Worship: Adoration and Action (ed. D. A. Carson)

Paternoster, 1993

Blurb Review


This final volume in the series grew out of a feeling that much current interest in and discussion of worship are too much preoccupied with mere mechanics. To counter this, the book offers: a biblical theology of worship is explored (unfortunately in two separate chapters) and then various reflections upon the practice of worship if nine different contexts. In the final part the Croat theologian Miroslav Volf concludes that worship ‘is the outworking of God-centredness in individual and corporate experience.’ If you come across this 5-volume set second-hand somewhere, snap it up while you can.
