Across the spectrum, there seems to be a general vagueness about the God we worship and the purpose of worship. Do we have to settle for either dull routine or perpetual innovation?
In this penetrating examination of worship, Michael Horton demonstrates that there’s a better way. Dig below the surface of today’s worship wars and rediscover the biblical and theological foundations of worship. Only after doing so, Horton contends, can we place Christ back on center stage and restore our unity as the people of God in the presence of God.
Whether you’re a pastor, worship leader, or churchgoer longing to deepen your faith, A Better Way will help you rethink Christian growth and discipleship as it reveals the kind of dramatic, life-revitalizing worship you were created for.
The Logos Bible Software edition of A Better Way: Rediscovering the Drama of God-Centered Worship is designed to encourage and stimulate your study of the Bible.

There is a distinct weariness with market-driven, showbiz worship. The pendulum has swung to the longing for transcendence, substance, challenge, and biblically-driven worship. Michael Horton shows us the way.
