"Worship does God's story," writes Robert Webber. Those four words are the rubric for the entire book published as the final volume of the Ancient-Future series. [Editorial note: Robert Webber died April 27, 2007, at age 73 from pancreatic cancer.] Written on the popular level, Webber argues for a return to the ancient paradigm for worship as the way forward. Ancient-Future Worship is a decent introduction to the liturgical world. The book is directed to evangelicals who are perhaps weary of over-programmed, growth-oriented church life. Its aim is to call Christians to a worship that "discloses the work of Jesus Christ"(97).
