Christian Book Previews.com5 Stars Out Of 5March 3, 2006Christian Book Previews.comJoseph Skip Ryan, minister at Park Cities Presbyterian Church in Dallas, is passionate about leading worship and as a result has authored the book titled Worship: Beholding the Beauty of the Lord. He has also written That You May Believe: New Life in the Son (Studies in the Gospel of John). Within these pages, Ryan covers questions about worship including: why should we worship, what constitutes worship, what should it not be, is our worship weak, can we create a spark let alone a fire, how do we need to prepare for worship, and do we really know who we are dealing with here - with God? Ryan says, What you are really doing in worship is joining in with Gods elect, including the angels. If I keep that in mind alone, I find I have a new attitude about worship. He emphasizes that worship should change us. How empty it is to go without that change worship can and should bring! When Ryan reminds us that we praise what we love, I felt a new challenge to worship and I think you will, too. I recommend Worship for ministry leaders, as well as members of congregations, to dig deeper into what worship is all about and how to be in a true state of praise.
