Evangelicals on the Canterbury Trail : why evangelicals are attracted to the liturgical church by Robert E Webber( Book )

11 editions published between 1985 and 2013 in English and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why do so many evangelicals flock to liturgical traditions today' An updated edition of the classic study. With new testimonies from evangelicals who have joined the Anglican fold and discussion of the emerging/missional church movement, and an update to the conversation by evangelical scholar and pastor Lester Ruth, this thoughtful and engaging book reviews Anglicanism's six great gifts: mystery and awe, Christ-centered worship, sacramental reality, historical identity, participation in catholic traditions and holistic spirituality. In this edition, Ruth adds fresh stories from evangelicals who have followed Robert Webber's footsteps on the Canterbury trail, along with new essays that highlight the diversity of Anglican expressions today
Ancient-future faith : rethinking evangelicalism for a postmodern world by Robert E Webber( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a world marked by relativism, individualism, pluralism, and the transition from a modern to a postmodern worldview, evangelical Christians must find ways to re-present the historic faith. In his provocative new work, Ancient-Future Faith, Robert E. Webber contends that present-day evangelicalism is a product of modernity. Allegiance to modernity, he argues, must be relinquished to free evangelicals to become more consistently historic. Empowerment to function in our changing culture will be found by adapting the classical tradition to our postmodern time. Webber demonstrates the implications in the key areas of church, worship, spirituality, evangelism, nurture, and mission. Webber writes, The fundamental concern of Ancient-Future Faith is to find points of contact between classical Christianity and postmodern thought. Classical Christianity was shaped in a pagan and relativistic society much like our own. Classical Christianity was not an accommodation to paganism but an alternative practice of life. Christians in a postmodern world will succeed, not by watering down the faith, but by being a counter cultural community that invites people to be shaped by the story of Israel and Jesus. A substantial appendix explores the development of authority in the early church, an important issue for evangelicals in a society that shares many features with the Roman world of early Christians. Students, professors, pastors, and laypeople concerned with the churchs effective response to a postmodern world will benefit from this paradigmatic volume. Informative tables and extensive bibliographies enhance the books educational value. - Amazon

The secular saint : a case for evangelical social responsibility by Robert E Webber( Book )

12 editions published between 1979 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The biblical material in The Secular Saint presents the social, moral, and cultural concerns of the Judeo-Christian heritage. The historical material then shows how the church in history has either separated from its culture, identified with it, or attempted to transform it. On the basis of these historical models, Webber argues that there is more than one way for the Christian to live in a responsible relationship with the world. --From publisher's description
Ancient-future evangelism : making your church a faith-forming community by Robert E Webber( Book )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Ancient-Future Evangelism, Robert Webber surveys evangelism throughout the centuries, tracing the development of the ancient process of Christian formation. He translates that process for the twenty-first century, presenting four stages--conversion, discipleship, spiritual formation, and Christian vocation--that can easily be adapted to various church traditions. He also suggests three practical rites of passage to accompany this "ancient-future" practice of making disciples. Webber then underscores how the four-fold process of faith formation is interwoven with three theological themes: Christ as victor over evil, the church as witness to God's salvation, and worship as a witness to God's mission accomplished in Jesus. --From publisher's description

Planning blended worship : the creative mixture of old and new by Robert E Webber( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Planning Blended Worship: The Creative Mixture of Old and New is a guide to planning creative worship for congregations that follow the traditional fourfold pattern of worship (gathering, word, table, and dismissal), or those who prefer a free-church, evangelical style, but who are also interested in the core practices (space, texts, and so forth) that have characterized Christian worship throughout the centuries. Robert Webber designed this volume to show pastors, music directors, and other worship leaders the practical, structural, and theological steps for designing worship services characterized by biblical depth, historical awareness, and contemporary relevance. The author includes charts and forms at the end of each chapter that clearly show how music and other arts can be integrated with liturgical texts
The orthodox evangelicals : who they are and what they are saying by Robert E Webber( Book )

2 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In May of 1977 a group of evangelical leaders and scholars from a wide range of backgrounds gathered together in a meeting that became known as the Chicago Call. The Call provided a unified voice with which its participants argued eloquently for a return of modern evangelicalism to historic Christianity. This book, an outgrowth of the Chicago Call conference, provides insight into the concerns many evangelicals share over the direction in which the church is moving. Some of those concerns are addressed with insight and precision . . ."--Book cover

With the many models of worship available, choosing a style to worship God can be a bit overwhelming. Is it better to go with traditional or contemporary models?
