It is the author’s belief that there is, in these days, a stirring within the church of Jesus Christ. People are hungering and thirsting for a deeper and richer experience of the presence of God in worship. Many of the Lord’s people are growing tired with the superficial and silly innovations that have been substituted for the worship of God, and which have been the cause of so many debates, struggles and conflicts within the church.

What is worship? How do we worship? What is acceptable worship?

In this thoroughly biblical and immensely practical work, Pastor Bob Dickie answers such questions by directing us to the clearest example of worship in the Scriptures. In Revelation chapters 4 and 5 the Lord pulls back the curtains and allows us to get a glimpse of what true, biblical worship is. It should be centered on Christ and reflect the example of worship that is taking place in the throne room of heaven right now.

The Logos Bible Software edition of this volume is designed to encourage and stimulate your study and understanding of numerous Christian topics. Scripture passages link directly to your English translations and to the original language texts, and important apologetic concepts link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. In addition, you can perform powerful searches by topic and find what other authors, scholars, and theologians have to say about heaven, the trinity, and marriage.

Top Highlights

“To worship biblically, we must be God-centred in our approach to worship. God and his glory must be our main goal and our passionate desire. The desire for success, numbers, or the praise of man should not be the driving motivation behind our reasons for worshipping God.” (Page 29)

“True worship must be focused on the person and work of Christ. When we gather in our churches to worship God, we are not following throne-room worship if Christ is not the main focus of all that we are doing. By this I mean we gather in the presence of Christ. We gather to proclaim the gospel of Christ. We gather to glorify and exalt the risen Christ. We gather to lead others to a saving knowledge of Christ. We gather to honour and worship Christ. Worship is not merely gathering so that we can be entertained, lectured about ethics, or discuss political and moral issues of the day. Worship is about a redeemed people gathering in the assembled church to worship and to proclaim the unsearchable riches of Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Page 38)

“‘Praise is the verbal and heartfelt response of God’s redeemed people in adoration for all that God is, and for all that God has done.’ For example, believers should praise God for who he is. God is holy, sovereign, merciful, loving, just and good. Do these attributes of God not suggest many things that should fill our hearts and minds with praise?” (Page 32)

“Our focus and attention is immediately drawn to him. God-centred worship simply means that God’s glory, honour, majesty and will are foremost in our thoughts and desires. So often today worship is man-centred rather than God-centred.” (Page 22)

The greatest learning is to be seen in the greatest plainness. This would be a fair description of this book. It deals with a profound subject of the utmost importance in a way that the ordinary reader can both understand and put into practice.
