Overview


This insightful book by N. T. Wright explores both the meaning and the results of Christian worship. Part 1, "The God Who Is Worthy of Praise," focuses on what worshiping God actually means. Wright celebrates the greatness and beauty of God as the ground and reason for worship and shows how reflection on who God is leads us to true, heartfelt worship (from "worth-ship"), as we seek to give God all he's worth.

Part 2, "Reflecting God's Image in the World," addresses a range of issues that flow from the activity of worship. Since worship can never remain isolated from the task of the church, Wright here explores how true worship leads to the mission of the church in various specific ways.

Based firmly on sensitive and creative readings of the biblical text, this book is an inspiring call for renewal in the worship and witness of today's church.

CBA Marketplace
Rich in theoretical foundations.... It will be of interest to pastors and worship leaders.
Library Journal
A biblical scholar (The Original Jesus, Eerdmans, 1997), Wright focuses here on the significance of Christian worship. He explores biblical texts in light of what they mean for a living faith, particularly the doctrine of justification by faith, which he believes is a call for Christian churches to put aside differences in order to worship together. He reflects on the important role that churches play in transforming individuals through worship, reminding Christians that they can be agents of change in the larger world. A passionate and thoughtful book, suitable for theology libraries.
