  • Book: Gathered Before God: Worship-Centered Church Renewal

    Jane Rogers Vann. Westminster/John Knox Press, 2004. 192 pp. $19.95.

    Here is yet another book on worship, but one that stays clear of the “contemporary versus traditional” debate. In Gathered Before God, Jane Rogers Vann encourages church renewal, not through programs but through worship. She then offers an educator’s perspective on how liturgy might accomplish that goal.
