Textbooks for the next semester arrived—some interesting quick observations.
A chapter subtitle: “Why God Has Been Lost and Where We Can Look for Him.” Intriguing, and I see the author’s point after a quick scan.
I found a chapter elsewhere called “Qualifications for worshippers,” which I will think about before I read it. (Is worship not just for everyone…? There are requirements to worship…?)
I wonder why worship leaders need to study Systematic Theology, Historical Theology, Pastoral Theology, Biblical Theology, and Exegetical Theology, but I am about to find out.
I have to review Andrew Root’s “The Relational Pastor – sharing in Christ by sharing ourselves.” Not a music book, and I’ll have to find the application for music ministry.
Elsewhere, an appendix gives 28 different definitions of worship, including Calvin’s definition .
I read “The SBC in the 21st century” many months ago, gaining insight and appreciation for the history and current challenges of the Southern Baptists. A new book addresses worship and liturgy in the Southern Baptist tradition (Free church tradition). I look forward to increasing my understanding of their liturgical background and motivations, as it likely will increase my appreciation for the Reformed tradition.
