Nothing is more essential than knowing how to worship the God who created us. This book focuses readers on the essentials of God-honoring worship, combining biblical foundations with practical application in a way that works in the real world.
The author, a pastor and noted songwriter, skillfully instructs pastors, musicians, and church leaders so that they can root their congregational worship in unchanging scriptural principles, not divisive cultural trends. Bob Kauflin covers a variety of topics such as the devastating effects of worshiping the wrong things, how to base our worship on God’s self-revelation rather than our assumptions, the fuel of worship, the community of worship, and the ways that eternity’s worship should affect our earthly worship.
Appropriate for Christians from varied backgrounds and for various denominations, this book will bring a vital perspective to what readers think they understand about praising God.
Live supplemental option
Starting Sunday, Feb 5, 2023, the chapters of the book will be taught live weekly at Central Baptist Church from 5 to 6:15. The live classes are supplemental. They are encouraged due to the in-class discussions that can help the students better grasp the material, but they are not mandatory. Certificate students will need to take the online quizzes each week to receive credit regardless.
