For the Glory of God: Recovering a Biblical Theology of Worship


Current discussions about worship are often driven by pragmatics and personal preferences rather than the teaching of Scripture. True worship, however, is a response to God’s gracious revelation—in order to be acceptable to God, worship must be experienced on God’s terms. In this volume, respected Old Testament scholar Daniel Block examines worship in the Bible, offering a comprehensive biblical foundation and illuminating Old Testament worship practices and principles.

Block develops a theology of worship that is consistent with the teachings of Scripture and is applicable for the church today. He also introduces readers to a wide range of issues related to worship. Ideal for professors, seminarians, pastors, and church leaders, For the Glory of God is illustrated with diagrams, charts, and pictures that help the Scriptures come alive for readers and make the concepts discussed understandable.

With its careful exegesis of the Bible, clear understanding of ancient Near Eastern culture, and practical suggestions for the local church, For the Glory of God is destined to become an essential text for putting God at the center of worship.
