Michael A. Rogers: ""It is refreshing to see biblical theology so thoroughly integrated with practical directives for developing the worship service."" (Eternity) Clifford E. Bajema: "" Out of Rayburn's rich experience as a teacher and as a preacher who has served five pastorates, he gives us a book which should further liturgical interest and discussion on Reformed circles... All in all Rayburn's book is very much worth reading."" (Calvin Theological Journal) William F. Hunter: ""Will hopefully stimulate evangelicals to explore a relatively unknown aspect to the corporate life of believers."" (Journal of Psychology and Theology) Donald Macleod: ""A very ambitious survey...it is a very comprehensive treatment of the worship responsibilities of the everyday parish ministry."" (Princeton Seminary Bulletin) Garry Harris: ""A critical self-analysis of the short-comings in the evangelical liturgical experience. (It) should serve as a guide to more meaningful corporate worship."" (Seminary Review) R. O. Zorn: ""A useful volume which will make ministers and their congregations more conscious of the nature and significance of public worship."" (Vox Reformata) Laurence H. Stookey: ""Those evangelicals who conduct worship services which are casual and uncoordinated and who shun the riches of catholic prayer and hymnody are presented with a thoughtful challenge by a writer with impeccable evangelical credentials.""

He also served five pastorates, including the College Church in Wheaton, Illinois. As a chaplain in the United States Army he served in both the Second World War and the Korean War.
