Presbyterian worship is known for its balance between form and freedom, seeking to be faithful to the leading of God’s Word and open to the movement of God’s spirit. For those who plan, lead, and participate in worship, living within this tension can be a creative challenge, one that poses many questions for our liturgical theology and practice.

Presbyterian Worship Questions and Answers draws on the author’s scholarly insights, pastoral instincts, and decade of experience in the Presbyterian denomination’s Office of Theology and Worship to provide accessible answers to the questions people frequently ask about Presbyterian worship along with a few we ought to ask more frequently. From the philosophical—What is worship and what does it have to do with real life?—to the practical—Why is there a pink candle and when do we light it?—Presbyterian Worship Questions and Answers seeks to shed new light on the meaning and mystery of worship in the Reformed tradition.

David Gambrell is Associate for Worship in the Office of Theology and Worship of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), author of Breathing Spirit into Dust: Fifty Hymn Texts, and coeditor of the 2018 Book of Common Worship.
