Editorial Reviews


. . . Cuts to the substance of the subject of worship in the church. The explanations given regarding worship go beyond mere musical expressions. (Conservative Theological Journal 2004-06-03)

Readers will find stimulus for thought and a resource for teaching, preaching, and practicing biblical worship. (Enrichment 2004-06-03)

From the Back Cover

Few topics in the church today arouse more interest or debate than the issue of worship. Settling “the worship wars” will demand more than simply catering to the latest trends and satisfying personal preferences.

In this irenic new book, recognized experts offer worship leaders and those preparing for ministry a valuable resource for sorting through layers of tradition and creative innovation to unchanging biblical tenets that define three key components to authentic worship:

  • God as the object of our worship
  • Music as the expression of our worship
  • Symbols as the images of our worship

Contributors include Robert E. Webber, Timothy J. Ralston, Thomas M. Stallter, Timothy D. Sprankle, David P. Nelson, Ronald E. Manahan, Thomas F. Atchison, and Richard E. Averbeck.

“Both substantial and accessible. This book will surely engage not only the minds but the hearts of seminary students and pastors everywhere.”

—Barry Liesch
Author of The New Worship

“This scholarly work will help achieve armistice. . . . Bateman not only helps us think practically and culturally, but especially theologically.”

—Jay A. Quine
Philadelphia Biblical University

Herbert W. Bateman IV (Th.M and Ph.D., Dallas Theological Seminary) is professor of New Testament Studies at Grace Theological Seminary, Winona Lake, Indiana. He is general editor of Three Central Issues in Contemporary Dispensationalism: A Comparison of Traditional and Progressive Views.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was a great resource for me during my Worship class in college. What I liked most about it is that each chapter was written by a different author based on their area of expertise I guess. You could say that it was a collection of articles or essays on the topic of worship. It was not a boring book to read and the writing style of all the authors flowed naturaly.

If you're looking for a book to further understand worship, what it entales and how we are required to worship God, then this is a great start or addition to your collection.

Format: Paperback
This is one of the best books I have read on worship. Being raised and thinking that worship was all about music, man was I wrong. To have authentic worship is to meat with Jesus on a personal level and to be reminded it is not about ME! Bateman has compiled a plethora of material that will give you a totally new outlook on what worship is and how we should approach it. If your a pastor that is wanting to bring your church back to Authentic Worship, this is your foundation... A must have!
