Spiritual Anorexia: How Contemporary Worship Is Starving the Church

A Must-Read Book on Worship

It’s Not Just About the Music
In Spiritual Anorexia: How Contemporary Worship is Starving the Church, Dr. Doug Erlandson presents a balanced but devastating critique of the contemporary-style worship model and shows how this type of worship deprives Christians of the feast of true corporate worship.

Drawing from personal experience and extensive research into the history of Christian worship, Dr. Erlandson analyzes the motivations for contemporary-style worship and assesses its strengths and weaknesses. He argues persuasively that corporate worship should be a dramatic presentation of the Gospel. Historically, Christian worship has included distinctive elements in making this presentation. These elements include the call to worship, recitation of the creeds, confession of sin, absolution, Christ-centered preaching and a benediction.

Faith Reborn: A Personal Apologetics

What If God Is Real?

A Compelling Memoir by a Formerly Skeptical Scholar
In Faith Reborn: A Personal Apologetics, Dr. Doug Erlandson tells why he became a “scientistic materialist” while an undergraduate at Wheaton College, one of the foremost evangelical colleges in the United States. He describes how, after twelve years of wandering through atheism and pantheism, he again became a Christian while teaching in the philosophy department of the University of Nebraska. Throughout the book, Dr. Erlandson weaves his account of the factors that led him to question his non-Christian worldview around a serious presentation of Christian apologetics.
