This is a book about worship. It's not a book of definitions, though there are defining descriptions. It's not an instruction manual, but there are lessons in each chapter. It's not a theological treatise nor the last word on how and why we should worship God. It is a devotional series that helps us understand and prepare for congregational worship. These devotionals are lifelong lessons about congregational worship that are universally applicable. Congregational worship, what I often call, faith family worship is where all other elements of the Christian life are taught, nurtured, and expressed. It is the foundational articulation of following Jesus Christ. John Zimmer is a life-long music and worship leader and more recently a writer. A frequent contributor to several Christian websites, John also publishes his own newsletter, Words from the Friar. As husband, father and grandfather, he offers practical, down-to-earth insights into Christian worship.
