Americas Worship Wars by Terry W. York

Many churches are battling through the issues of what sort of worship is most appropriate for today. Should churches continue to sing the traditional hymns that they grew up with or should they embrace the contemporary worship choruses? Should they play organs or electric guitars? York looks at issues such as the connection between a persons worship style and his or her philosophy, politics, and affluence; the phenomenon of mega churches and television churches; the influences that denominations and publishers of hymnals bring to the debate; and the pressures put on worship leaders by church shoppers. York also examines the issue of church growth, since selecting a worship style is, in many ways, choosing a target audience for future members. Whether a church realizes it or not, when it chooses a worship style it is also determining the affluence, age, size, and ethnicity of its future congregation. York provides a sympathetic and insightful guide to what has been happening in Americas worship yesterday and today, and with it, provides the reader with the information necessary to create a vision for Americas worship tomorrow.
