A Biblical Theology of Worship

The new edition of Foundations contains the papers delivered at our recent Theological Study Conference on the theme of corporate public worship. The first paper was "A Biblical Theology of Worship" by Mark Johnston, the minister of Bethel Presbyterian Church, Cardiff (EPCEW). He began his paper with these words:

"The task of Biblical Theology is to chart the unfolding history of redemption by following the contours of God’s progressive revelation in Scripture. It is primarily about God, secondarily about salvation, but ultimately about worship as man’s supreme response to God. If we are to formulate a theology of worship in terms of its place in a systematised schema of God’s truth revealed, then it must be rooted in Biblical Theology. This is fundamental to all loci and sub-loci of theology proper..."

The full paper is available here and the complete journal (over 180 pages, including book reviews) can be found here.
