Item Description...
Overview
Begun as a practical pastoral guide to worship, this book balances theory and praxis to create a compelling case for a biblical, aesthetic, and covenantal worship service as the place where the Triune God and His people renew the bonds of love and loyalty. Jeffrey Meyers begins laying out a case for a covenant renewal service by means of Old Testament sacrificial liturgics, biblical typology, and covenant theology. He then guides us through the stages of a covenant renewal liturgy, explaining from Scripture the meanings of each step of the service. The final section addresses miscellaneous issues in worship, such as the use of creeds, the "regulative principle," and ministerial clothing. Jeffrey Meyers provides not only a compelling biblical, theological, and historical case for covenant renewal worship, but also shows that it is beautiful, profound, edifying and liberating. Jeffrey J. Meyers is a graduate of Concordia Theological Seminary and pastor of Providence Reformed Presbyterian Church (PCA), St. Louis, Missouri. He has a blog, but we have aesthetic complaints about the length of his URL.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Provocative, Not Persuasive  Oct 29, 2007
The Good: The writing is extremely accessible, with plenty of other texts mentioned for further study. With an interesting discussion of the relationship between worship and the sacrificial system, Chapters 3 and 4 are by far the best in the book. Although at times it feels as though Myers takes the parallels further than he reasonably can, the concept is generally well presented and worthy of further discussion.

The Bad: For a book on worship, the discussion of the regulative principle is shockingly short.

The Ugly: The Biblical references range from prolific to non-existent -- unfortunately they tend to be most prominent in those descriptive cases where they are least needed and almost invisible when stronger claims are being made. Clearly not all propositions will have a proof-text behind them, but in those cases other justifications must be carefully given to defend one's less obvious point. The positions might very well be correct, but Myers spends little to no time arguing for why they are, leaving one with the impression that perhaps no such justifications exist. This is particularly problematic because Myers uses absolutist language in a shockingly irresponsible fashion without even a semblance of argumentation to back it up -- simply because a certain practice can be good or useful does not demonstrate that it is good and/or useful for all, and even if a certain practice is universally good or useful it does not follow that it must be the highest good or the most useful. The book desperately needs a critical editor to force Myers to be more careful and precise with his language, which is extraordinarily poor.
 
wow!  Jul 24, 2006
I REALLY don't like to read. i'm very slow and takes a lot to get my attention. this is the best book i've ever read! This guy is great and has all my respect.
 
A deep and thought-provoking look at Protestant liturgy  Mar 16, 2006
This book is fascinating because it touches on alot of thinking about liturgy that reformed Protestants don't always prioritize. The author is well-grounded Biblically and the writing is deep, yet readable.
 
A much need study in how we do worship.  Jan 24, 2005
Reverend Meyers has done a great job of explaining true Biblical covenant worship. As a Church, especially my fellwo Presbyterians, have often been afriad of liturgy. Anything that seems Catholic or Lutheran is to be feared. Meyers lets us know that that fear is unfounded in illogical. He is helping us, especially us reformed guys, to rethink our worship and to restore the dignity and reverance demanded at the Divine Service. The other reviews did a fine job of summing up the book. I especially enjoyed this take on Robes and the "minster's uniform". Meyers helps us renew the blessed honor of the office of Minister. Every Pastor and member of sessions or elder boards must read this book. I would also recomment, "In the Face of God: also by Michael Horton.

In His Grace,

A Must Read - Don't Miss This One!!!!!  Jan 21, 2005
Saying this book is "original" would be wrong and misleading. There is nothing new or novel about it. Thank the Lord! There is just too much "new and novel" when it comes to most books on worship. Yet this book is packed with fresh insight and perspective. Chapter 6 & 7 alone are worth the price of the book. They give a year's worth of reflection on what you really believe about worship and why you are doing what you do in worship. In these chapters, Meyers discusses the relationship between practice and belief and the role of the Trinity in our worship. Nothing new about these subjects or issues - yet his approach to these subjects will leave you and your church wondering why you haven't spent more time dealing with them. It may very well cause you to significantly change what you sing, how you pray and the structure of your service.

The overall statement of the book is that worship is only rightly understood in light of the biblical doctrine of covenant. The weekly worship service is a Covenant Renewal service and therefore its style, form and content are defined by covenantal relationship between the Triune God and the church.

The book is straightforward, easy to read and packed full of needed insights. This is the kind of book you will want to read with a pen, highlighter, ruler, and notebook nearby. This is the kind of book you don't simply read - you work through it - not because it is hard but because it is full.

Michael Horton's "A Better Way" and D. Hart's "With Reverence and Awe" are great compliments to this work. Each develops a similar view of worship with nuances of differences and each with their own needed contribution. If you are seriously working through what the Bible says about how we rightly approach God in worship read all three of these books. If you can only read one, make it "The Lord's Service". Great place to start, but I guarantee that it will move you forward in your thinking and cause you to want to read more.
