Encounter with God is an introduction to the study of Christian Worship. It is ecumenically-based, emphasizes the complementarity of Word and Sacrament and the unity of theology and practice, and considers the place of worship in the modern age.
The three authors have brought together their different backgrounds and experiences and have provided a much-needed introductory text. It is specially designed for those of various traditions who are preparing for the ministry or who participate regularly in worship and wish to deepen their understanding. It will also prove invaluable for students of theology and religion enquiring into the nature of Christian worship.
