Pleasing God in Our Worship (PDF Download)
Formal and contemplative services in vast cathedrals are as much a part of Christian worship today as casual and boisterous services in refurbished warehouses. Yet this very diversity raises a question: Are all forms of worship equally pleasing to God?
Worship wars have erupted over many issues, including liturgy, music, and "seeker sensitivity." Amidst it all, the spirit of the age has often silenced the Spirit of Christ, and as a result we're all left wondering what is the right way to worship.
This booklet guides believers in recovering biblical worship. It will help you think about what pleases God, evaluate worship from a biblical point of view, and restore our Lord to the center of our worship—where He belongs.
