modern testimonies as two 'interludes,' the volume also offers a comprehensive list of currently available liturgical and musical resources.
Witvliet offers a first---a book designed to speak at once to both 'traditional' and 'contemporary' worship practices. The Biblical Psalms in Christian Worship will appeal to a wide range of readers, including college and seminary students, scholars and teachers, church educators, worship leaders, musicians, and librarians.
The Calvin Institute of Christian Worship Liturgical Studies series is designed to promote reflection on the history, theology, and practice of Christian worship and to stimulate worship renewal in Christian congregations. Written by pastoral worship leaders from diverse communities and scholars from a range of disciplines, these volumes seek to nurture worship practices that are at once spiritually vital and theologically rooted.
John D. Witvliet is director of the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship and associate professor of Music and Worship at Calvin College and Calvin Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan.
