Contemporary WorshipISBN: 9781848715301
According to the Apostle Paul, 'knowledge and all discernment' are characteristic marks of true Christian love. They are essential if a Christian is to be able to 'approve what is excellent' (Phil. 1:9-10). This ability to know, discern, and approve what is excellent is of particular relevance in any consideration of the Contemporary Worship Movement, a movement which has transformed the services of so many churches across the world.
In this booklet Terry Johnson's aim is to help the reader think carefully about the content and forms of the worship typically associated with this movement, and of their implications for the health and spiritual vitality of the church. .
Terry Johnson is the senior minister of the Independent Presbyterian Church in Savannah, Georgia. He was born and raised in the Los Angeles area. His home church was Baptist, his sport was baseball, and his favourite class was history. As an undergraduate at the University of Southern California, he continued to play baseball and study history. But he also began to grow spiritually and over time sense a call to the gospel ministry. This led to two years at Trinity College, Bristol, England (an Anglican theological college), two years at Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary, and ordination in the Presbyterian Church in America.
After 5 years in Coral Gables, Florida as an assistant minister, Terry married the former Emily Billings, and within 6 months they moved to Savannah to take up the call of the Independent Presbyterian Church, which they have served since 1987. Terry is the author/compiler of the Trinity Psalter and Leading in Worship, and author of The Case for Traditional Protestantism (published by the Trust), Reformed Worship, and the trilogy, When Grace Comes Home, When Grace Transforms, and When Grace Comes Alive. He and Emily have five children. ..
