Why We Worship the Way We Do

Worship isn’t just something we do – it’s the purpose of our existence.  Every week, Christians come together to share a taste of heaven itself, where all of God’s redeemed people will exalt His holy name forever.  But what’s really going on when we worship?  And what’s worship supposed to look like in the life of the church?

In Let Us Worship God, Dr. Derek Thomas addresses the “how” and “why” of Christian worship.  May we worship God however we want?  Do we need the church, or can we worship alone?  What are the necessary elements of a worship service?  These and other questions find their answers in these pages, leading us to a greater understanding of worship as life’s highest privilege and richest joy.

“John Calvin said, ‘The first foundation of righteousness is the worship of God.’  While each Reformed denomination has its particular manner of worship with regard to various details, Derek Thomas offers a lively introduction to several principles and practices of classic Reformed worship. This book will prove very helpful to church members and visitors.”  ~  Dr. Joel R. Beeke
