How can a pastor know what will best meet the worship needs of a particular congregation? How can worship in that place be practiced so that Christian disciples are formed and equipped for mission? Edward Phillips says there are many ways to do good worship, because there is no such thing as Christian worship in general. Each church has draws upon its own context to make disciples.

Dr. Phillips makes the case that for today's American Protestant churches, there are five historical patterns that find various expression in, for example Traditional, Seeker, Praise, and Emergent worship. This book will give students a method for evaluating congregational worship so that their churches can practice the goals they truly want to achieve.
