Description: The primary focus of this book is to determine if the Greek word for ""worship"" (proskuneo), used in John 4: 23-24, includes the concept of ""bowing the knees"" or ""kneeling."" In the New Testament, proskuneo is translated as ""worship"" sixty times. All of the ""worship"" events in the New Testament that included a form of bowing the knees or kneeling has been documented. This task was undertaken using five reliable sources of information or testimony: (1) the testimony of God, or Scripture (1Corinthians 2:1), (2) the testimony of Lexicons or Greek dictionaries, (3) the testimony of Bible translators, (4) the testimony of history, and (5) the testimony of Bible scholars. The book was written with all categories of readers in mind: worship leaders, clergy, college professors, Seminary students, Bible scholars, teachers, graduate school students, Pastors, lay people, seekers, and is suitable as a textbook in all Bible classes that include the subject of ""worship."" Endorsements: ""His thoroughness, scholarship, and faith are obvious. Kneeling is part of the Catholic mass (the liturgy). I pray his book will help us all to stand tall, and kneel humbly before our God."" -Joe E. Strickland, Monsignor and Rector of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception Catholic, Tyler, Texas ""Dr. Ralph Rowe has written a full-throttled book on kneeling before God Almighty, our creator and redeemer In this must-read for every worshipper, Dr. Rowe powerfully reminds us we have denied the God-given command: 'Every knee shall bow.' I've been intellectually, spiritually, and physically moved to kneel before our Maker. "" -Greg Taylor is managing editor of New Wineskins magazine, co-author of Down in the River to Pray: Revisioning Baptism as God's Transforming Work (Leafwood, 2003) and author of High Places: a novel (Leafwood, 2004) ""It is indeed a privilege for me to endorse Dr. Ralph Rowe's Book.
