The revolution in worship services in contemporary evangelicalism is obvious. Over 25,000 congregations use overhead projectors to sing contemporary choruses each Sunday. Multiple thousands of others sing only the old hymns of the faith. Many seek some sort of “blended” style to meet the needs of their members and to make the services palatable for the unchurched. Radical changes in corporate worship have led to “worship wars” in more than a few congregations.
