Format: Paperback
Dr. Hill's book presents an overview of expressions of and teaching on worship in the Old Testament. Chapter one gives some practical explanations about Hebrew words translated as the English word worship. Elements of worship addressed in following chapters include: Worship as lifestyle (personal Piety), The development of worship from the patriarchs to the prophets, The holism of the Hebrew understanding of worship as it relates to form, place and time, and the role of the King as worship leader. The tension between God's transcendence and immanence is evident in discussions about Hebrew worship. The role of music and the arts is related to praise, especially in the context of the Psalms and Davidic worship. "Enter His Courts With Praise" also includes numerous helpful charts and illustrations.
Dr. Hill identifies a number of parallels between vibrant, God honoring worship of the Old Testament and some of the trends in worship today. Included are trends such as: the corporate nature of worship (as opposed to some of the negative effects of individualism), worship as active rather than passive, an attention to history as well as the bible, and a more holistic understanding of the relationship between God and man.
This book is an excellent resource for pastors and worship leaders. An understanding of Old Testament worship remains essential for effective worship leadership in today's church. Readers may be surprised at how relevant Old Testament teaching on worship is to the growing church of a postmodern world.

Enter His Gates with Praise is my "go-to" book for questions and information regarding the biblical foundations of worship and it is the book I most often recommend to students of worship. Thorough and easy-to-read.

I had to buy this book for a class I'm taking, and while I wouldn't buy it as a novel to read (hence the 3 stars and not 5), and I'm not much of a reader either, I think that it's definitely a very good book for a class or for people who are avid readers.
