THE WORSHIP ARCHITECT A Blueprint for Designing Culturally Relevant and Biblically Faithful Services, 2nd ed. Constance M. Cherry

There are many books available on the topic of worship today, but few provide a comprehensive, practical method for worship design. Worship professor and practitioner Constance Cherry provides worship leaders with credible blueprint plans for successfully designing worship services that foster meaningful conversation with God and the gathered community. Readers will learn how to create services that are faithful to Scripture, historically conscious, relevant, Christ-centered, and engaging for worshipers of all ages in the twenty-first century. The book sets forth basic principles concerning worship design and demonstrates how these principles are conducive to virtually any style of worship practiced today in a myriad of Christian communities. It will also work well as a guide for worship-planning teams in local churches and provide insight for worship students, pastors, and church leaders involved in congregational worship. More than 150 colleges and seminaries have used or currently use the first edition as a required text. In this new edition, each chapter has been substantially updated and revised, including illustrations, key terms, examples, technological references, and suggested re- sources for further reading. A new chapter on global worship and a new appendix on live-streamed worship are included.
