“There can be no more important issue than that of worship. There can be no more important question than that of how God is to be worshipped.”
In the 21st century, as has been the case throughout history, different interpretations of worship continue to divide churches and denominations. Worship expresses our theology and if we are to worship in truth we must submit to scriptural revelation. ‘The Worship of God’ offers an invaluable companion to those seeking to enhance their understanding of the purpose, history and different forms of worship. Dealing with subject areas from the regulative principle of worship to the distinctives of reformed liturgy, from Heart worship to the place of Psalms and contemporary worship music, this book gives us unique insights on an issue that demands our attention.

“Convinced of the importance of worship for the health of the Church, we offer this book to the public. The purpose of this book is to address a number of the major issues that create tensions in our practice of worship. Our intent, however, is not simply to critique those who differ from us, but also to offer a blueprint for a more biblical, God-honouring worship. Thus we deal with the purpose of worship, the rule for worship, and the practice of worship.” ~ Joseph A. Pipa, Jr., President, Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, Greenville, South Carolina
