I really appreciated this book for both the congregation member and the worship team member. It is a pretty easy read while being full of important truth's and very helpful, practical tips helping worship to become a Spiritual Discipline. I will probably right up a little bit more of a review and recommend this book to the congregation at my church.

This was a great springboard for discussion in a Sunday School setting over what biblical worship should be both privately and corporately. It had some great hypotheticals to think about as well as some practical suggestions to think about incorporating.

A very well articulated and engaging look at who God desires us to be as worshippers. One of the best I have read on the subject.

A thoughtful book on why and how-to worship, both privately and corporately. I especially like the practical component, and that he is clear in how he draws his suggestions from scripture.

“We too need to scour the Bible to learn how God wants to be worshiped. For it doesn’t matter how you and I want to praise God. It’s not ultimately important whether worship makes us feel good or if the music is to our liking. True worship must always be offered on God’s terms, not ours. So we need to learn how God wants to be worshiped.” 3 likes
“Why does the Bible keep nagging us to give thanks? It’s because we quickly forget all that God has done for us; we take him for granted. According to Romans 1:21, when we fail to honor God and give him thanks, our hearts become darkened. Indeed, if left unchecked, ingratitude leads to negativity, bitterness, cynicism, and despair.” 0 likes
