Discerning Reader's Best Book of 2003 We are not created to worship. Nor are we created for worship. We are created worshiping. Too often Christians have only thought of worship in terms of particular musical styles or liturgical formats. But a prop

Remember when the word 'mission' meant living abroad? Perhaps that is still what it means in your church, rather than the biblical sense, which is intended for every unbeliever everywhere!

Reading this book helps us to understand how we have made the same mistake with the word 'worship'. We know that worship means more than simply the songs we sing at our Sunday meeting but somehow that doesn't impact our lives the way it should - reading this book helped me to regain my focus during times of sung congregational worship on a Sunday, as well as my general attitude in life!

Every Christian should be forced to understand the concepts in this book, particularly if they are involved in leading congregational worship or are involved in church leadership - honestly one of the best books I have ever read.

"nobody does not worship" 2 Mar. 2011
By Steven J. Simpson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Harold Best posits that "nobody does not worship." He develops the idea of "continuous outpouring," saying that God has eternally been continuously outpouring and that human beings, as creatures made in God's image, are also created "continuous outpouring." For humans, that outpouring is expressed in worship. In fact, all human beings are always in a state of worship. The problem is, worship is not always directed God-ward. For the Christian, though, because of Christ's work, our worship can be redeemed and can be directed toward God.

Best understands that all of life is a matter of worship--of honoring and serving that which (or the One whom) we value. Moreover, Best understands corporate worship to be a continuation of the worship Christians do even when they are not assembled together. Thus, there is no need to have a "call to worship" at the beginning of a corporate worship service, as though worship was something Believers need to begin doing for a while (and which they will stop doing in an hour's time or so). Rather, there is only One call to worship and once we respond to it, our lives are lived out in continuous worship. Interestingly, if all of the Christian life is a matter of worship, then evangelism can easily be seen as an invitation (or a call) to the Unbeliever to worship.

Great base knowledge to build upon 1 April 2010
By C.R.S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great book for anyone wanting to build their knowledge of the theology of worship. It sets the ground for learning about how people interact in a worship gathering. It is impossible to know how to engage people in a worship gathering without first knowing how we all worship in everyday life.

Best 26 Feb. 2013
By Ben Baumann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Great book on worship. May be the best book I will ever read on what it means to worship in your life as an individual as well as corporately. Best does a phenomenal job of striking to Scripture and letting it speak into what Worship is. I would recommend this for every Follower and have purchased copies for my worship leaders that I work with and direct.

Packed with love and wisdom on living in continuous outpouring to Jesus. The author's "voice" and writing style are a delight. Joyful, thought provoking read.
