[Early Christian Worship] is engagingly written. It would be a fine addition to the reading list of an undergraduate class or the first year of theological study, especially if it were accompanied by a good teacher who would be able to help focus the conversation about meanings that the book should stimulate.Gordon Lathrop, Worship
