Real Worship: Playground, Battleground, or Holy Ground?

Overview

While many books deal with how to worship, they fail to give a definition of true worship. Respected Bible teacher Warren Wiersbe defines worship and the four elements it involves: wonder, witness, warfare, and wisdom. As he discusses such issues as art, liturgy, worship styles, and music, Wiersbe keeps the focus on God and demonstrates the balance of worship for which every church should strive.
