Praise for the Print Edition

All Christians worship God, but many do not fully understand what "worship" means. For All God's Worth is an insightful exploration of both the meaning and the results of worship. Part 1 focuses on God and on what worshiping God actually means. Part 2 addresses a range of church-related issues that arise from the activity of worship. Based firmly on sensitive and creative readings of the biblical text, For All God's Worth is an inspiring call for renewal in the worship and witness of today's church. N. T. Wright is a New Testament theologian of international standing, a committed Christian, and (as For All God's Worth clearly demonstrates) an outstanding communicator.

N. T. Wright

Nicholas Thomas “Tom” Wright (1948–) has been named by Christianity Today as one of our time’s top theologians. He is currently professor of New Testament and early Christianity at St. Andrews University. Wright holds a bachelor’s degree in theology, a master’s in Anglican ministry, and a DPhil, all from University of Oxford.

A fellow and chaplain at Cambridge from 1978 to 1981, he then served as assistant professor of New Testament language and literature at McGill University in Montreal. Before becoming a chaplain, tutor, lecturer, and fellow at Oxford in 1986, Wright served as dean of Lichfield Cathedral, canon theologian of Westminster Abbey, and bishop of Durham.

His academic work has usually been published under the name “N. T. Wright,” but works such as What St. Paul Really Said and Simply Christian, aimed at a more popular readership, were published under the less formal name of “Tom Wright.”

    This is an easily read short book that explores Christian Worship. I did find many of the chapters to be wonderful aids to worship. I also applaud the inclusion of a desire for Social Justice as part of Christian Worship. However I found the chapter on the Older Brother and its coverage of antisemitism to be out of place - not that I disagree with the content nor do I disagree with the desire to have Jews and Gentiles worshipping our Saviour together - but as I said, it just seems that Wright goes too far off-the-track in this chapter. I also failed to relate to the tying of worship with the cathedral - I do understand the importance this would have to an Anglican Bishop - but I've never even been inside a cathedral, and so struggle to understand where the Author is coming from. Overall, a good book that offers not just reasons to worship but also challenges us in how and why we worship.
