About this product
- DescriptionThe Church at Worship is a series of documentary case studies of specific worshiping communities from around the world and throughout Christian history that can inform and enrich worship practices today. In this third volume, Longing for Jesus, Lester Ruth vividly portrays a prominent African-American holiness church in Jackson, Mississippi, in the early twentieth century. Ruth's rich selection of primary documents presents readers with a vibrant snapshot of this dynamic church and its pastor, Charles Price Jones, caught between factors that threatened the existence of the congregation itself: Jim Crow racism, conflicting visions for the church, appropriate Christian piety, and social aspirations. In the midst of conflicts inside and outside, the church fought to create a space where it could worship Jesus as it saw fit.
- Author BiographyLester Ruth is research professor of Christian worship at Duke Divinity School and professor of worship history at the Robert E. Webber Institute for Worship Studies. He is also the coauthor of the first Church at Worship volume, Walking Where Jesus Walked: Worship in Fourth-Century Jerusalem.
