A very welcome Biblical Theology of Worship, 13 July 2006
Vaughan Roberts has done what sadly many of our generation have not - turned to his bible for the final authority of what Worship is and isn't. It is not a smack down for charasmatics, or 'I told you so' for conservative evangelicals, but a book simply putting forward what the bible says, and how that should shape our understanding of life.
Vaughan goes through Gods word and shows what worship was under the old covenant, how Christ fulfils the symbolism in the new testement, and so what has changed - what you might call a biblical theology of worship. His exposition is as usual top notch, as is his clarity of writing and sensitive handling of controversial subjects.
Read this with the bible in your mind and not preconceptions, and this book may well radically change the way you think about life! Vaughan sings the song of Romans 12:1
''Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God--this is your spiritual act of worship''
I warmly recommend it!
