Publisher's Description

Do we think about worship?

In the ‘emerging' generation ‘worship' is something to do with style, rather than substance. A matter of live-and-let-live choice.

But pure worship is declaring with our words and lives that God is more important to us than anything else - that he is our deepest desire and that he is worth more than anything else we hold dear. God alone is worthy of worship because he alone is righteous.

Louie Giglio points out that worship is simply about value. Our worship is a response to what we value most. If we consider that a person, a thing, or an experience is what matters most then we are willing to sacrifice in order to get it. Worship is coming before the "throne" of what is of ultimate value to us.

In the Old Testament the priests would build an altar on which to offer the sacrifices to the One whom they worshipped. In order to find your altar of worship just follow the trail of how you use your time, energy, money and affections. The more time you spend before that throne, the more your life will reflect what or whom you worship.

It is time to re-engineer what we value most so that worship is something that truly honors God. Some values we hold dear will have to be cast aside, some new ideas adopted, still others will need to be strengthened.

Author Bio

Prior to his passing on to glory following a six year battle with cancer, Dr. Oliver Claassen was the Senior Pastor of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church, Cape Coral, Florida.

Editorial Reviews

"A very thorough study, well backed up by Scripture, it looks at what worship is."
"This is not just a ‘how to' book on worship for today's generation. Dr. Claassen draws on his considerable knowledge of the issues surrounding biblical worship today and combines this with an obvious love and concern for God's glory to inspire the reader to worship in a way that is Gospel-powered, Christ-centered, God-honoring and life-transforming. The author reveals his pastoral heart and cross-cultural missions' background by writing in a style that is accessible to ‘the emerging generation' and applicable to the reader's situation, wherever that may be. The reader will be convicted of the importance of worship, educated in the biblical principles of worship and challenged by the all-embracing nature of biblical worship."
"To contextualize God's Word lovingly without compromising its truth requires great skill and a gospel heart. Dr. Oliver Claassen has both. Dr. Claassen helps a much larger audience understand the difference between worshipping worship and worshipping God. Both the style and content of this book reflect the heart of a man passionate about God's glory, and pastorally committed to leading God's people into a more faithful and engaging experience of God's worship in line with the truth of the gospel."
Outstanding! Oliver brings clarity to one of the most misunderstood subjects of my 20 years in student ministry. He looks at what the Bible actually says about God's desire for and from His worshippers. This is written for those of us who want more than a superficial discussion of what worship is and is not; but without the lingo only theologians can understand. All over the country I am asked about worship, now I will point them to this book. Thanks Oliver.
