Item description for Christian Worship: 100,000 Sundays of Symbols and Rituals by Gail Ramshaw...

Overview
This unique textbook not only lays out the religious-studies framework of a contemporary understanding of worship, it also offers a full history of Christian worship in each historical period, including the American experience. In light of this history of experiences, Ramshaw finally addresses ongoing issues in our understanding of Christian Worship (gender, authority, ethics, skepticism) and places them into an explicitly cross-religious framework with Islam, Judaism, and other religions. Gail Ramshaw is one of today's most important and influential thinkers about liturgy, is also a dedicated college professor with a keen sense for how to approach the full array of Christian worship experience in light of the contemporary study of religion.

Reviews - What do customers think about Christian Worship: 100,000 Sundays of Symbols and Rituals?

Great Introduction to the world of Christian Worship  Mar 29, 2009
This book is such a great introduction into the diversity of Christian worship. Most importantly it provides a narrative on how the breadth of Christian worship diversified. In this way the reader can make sense of traditions that appear completely opposed to one another and still claim a common heritage.
 
Good basic textbook  Mar 22, 2009
This book is an excellent introduction to worship. If you have no idea of the basic terminology of church, liturgy and worship or if you have no idea of the history of Christian worship, this book is a must-have. Great pictures! Good basic unbiased text. Not recommended for anyone who is looking for more depth.
