Music and Liturgy, Identity and Formation: A Study of Inculturation in Turkey, by Sue Whittaker

  • Jeremy Perigo Dordt University


Research on the worship practices of Protestant Christians in the Middle East is limited. Much scholarly work on conversion studies, missiology, and church planting in the Muslim majority context is available. Yet, little research and resources around worship practices, liturgical studies, and congregational song focuses on Christianity in the Middle East. The Turkish Protestant Church (TPC) sits within this context and is latent with research potential.
