True worship is what happens when God does in our hearts what we cannot do ourselves. Even the most well-planned, elaborate worship, with the most beautiful music and the most enthusiastic worshipers, is meaningless if one very important Person doesn't show up.
In this book of instruction and encouragement, longtime pastor Skip Ryan teaches us how we can prepare our hearts and minds to come before the Lord in worship. It will help you, your family, and your congregation place more emphasis on the true purpose of worship: exalting the Lord and beholding His beauty.
"Skip Ryan is an accomplished worship leader-or more accurately, in worship he is a true servant leader who knows how to lead us into God's very presence. In these rich and helpful meditations, he shares his heart on what is central to his calling as a pastor."
-Os Guinness, author of The Call
"Worship Jesus in His joyful assembly with all His holy angels and His chosen people: Gabriel, Michael; Moses, Elijah; John, Mary, Peter, and Paul; your own parents, and those who told you the story of Jesus. Thank the Lord for them. Use Skip Ryan's book and its dialogue sections at the end."
-Edmund Clowney (1917-2005), President Emeritus, Westminster Seminary, minister, author, mentor
"As those who know him would expect, Skip has written a little classic on worship. It is richly expositional, profoundly theological, and eminently practical. Our liturgists and members will use this for years to come."
-Sandy Willson, Senior Minister, Second Presbyterian Church, Memphis, TN
