Christian worship in North America has undergone great change in recent years. But change always brings uncertainty -- at times even division -- about what constitutes ""authentic worship."" This important book reviews a wide variety of current perspectives and offers a fresh outlook on the contemporary practice of Christian worship.

In order to provide the widest, most insightful discussion on present-day worship practices yet assembled, the authors gathered a team of church musicians, ministers, worship leaders, and educators from eight church traditions. Discerning the Spirits is the fruit of their work. Shaped by the wisdom of men and women like Marva Dawn, Justo Gonzalez, C. Michael Hawn, and John Witvliet, this book broadens today's ""worship wars"" into a bigger, richer discussion that moves from arguments over musical tastes to good thinking about the overall purpose of worship in relation to church life and God himself. Sidebar articles and quotes are meant to draw readers and study groups into dialogue on these issues.

When the armies of Rhubarb go to battle against the Kingdom of Scone, the Great Pie War breaks out and things get really messy! Sweet Petunia, a charming young rhubarb, and the newest VeggieTales character, is forced to flee her homeland to protect her mother-in-law, Nona (Madame Blueberry). When the Duke (Larry the Cucumber), learns of the Princess' plight, he risks his life to help her and learns that true love means thinking of others first. This lesson in love is based on the biblical story of Ruth and Naomi. You'll also enjoy the tale of Miriam (Laura Carrot) and Moses, plus the newest silly song, "Larry Sings the Blues."
