"The truth you are about to encounter can change your life, for it is coming from the throne of God through someone who lives it."--Don Moen, president, Integrity Label Group
Have you ever thought worship is less important than believing the right things about God? Or that it consists primarily of singing a few songs before the sermon every Sunday? You may be surprised to learn that God's view of worship is quite different. God is not just looking for believers or a bit of music. He's after full-fledged worshipers.
Seasoned worship teacher Gerrit Gustafson presents a profound vision of the history-changing power of true worship. The Adventure of Worship will open your eyes to the monumental importance of worship in God's eyes. And it will remind you that it is for this very privilege that you were created.
"Gerrit Gustafson's The Adventure of Worship puts worship, thankfully, where it belongs-in the story of God."--Robert Webber, Myers Professor of Ministry, Northern Seminary
"Gerrit is a worshiper, and his book challenges all of us to become just the same. This book is important and timely for the entire Church. In an age of many opinions about real worship, Gerrit makes it simple and clear."--Chris Tomlin, worship artist, songwriter
"Comprehensive yet readable and inspiring, this book will take you on an amazing journey into wholehearted biblical worship."--Stuart Townend, worship leader, songwriter
"Gustafson's conversational narrative will illuminate your mind about what worship is and does. But its real brilliance is the hunger it will create in your soul."--Sally Morgenthaler, Sacramentis.com
