ABOUT THE BOOK: The goal of biblical worship is to please God. Most of the energy in the worshiping church, however, is invested in pleasing self-the worshiper. We have it backwards This study confronts the self-centered nature of today's worship and challenges worshipers to think and to approach God differently. For worship leaders, church leaders, small groups, and every Christian, this book gives nine practical, biblical values to pursue as we make pleasing God our goal. These values will clear the haze surrounding the purpose of our corporate gatherings and give a new focus to the way we worship.
