This book is an excellent overview of worship through the Scriptures. It begins with Creation and the Fall and moves through worship during the life
of Abraham and his descendants and the sacrifices and sanctity involved in the worship of ancient Israel. The author also discusses worship space,
qualifications for worship leaders, choirs, the use of Psalms, the message of prophets about worship and their warnings against idolatry, hypocritical worship, and self-indulgence. Further material includes early Christian worship and the perfection of worship in heaven, as well as scriptural guidelines with proof texts. This thorough and clear study gives the reader much food for thought about virtually every aspect of worship.
