Providing structure for thinking seriously about worship as a part of Christian faith and experience, Foundations of Christian Worship addresses the questions "What is Christian worship?" and "Why do Christians worship as they do?" Beginning with an overview of the theological, biblical, historical, and anthropological foundations of Christian worship, Susan J. White then turns to discussing its components?prayer, creeds, music, time, ritual, and art. Later, she delves into the nourishment of the Christian life and the major worship events throughout the human life cycle. Finally, she discusses contemporary challenges to Christian worship?such as ecumenism, pluralism, and the connotations of worship language?and concludes with case studies for further exploration. With helpful appendices and a glossary of liturgical terms, Susan White's Foundations of Christian Worship is an excellent primer for seminary students and ministers early in their careers.

Susan J. White is Alberta H. and Harold L. Lunger Professor of Spiritual Resources and Disciplines at Brite Divinity School, Fort Worth, Texas. Her special expertise is in liturgy and worship.
