Old says that worship is best understood by means of several distinctive Biblical concepts which are tied together by the word doxology. Through a series of engaging vignettes--from the lamentations of Israel to the supplications of the Benedictine office--Old presents a rich profusion of worship variations that have developed out of the Biblical themes for a Christian doxology.
