“Let everything that has breath praise the LORD! Praise the LORD!”—Psalm 150:6
We’re all called to worship God. It’s an incredible privilege and responsibility for all of us—every culture, every church, every Christian, every generation. And yet believers have been arguing about worship music since the days of the early church. Why is this? Perhaps we rely on our traditions, personal tastes, cultural backgrounds, and trends more than on God’s Word.
New Heart, New Spirit, New Song attempts to reorient our thinking about worship in fundamental ways. This volume creates a biblical foundation for worship methods, exploring:
- The nature of music
- The heart of worship
- The role of music in the Christian’s daily life
- Music in missions
In these pages, you will find simple, direct help in making your musical praise reflect the glorious Savior you worship.
In the Logos edition of New Heart, New Spirit, New Song, you get easy access to Scripture texts and to a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Hovering over Scripture references links you instantly to the verse you’re looking for, and with a wealth of tools from Logos you can delve into your study of worship like never before!
