DAVID G PETERSON

This accessible exposition is intended to help everyone involved in planning and leading church services think more biblically and creatively about this important ministry. Our aim should be to honour and glorify God in the edification of his church.

‘I am often disturbed or disappointed by what I experience when I “go to church”,’ says David Peterson. ‘At first glance the issues seem to be practical… Mostly, however, these practical failings seem to reveal a poor understanding of why we gather, little awareness of how to lead a gathering effectively, and an inadequate grasp of what we should expect from our time together.’ In response, Peterson offers this accessible and stimulating exposition, intended to help everyone involved in planning and leading church services think more biblically and creatively about this important ministry. Our ultimate aim should be to honour and glorify God as we take our part in the edification of his church. ‘We encounter God by listening to what he has revealed to us in Scripture and by responding to the work of his Son, as the gospel directs. The gift of his Spirit enables us to minister his truth to one another and to take our part in the building of his church. In biblically informed singing, in reading and reflecting on the Bible together, in biblically driven prayer and praise, and in sharing the Lord’s Supper together, God confronts us with his character and will for us and makes it possible for us to submit to and serve him appropriately in every area of our lives.’
