In this book, the author sets out to consider what is the appropriate approach to God, from a variety of real life and biblical starting points. He believes it is a question of recognizing God’s worth and worth-ship, which the origin of the word ‘worship’. It simply means giving God what He is worth.
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.
