Why do we worship as we do? What are the forgotten practices once central to many early Nazarene congregations? Because historical events and other factors have shaped and molded the various worship patterns found in local congregations, the way in which contemporary Nazarenes worship is no accident. Like other descendants of the American holiness movement, Nazarene worship is influenced by events predating our denominational forebears. This text explores the history behind current worship trends for a crucial reason: the very act of worship shapes and forms worshipers. Beliefs and attitudes are forged not merely by what is heard from the pulpit, but also by what is done bodily in the pew. Ellis examines the liturgical concerns and practice of John Wesley as well as those of early Nazarene pioneers in an attempt to address these issues. In so doing, the book provides a historical resource for denominational leaders, pastors, and congregations. At the same time, it aims to help congregations both to appreciate our rich ecclesial history and to critically evaluate current worship practices in order that they may truly be transformational. ""Maybe it is time to ask how worship took shape in our tribe (Wesleyans) and what a dead man named John Wesley might have to contribute to the current conversation. Dirk Ellis has done the faithful work of a church historian and theologian to allow this conversation to occur. I trust that as you read this, you will hear the wisdom of history as we invent tomorrow."" --Dan Boone, President, Trevecca Nazarene University ""Ellis has offered a helpful introductory liturgical theology by looking upon the history of worship in the Wesleyan tradition with a tighter focus on the Church of the Nazarene. Even for those not Nazarene, this historical review offers invaluable lessons for all theologians and practitioners of worship."" --Brent D. Peterson, Northwest Nazarene University ""This book is a fine example of how historical and theological reflection can strengthen Christian congregational life today, especially as Ellis calls us to resist both formalism and subjectivism, to celebrate the vitality of revival while challenging anti-ritualism, and to embrace a doxological vision of worship which celebrates the beauty and glory of God."" --John D. Witvliet, Calvin Institute of Christian Worship, Calvin College and Calvin Theological Seminary ""Peopled with such figures as John Wesley, Phineas Bresee, and J. B. Chapman, this historical and analytical study bristles with insight as it tracks the history of sermon, sacraments, music, and special services in Nazarene life."" --Stan Ingersol, Denominational Archivist for the Church of the Nazarene Dirk R. Ellis is pastor of Grace Chapel Church of the Nazarene in Hooksett, New Hampshire (2008). He is a graduate of Olivet Nazarene University, Asbury Theological Seminary, and holds a PhD from Andrews University (Religious Education). He has served as an adjunct professor at Olivet Nazarene University and Eastern Nazarene College. Currently he teaches in Northwest Nazarene University's online program. He is a member of the Wesleyan Theological Society and the North American Academy of Liturgy.
