In this book Selwyn and Philip define worship as our wholehearted
response to God, whether it be through praise, a sense of awe, the work
we do for Him, or even lament. Starting by focusing on the type of
worship conducted in heaven, they go on to suggest that this is the type
of worship that should be offered on earth. When we cry from the depth
of our beings, 'You are worthy, O Lord', we come close to the heart of
worship - and the heart of God.
'Worship' is to 'ascribe worth' to what we value the most. No one is
more worthy of our adoration and praise than God Himself. The more we
contemplate God the more fascination He evokes. In many churches we have
lost the sense of awe that comes from focusing on who God is. This book
will help to uncover what true worship is all about.
