Witvliet offers a first---a book designed to speak at once to both "traditional" and "contemporary" worship practices. The Biblical Psalms in Christian Worship will appeal to a wide range of readers, including college and seminary students, scholars and teachers, church educators, worship leaders, musicians, and librarians.
The Calvin Institute of Christian Worship Liturgical Studies series is designed to promote reflection on the history, theology, and practice of Christian worship and to stimulate worship renewal in Christian congregations. Written by pastoral worship leaders from diverse communities and scholars from a range of disciplines, these volumes seek to nurture worship practices that are at once spiritually vital and theologically rooted.
John D. Witvliet is director of the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship and associate professor of Music and Worship at Calvin College and Calvin Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan.
