Reviews - What do customers think about Lutheran Worship: History and Practice?
helpful resource Feb 14, 2007
Brauer's book is a helpful resource for those looking to get a synopsis of what the Lutheran Confessions teach on worship. As worship is the active theology of the church (and not necessarily a specific systematic theology topic) we often don't find clear definitions of worship in the Confessions. This is especially true of what many today in the evangelical culture call "worship". But Brauer broadens our perspective with this work. I have found it more helpful as a resource than a book to read from cover-to-cover.
Well-done work on Lutheran Worship Jan 13, 2001
In true LCMS fashion, this work was done by committee. A reputable group of theologians and musicians wrote on the various constructs of the liturgy and Lutheran worship. Given not only is the history, practice and commentary on various Divine Service components, but excellent essays are here to be mined, especially the opening chapter by Dr. Just and Dr. Nagel's contributions!
Insightful Essays about Liturgy and Worship May 26, 2000
This book is a collection of essays released to accompany hymnal, Lutheran Worship. The essays are written by bright theologians and pastors on a range of topics concerning liturgy and worship, including Liturgical renewal, Evangelism, history, the Church Year, Church Music, the worship space, Baptism, Communion, Confession and Absolution, and the Divine Service itself. The essays are informative even to veteren pastors, yet generally they are written well enough that they can useful to any interested layman. I consider this book a MUST HAVE for any Lutheran Pastor. For those who are not Lutheran or who are interested in the liturgy will gain a well rounded understanding of worship from this book.
