The Dialogue of Worship
The authors, a pastor and a minister of music in a local church, present the
metaphor of "dialogue" to describe the multifaceted nature of Christian
THE DIALOGUE OF WORSHIP
The tapestry of worship is formed by the various threads of conversation that
occur in interweaving fashion: God's Word being communicated to the gathered
community (both individually and corporately), worshipers responding to God
under the prompting of God's Spirit, and those same worshipers sharing with
each other their understandings of their faith commitments and of the ways in
which God is at work in their lives."
-- Gary A. Furr and Milburn Price in THE DIALOGUE OF WORSHIP: CREATING SPACE
FOR REVELATION AND RESPONSE, Smyth & Helwys, 1998.
[This is a delightful and insightful ninety-page book about the theology and
practice of Christian worship. I recommend it highly. If it's not in your
