Maybe that question leads you to ask "What does it even mean to be in Jesus' presence?"

Like many other christian books from this time period, "How to worship Jesus Christ" centers around giving your all to Jesus. The bigger part of this book deals with the necessity of consecrating ones' heart fully to Christ, which is the basis for Worship. Only the last twenty or thirty pages really talk about tips how to worship. To be honest, I expected something different and think that the message of this book would have also come across with lesser words, but I can't exactly say

Recommended to Ryan by: Dr. Thrasher
This short book on worship is deep. Carroll doesn't waste much time debating or defining worship. He doesn't detail how to worship in a step by step process. Instead, he inspires. The definition and process becomes evident through the book's discussion. That's the beauty of the book. Admittedly, Carroll does spend some on the "how" in the last chapter that goes into some practical principles that either encourage or hinder worship. Those who think of worship as what we do before and after the Su ...more

Highly recommended!!! This honestly might be the best book I have read yet. Joseph S. Carroll has written a short, but helpful book on what worship is and how we are to worship God. I love how often he wrote about other believers who lived a life of true worship. I love when he wrote about several Christians who were preachers and learned what it meant to fully surrender oneself to God and worship Him with their whole being , from others they just met. This 90 page book is so good and every Chri ...more

Simple, true, and inspiring. If you want to grow as a worshiper of Jesus Christ, you'll like this book.

Here's a quote I like from the book: "As we learn to give ourselves to the worship of our Lord, He can be nearer and more real to us than our best friend or closest loved one."

And here's another one: "It is not a matter of saying, 'I see this truth, and I do want to be a worshiper.' No, for we are not what we wish to be or want to be, but what we will to be. You must therefore set

Great book. Easy read. Helped remind me of how important personal worship is. Good how to guide as well. Would recommend it!

This is a reprint from 30 years ago and some contemporary readers may have difficulty with the language. But reading the book is well worth the effort. Carroll writes about a depth of spirituality rarely seen. He describes prayer and worship on a serious level. Sure, we might sing praise songs, but true worship comes from the heart.

This is a book for all true lovers of Christ, who desire to learn how to practically worship their Lord and Savior. Written by a fellow pilgrim who had learned the mystery of adoring Christ by utilizing Scripture, hymns, poems, etc. in his devotion. A must read for those who desire to become what God is seeking--those who "worship in spirit and in truth."

A decent overview of worship

- spoke in very vague term
-used very bizarre illustrations to make a point
-would set something up to explain and never follow through
-had some really good point on what true worship looks like and what's required.
-the last chapter is the best of the bunch

tad bit too lordshipy for me.
but once i got over that the book was great.
the lesson i learned was the necessity for intentional silent time with God. A practical habit that will grow our awarness of His presence. & that relationship is what this whole life is about!

This is an incredible book. I would recommend that this book be read a chapter a day as a devotional. It is a fairly short book and has some pretty good punches of knowledge and shares a lot of wisdom and insight to what worship really is!

Worship: the missing gem in the crown of the church. Joseph S. Carroll gives the how too's of worship. Showing the lives of men like David, Abraham, Paul and women like Mary and how their lives were categorized by "the one thing necessary".

This book is incredible! It is short, sweet and to the point: we find our joy and strength as believers through the worship of our Lord. Joseph Carroll makes that worship simple! ...... Fifty Reasons Why Jesus Came to Die is a great follow up to help put this into practice.

A quick, short read. I remember enjoying it, but I honestly cannot remember one thing about this book. If something had stuck I would have rated it higher. Probably a great book for new believers, though.

It's good in that the book articulates worship as more than just "singing songs." A good foundation for any Christian who is seeking to develop the "heart of worship."

Excellent book! The emphasis on worship is one which is sorely needed in my life & churches around the world. Jesus said that the Father is seeking true worshipers!
