How does one experience God in worship? Chapman believes worship should not be treated as a spectator sport, but rather as a divine vocation, a "holy work" that summon the energies of all who are present. Too often today's worshipers expect to be entertained by God, and the moment for divine communion is transformed into something like a theme park attraction. This highly practical book teaches worhsip participants how to go about experiencing God in worship. Chapman explores the implications of the doctrine of the priesthood of all believers. He discusses the worshiper's role in prayer, music, the reading and exposition of scripture, the offering, and the Lord's Supper. Each chapter contains a brief essay that serves as a backdrop for tasks related to the topic at hand. A list of duties follows, along with review and discussion questions. Pastors, congregational study groups, and worship committes will find this book a valuable resource.
