Publisher's Description

Worship in the evangelical tradition is a blend of prepared and extempore contributions. It generally follows a set pattern, but openness to spontaneity is an essential ingredient. As in other traditions, ministers and worship leaders receive very little training in how to lead worship and this book meets a pressing need.

It considers many aspects of worship including: Why do we worship? Who is worship for? Patterns and shapes in worship, types of prayer, singing, preaching, The Lord's Supper, details of leading, the spirituality of leading worship, connections to the whole of life, Worship as encounter, Worship as pastoral care, Worship as evangelism, and Worship as celebration. A directory of resources and online worship is also provided.

Editorial Reviews

'The real value of "Approaching God" is its capacity to broaden and stimulate the understanding of planners and leaders in the local church. This is a "must buy" book for any church that is engaged in reflecting upon its liturgical practice and an ideal text for use on ministerial training for any denominational context. It is attractively presented, and the text is helpfully punctuated by reflective exercies for groups or individuals ... In a simple, accessible yet stimulating way it eloquently demonstrates that liturgical leadership is to be viewed as a mode of theological and practical wisdom.'
