Overview

As believers, we have a desperate need to cultivate intimacy with our God, a place of blissful union in His love. Now acclaimed worship leader, singer, and teacher Steve Fry shows us how. "The key to knowing God," Fry says, "is worship." From jubilant praise to the very embrace of His heart, the author invites everyone to enter into this mysterious encounter with God's glory. The reader will find practical instruction on meditating in the Scriptures, preparing oneself through praise, and seeking God's face in prayer. If you're dry, distracted, dissatisfied, drained in spirit -- or simply seeking "more" -- this biblical praise and worship primer will rekindle the flame of passionate relationship with Christ. Includes worship CD with three songs by Steve Fry!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
All too often, books about worship merely offer some variation of this advice: "You just have to really really really really really love God a lot." Thankfully, this new book by Fry is not one of them; it is refreshingly thoughtful, richly practical and engaging on many levels. Fry, an author (I Am;Safe in the Father's Arms) and recording artist (We Are Called), speaks to worshippers and worship leaders who are feeling dry and distant from God, and are merely going through the motions. The ultimate priority for all Christians, argues Fry, is to cultivate intimacy with God ("bridal passion"). This grace-filled process starts not with our trying extra hard, or with own desire for God, but with God's desire for us ("Jesus ever woos and pursues us, and the pull of His love is so much stronger than our intransigence"). Fry often shows lovely flashes of a poet's or preacher's rhetorical sensibilities, and, though he sometimes lapses into the youth minister's tendency to tell too many stories about himself, these stories and songs often work. Best of all, he combines them easily with plentiful insights from Scripture and a surprisingly eclectic collection of experts (from Dallas Willard to Bernard of Clairvaux) to teach about prayer, praise, meditation, listening in short, a devotional and worship life characterized by a burning closeness to God.
