True Worship is aimed at the normal lay Christian. Alongside general teaching on the Bible's understanding of worship there are chapters which consider the purpose of church meetings, the role of music, and the Lord's Supper. True Worship leaves us with a challenge to be true worshippers in our daily lives as we trust in Jesus and seek to live wholeheartedly for him.
What is the nature of true worship? What are we actaully doing when we meet together for 'church' on Sundays? And how does that connect with what we do the rest of the week? Vaughan Roberts answers these questions and more, as he brings readers back to the Bible in order to define what worship is and isn't, and what it should and shouldn't be. While we may struggle to define worship by arguing about singing hymns with the organ, versus modern songs with guitars and drums, or about the place of certain spiritual gifts, Roberts suggests we are asking the wrong questions. For true worship is more than this - it is to encompass the whole of life. This book challenges us to worship God every day of the week, with all our heart, mind, soul and strength.
