Essays: The Conviction of Things Not Seen

Todd E. Johnson, ed. Grand Rapids: Brazos Press, 2002. 240 pp. $22.99. ISBN 1587430320.

For this collection of essays written in honor of Robert Webber, editor Todd E. Johnson has gathered a group of liturgical scholars who have been influenced and inspired by Webber’s teaching. The result is twelve essays from various perspectives that both inform and challenge continued worship discussion. Topics include the practical, such as the balance between tradition and innovation, style, visual arts, and pastoral care, and the more scholastic such as developing a taxonomy of worship, origins of the seeker movement, the catechumenate, and an evaluation of seminary education in the postmodern context.

Rev. Joyce Borger is senior editor of Reformed Worship and a resource development specialist at the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship.
