In Theological Foundations of Worship: Biblical, Systematic, and Practical Perspectives—part of the publisher’s “Worship Foundations” Series—Williams and her co-editor Mark A. Lamport bring together an ecumenical team of scholars to present key theological concepts related to worship to help readers articulate their own theology of worship.

Contributors, including Williams and Theologian-in-Residence Don Saliers, explore the history of theology’s impact on worship practices across the Christian tradition, highlighting themes such as creation, pneumatology, sanctification, and mission.
