The desire to praise and celebrate is universal. Worshippers do extraordinary things and sacrifice for what they praise, and the dynamics set in motion help shape history. Although the movement of praise runs through all the great issues of life, knowledge, and theology, it is best fulfilled in praise to God. Drawing on examples from the Bible to modern times, the authors thoroughly analyze the concept of praise throughout Christian history and explore possibilities for integrating doctrine and worship. The result is a theology that is exceptionally joyous, but firmly grounded in a prophetic vision of God and his importance for human knowledge and existence. As a substantial resource for pastors and readers interested in current conversations about worship and spirituality, this book provides rich insights.
