Can a normal person enter the presence of Christ or is that something that only happened for biblical characters? Maybe that question leads you to ask "What does it even mean to be in Jesus' presence?" In How to Worship Jesus Christ, Joseph Carroll explains what it means to enter Christ's presence and that it is something available to every Christian - through true worship.
There is much more to truly worshipping Jesus than simply church services and personal devotions. True worship requires complete commitment of emotions, intellect, and will, but the reward is great. Carroll points the reader into the presence of Christ by teaching practical steps of personal worship. He also draws on the habits and experiences of some of history's greatest saints to serve as examples and guides.
This deeply practical and personal book will help you know Jesus more intimately on a daily basis. It will draw readers close to Christ in a real way, to experience His presence, and to worship Him in ways far better than what most imagine to be possible.

(83) I heartily agree. But the issue, I think, is how we do that the way God wants us to?
That is what Carroll addresses in this book. His exploration of worshiping Jesus begins when his prayer life was revolutionized. Instead of going through his prayer list, he quietly meditated on the fact he was in the presence of the Lamb of God and worshiped Him. He reminds us, the morning quiet time is only the beginning. We must walk in fellowship with the Lord all day.
Carroll helps us understand what true worship and why we are commanded to do it. Worship entails submission and desiring to live for the glory of Christ alone. We may come into his presence and sing songs, but true worship is heart worship. "...[W]e cannot worship unless there is total submission of our hearts." (43) Using Abraham as an example, he shows how the submission starts with a surrendered intellect and is followed by surrendered affections and will.
He continues on, helping us understand prayer and worship, how to worship and how to prepare for worship. He advises the use of Psalms, hymns, books by Tozer and others, and poems. He covers the hindrances to prayer and worship.
Since this is a new edition of a book written in 1984, contemporary readers might have a little problem with the style. But reading this book is well worth the time and energy. Carroll invites us to a seriousness of prayer and worship we do not see today.
Food for thought from this book: "Why do people not worship God? Why do people not worship the Lamb? It is because they have never had a true vision of the Lamb or a true concept of God, for to know Him is to worship Him." (81)
I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this review.
