If God himself were to design worship, what would it look like? Dr. Sproul starts the book by asking this question. In the church today we have many ideas and opinions as to what worship is and how it should be executed. Dr. Sproul answers this question in his book, A Taste of Heaven. This book really caught my attention because of a quote lingering in my mind from reading John Piper's, Let the Nations be Glad; he said, "Missions exist because worship doesn't."
Dr. Sproul explains that the only worship that is acceptable to God is worship that proceeds from a heart that is trusting in God and in God alone. He uses lots of examples from the Bible to drive the point home. I really appreciate the connections he made from the Old Testament that the church would be "A House of Prayer" Here is an excerpt,
Why did God want incense to be burned constantly in
His sanctuary? Incense has much symbolism in Scripture,
but one major factor is that the rising smoke of the incense
was symbolic of the prayers of God's people ascending to
His throne (Rev. 5:8; 8:3-4). In commanding the perpetual
burning of incense, God was telling His people they were
not to draw near to Him except in an attitude of prayer.
That was the principle. So prayer was a very significant element
of the ancient Israelite cultus.
I highly recommend this book because it focuses us on the recipient of worship, namely God. We are reminded that when God looks at me, He sees the merit of Christ. My salvation rests not on my performance, but on His. Overall, I am really excited to see a book on worship that actually focuses on God and not on feelings.

Darryl Strong4 Stars Out Of 5June 29, 2008Darryl StrongA taste of Heaven helps us to understand who is the target audience of worship, the LORD God! This is an excellent book to help us focus on genuine worship in spirit and in truth, with all of our heart, soul and mind. Finally, the book addresses some of the diverse aspects of worship such as music, the sense of touch and the role of beauty. This book is a must read for all who desire to objectively fully worship our awesome and Holy God.
