If We Shadows Have Offended: Towards a Worship Theology for Drama in the Church
Dale Harris, 2007, 23 pages.
Drama as skits of sketches is almost all that is known in contemporary evangelicalism. Harris explores some options beyond this idea. Included are concepts of drama related to reenactment rather than presenting a message. Reenactment of Passover, deliverance at the sea and the Eucharist are biblical examples. Included is this summary comment: "...we must begin, not with presentational, anthropocentric plays that emerge out of our own experience and felt needs, but with that participatory, theocentric "play" God has given us to perform, which we hear in the ministry of the Word and is made visible for us in the ministry of the Table."
