Keith Drury was bothered that so many of his students viewed worship as simply “a contemporary experience largely cut off from its roots.” He set out to link present worship practices with their historical roots in a way that would deepen faith and inspire wonder. In The Wonder of Worship: Why We Worship the Way We Do, he successfully creates that historical bridge

Launching from a topical platform, Drury addresses the primary elements of worship, outlines their development through successive historical periods, then closes each chapter with a series of incisive “to think about” questions. Those familiar with Keith Drury’s work will recognize his “hallmark” in these questions—an uncanny ability to target the underlying issues, engage the student’s interest, and stimulate healthy discussion.

The Wonder of Worship will remain a vital resource in the years to come, sparking its owner to further explore the complex and intriguing subject of worship. Whether student or teacher, let The Wonder of Worship help you see worship as you’ve never seen it before, enriching your perspective and leading you to a deeper understanding of why we worship the way we do.
