In this comprehensive volume, an ecumenical group of evangelical scholars, denominational leaders, and ministers provide insight into the traditions and practices of the sacred actions of worship in the ancient, Medieval, Eastern Orthodox, Reformation, and modern churches. Other sections highlight the historical origins and development of ritual in worship. Numerous historical and contemporary liturgical and special worship services are provided throughout the volume.The combination of historical and theological surveys with sample outlines for liturgies and worship services is unique, as is the range of coverage: from baptism and the Lord's Supper to child dedication, foot washing, and renewal of baptismal pledges as practiced by a wide variety of Christian groups. The Sacred Actions of Christian Worship is a rich storehouse of information and guidance for those who plan and participate in Christian worship. Dennis D. Martin, Assistant Professor of Theology, Loyola University
