BOOKS

Webber, Robert, the Ancient-Future Series (Ancient Future Faith, Ancient Future Time, etc).  All of Robert Webber’s books are helpful.  

Schmemann, Alexander, For The Life of the World.  This book is a great piece on the Sacrament of the Eucharist, as well as an introduction to thinking about he world from a sacramental perspective.

Marva J. Dawn, Reaching out Without Dumbing Down, Eerdmans, 1995 and A Royal Waste of Time, Eerdmans, 1999.  If you're moving from a more free-Church worship setting to a liturgical worship setting, Dawn's work will provide a great foundation.

Galli, Mark, Beyond Bells and Smells: The Wonder and Power of Christian Liturgy.  This is a very accessible introduction to liturgy.

Keller, Tim, see TK's articles online regarding Christian worship.  Find them simply by googling the topic and Keller's name!

Smith, James K.A., Desiring the Kingdom and Imagining the Kingdom.

Chan, Simon, Liturgical Theology.

Frame, John, Contemporary Worship, P&R Publishing.  Frame's perspective on Christian worship is helpful and wise.  He approaches the subject from a Reformed/Presbyterian ethos.

White, James F., Protestant Worship: Tradition in Transition.  White's book is a bit heavy but a good introduction to a wide range of issues.
