Few modern figures in the Reformed tradition are as widely influential as Abraham Kuyper, whose views on theology, politics, and Christian culture are renowned. His writings on worship, however, are not as well known. This new English translation of Onze Eredienst fills that gap, offering Kuyper’s clearest thinking on worship and liturgy.

I read this at the recommendation of Doug Wilson and I'm really glad I followed his counsel.

There is much in Our Worship that a more rigorous edit would benefit. Yet, at its core, it is an essential push toward thoughtful liturgy for the "assembly of believers."

In some ways I'm ashamed to have graduated from Bible college and seminary, not to mention having helped to lead congregational worship for some years, without having worked through more of the liturgical issues Kuyper raises.
