Reformation Worship: Liturgies from the Past for the Present

Jonathan Gibson and Mark Earngey speak about Reformation worship. Their new book Reformation Worship: Liturgies from the Past for the Present, is an irenic plea for the Church (and especially her ministers) to engage again in the two-millennia-old question: “How then shall we worship?” Along with chapters on the Scriptural and historical basis for Reformed worship, Gibson and Earngey include twenty-six Reformation era liturgies modernized and newly translated. Dr. Gibson is Assistant Professor of Old Testament and Hebrew, Westminster Theological Seminary. Mr. Earngey is a doctoral candidate in historical theology at Wycliffe Hall, University of Oxford.

Superb discussion. I say this as a user of Dr. Cranner’s “Book of Common Prayer” for nearly 40 years. That is, the Orders for Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer, the Litany, the Holy Communion and occasional services. And who embraces the Westminster Standards too. Regrettably, a recent Chapel service at WTS was a 58-minute exegetical lecture with the bookends of a brief prayer and hymn. Not quite worship. Also, regrettably, the recent Ligonier Conference 2018 was an alternating pattern of hymn-1-hour lecture-hymn, ad seriatim…three days. While hearing a few speakers complain about “prayerlessness in evangelical church.” <—That entirely flummoxed this Reformed Anglican. Glad to hear this lecture. Great stuff! We soldier on.
