    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book by the great and recently deceased scholar of Reformed liturgy, Hughes Oliphant Old. It is as much a work of history as it is a theology of worship, even if it is a bit lacking in terms of references (the endnotes are few and far between)/5.   Worship by the Book is an attempt by four men to bring such questions back to the forefront, to teach pastors again how to think carefully and theologically about corporate worship. Don Carson, Mark Ashton, Kent Hughes, and Tim Keller have each provided a chapter to the book.

    And to ensure that every aspect of worship is done decently and in good order the Reformed tradition has insisted that every service be supervised by the elders, who bear responsibility for corporate worship, and that the minister, who speaks for God and for God’s people, lead and direct the service. He believed that Reformed and Presbyterian worship should involve the whole congregation in every element of the liturgy. Therefore, our heritage included a corporate worship with no hymns, no organ, no choir and no continuous singing! Presbyterian congregations sang the Psalms without instrumentation one line at a time.

    That does not mean, however, that corporate worship should never take place at other times. Significant streams of the Reformed tradition have long recognized that the church may call for corporate worship on other days as long as these special occasions of worship are not made obligatory. Jonathan W. Williams writes, By “Anglican Tradition” I have in mind a number of elements that include but are not limited to the following: use of language from The Book of Common Prayer in the worship liturgy; corporate confessions of sin/declarations of pardon/absolution; weekly Communion; kneeling for corporate prayer; beautifully adorned sanctuaries (even if some spaces out of.
