Melanie Ross pursues research that facilitates the intersection of popular American evangelicalism and academic liturgical theology. Her articles have been published in the journals Worship, Pro Ecclesia, Liturgy, and Scottish Journal of Theology. In 2010, with Simon Jones, she edited The Serious Business of Worship: Essays in Honour of Bryan D. Spinks (Continuum Books). Her first authored book, Evangelical vs. Liturgical? Defying a Dichotomy, was recently published by Eerdmans Publishing Co. In 2014 she was awarded a Luce Fellowship by the Association of Theological Schools and a Sabbatical Grant for Researchers by the Louisville Institute to work on an ethnographic study entitled “Varieties of Evangelical Worship: An American Mosaic.”
