A history of worship in Israel, from the age of the patriarchs until the New Testament period. Begins by discussing the faith of the patriarchs and the ways in which the worship of Yahweh came into Israel. Goes on to discuss aspects of this worship during the monarchy: the cult, the temple, psalmody, and the relation of prophecy to liturgy. The institution of the Synagogue is then considered, and the final chapter of the book deals with the forms and the spirit of worship.
