The Worship Maze: Finding a Style to Fit Your Church

by Paul Basden. InterVarsity Press, 1999.

The book describes and analyzes the strengths and weaknesses of five basic styles of worship: liturgical, traditional, revivalist, praise & worship, and the seeker service. Then it outlines a process by which a congregation can make a wise choice about which style fits it best. The entire discussion is set in the context of reflection on worship's meaning and purpose. The goal of the book is to lead congregations beyond conflict over worship to worship practices that will be the nourishing center of congregational life.
