    “Liturgical Mission” by Winfield Bevins is a good read for anyone with some sort of church background, whether liturgical or non-liturgical. Around 200 pages, the book addresses many topics, including:

    – The tension between the old church traditions and new trends.

    – Contributing factors to the growth of church liturgy and liturgy is making a comeback in the evangelical community.

    – importance of connecting liturgy with the church’s mission.

    – Various ways modernity has hurt the church.

    – The identity crisis faced by Christians today.

    – Ways liturgy can prepare believers for the mission God has called them to.

    – Characteristics of the two main sacraments in the church: baptism and communion.

    – How the Lord’s Prayer prepares us for worship.

    – The Trinity’s role in the church’s mission.

    – Suggestions on how to incorporate liturgy to a particular group (respectfully, properly, and benefits everyone involved).

    The book is well-written, thoughtful, and a good read for incorporating more liturgy into church services. Enjoyable read and recommended. I was given a review copy by IVP in exchange for a fair review and appreciate the opportunity.
