Holy Roar

My Thoughts

“…the question isn’t what sort of worship makes you comfortable or will meet your need, but “What kind of worship does God call for?” (page 114) If I’m throwing a party for a friend, I want it to represent her. I don’t want it to represent me. I wouldn’t have all my favorite foods there. I would have her favorite foods. When I’m worshipping the Lord, it’s not about my preferences of what, why and how, but God’s! God instructs us in the Bible how he wants to be worshipped. This book highlights 7 of those specifics:

The Hands of Praise
The Fools of Praise
The Music of Praise
The Expectation of Praise
The Posture of Praise
The Songs of Praise
The Shout of Praise

What a simple book about how God wants us to worship. It’s not at all what we want or our preferences. We need to learn what God wants and do that. This book helps every reader, the new Christian, the teenager or preteen, the seasoned Christian and everyone in between, understand the words for praise used in the Bible and what they tell us about how God desires to be worshipped.
The simplicity of the book makes it powerful. It’s not super deeply theological. It’s easy to understand and super applicable. I learned so much reading this book. It’s a quick read too that packs a punch. I love the stories behind the songs that are included. It gives the songs so much more life to know where they came from. The scriptures are pointed and well chosen. The questions at the end of each chapter help the reader process the current state of their worship and help push them towards worshipping the way God calls us to. 

I received a copy of this book from BookLook Bloggers. This has in no way influenced my review. All thoughts are my own.
