I really enjoyed this book. Worship! Wow how are we worshipping the Lord in each day of our lives. I love to close my eyes during the worships service and meditate on the words being sung. We can get so caught up in just saying words and not really getting the message out of a song. I think we want immediate answers as Gareth quoted in here God's words " Be Still Know I am God" we all want everything right now. God say wait let me handle this I will decide if you need this or not. I love the way scripture is in the book to back up what is being said. Just everyday stories are awesome in how it puts itt out for us to learn from. I would highly recommend this book.
I was given this book by TBCN for my honest review.
I think that we ask ourselves this question, how do I worship God all the time or do I? This book help us see that there are many ways we worship God. We have to choose each day who we will serve and worship.
Hopefully after reading this book you can say I do worship God everyday. If not, then we have some things to change in our lives so we do.
I was given this book for free for my honest review by book club network.
This a revised edition of the 2004 book of the same name. This book is a kind of how to guide for us to put our daily life's in sync with our worship of God. Our worship services should not be about entertainment. The music in a service should not be the reason we come to church. Goossen shows us that worship is a longing to know and love God all the time not just on Sunday. He gives us practical steps to reach this goal. This is his walking it out portion of the book. This is a book for those of us who want to get more out of our worship of God than just entertaining music. I received a free copy of this book for my honest review.
Worship is more than just showing up for church and singing some songs. It is a complete life experience. The author takes us through the steps to make worship a constant part of our lives. He uses his own experiences to explain his points. Each chapter ends with questions that can be used for a small group Bible study or further personal style.
Worship is a subject that people often overlook or gloss over. The author has taken it to a deep and personal level. I really enjoyed the in-depth chapters, questions, and the stories that he wove into the message. The points that he brought out were thought provoking and convicting. This is definitely a book that I would recommend to someone wanting to deepen their worship experience.
I received this book free of charge from BookFun.org in exchange for my honest review.
Worship Walk by Gareth Goossen is one wonderful book. Reading through each chapter felt like entering into a chapel where you could sit and encounter the love of Jesus reflecting on you from the worship experiences described. I especially found the sprinkling of modern day miracles within the pages to be encouraging and an antidote to the toxicity of those who downplay the works of God in current times.
This book contains a lot of good news I have never heard about in the media, and that is not just because I am in the USA and Gareth Goossen is in Canada. He has news all Christians and nonbelievers need to hear to boost our knowledge of how great our God is. This book enlarges the concept of worship so it no longer fits into the neat little time frame of Sunday mornings, 11:00 a.m. until Noon.
Gareth Goossen and his family have been radically dependent upon God. They have been open to His leading and have seen blessings of provision that can only be found through going beyond the compromising typical North American lifestyles. The description of sacrifice is not given to in anyway give glory to Goossen and his family but only to give glory to God as another form of worship is presented. God is shown to be supernatural and beyond our comprehension in His goodness and the way He shows His love for people.
Worship Walk is a book for all who follow Jesus and want to be more intentional in their expressions of worship. The book would be a welcome gift for worship leaders and those who help them. Worship leaders may feel challenged to present to congregants ways they can worship not only more effectively during the Sunday service but also at home and anywhere they may be.
