This book is meant to explore those primary realities of man's relation to God which are expressed by his devotional actions. It presents an enduring study on the nature and principles of worship and the foremost forms in which they are articulated in Christianity. The Author contends that though it may be possible that there is diversity in the expressive worship of each of the member of a Christian family, but they all are directed towards the single revelation of the Divine.

Inter-alia, this solemn presentation is divided into two parts. The First part encircles the fundamental characteristics of Christian worship. The methodology in which ritual, symbol, sacrament and sacrifice become part of worship is also examined. The Second part presents descriptive and historical studies that are intended to illustrate the principles of worship, as embodied in the chief type of cults.

It provides a thoughtful introduction on the subject of Christian worship and its interrelation with specific rituals and ceremonies. Also, a separate `Index of Subjects' amplify the value of this handy presentation. This book is a must buy for Christian Laity, Church Clergies, Researchers, and all those Church ministers who want to enrich their understanding on the subject for further impartation.

Evelyn Underhill (1875-1941) was one of the most widely read English Anglo-Catholic writer in the first half of the 20th century. In 1913, she became an honorary fellow of King's College of Women and in 1927 fellow of King's College; in 1939 she received the honorary degree of D.D. from the University of Aberdeen.

She was the author of well renowned books like: Mysticism (1911), Ruysbroek (1914), The Mysticism of Plotinus (1919), Worship (1936). While working on Worship, written for the Library of Constructive Theology, she became deeply interested in the Greek Orthodox Church and joined the fellowship of St. Alban and St. Sergius. Besides writing books, she also wrote reviews and special articles for the `Spectator' (of which she was for some years the theological editor), and later for `Time and Tide'.
