Praise Is His Gracious Choice: Corporate Worship Expressing Biblical Truth

Categories ,

In Praise Is His Gracious Choice, Dr. Tom Nettles clearly and succinctly demonstrates that true biblical worship originates with God, not man. Believers worship God because he commands such worship, and we willingly obey out of a desire to please him and be conformed to the image of Christ. This thoroughly biblical and theologically robust work is vital in fostering continued reformation within the church to bring all worship that would be God-centered, Christ-exalting, and Spirit-led into conformity with the truth of Scripture.”

Commendations

“In a day of increasing confusion over what churches should be doing when they gather for corporate worship, Tom Nettles provides a refreshingly simple remedy: regulate worship by the Word of God. As Nettles so helpfully elucidates, God alone has the prerogative to determine how he wants to be worshiped, and so it incumbent upon God’s people to worship him according to what he has commanded in Scripture—no more, and no less. In twelve engaging chapters, Nettles explores those instructions, presenting guidelines and principles for a theology of worship grounded in the Bible. Through these principles, Nettles advocates for Scripture-guided worship in which we read the Word, pray the Word, sing the Word, and preach the Word. I pray that church leaders will give careful attention to Nettles’ call to return to the Word in our theology and practice of Christian worship.”

__________

“The modern era has devastatingly given rise to experiential worship driven more by the carnal desires of the flesh rather than heartfelt longing for communion with the Triune God. In Praise Is His Gracious Choice, Dr. Tom Nettles clearly and succinctly demonstrates that true biblical worship originates with God, not man. Believers worship God because he commands such worship, and we willingly obey out of a desire to please him and be conformed to the image of Christ. This thoroughly biblical and theologically robust work is vital in fostering continued reformation within the church to bring all worship that would be God-centered, Christ-exalting, and Spirit-led into conformity with the truth of Scripture.”

“In our church we have a saying that on Sunday mornings we sing the Bible, read the Bible, pray the Bible, and preach the Bible. With this book, Tom Nettles shows us how to do just that–to worship God faithfully according to his Word in a Christ-centered manner for his glory. Along the way, he shows us how the church has worshiped God faithfully which provides important instruction for how we are called to worship him still today–in spirit and in truth, according to the Scriptures. Every preaching pastor and worship pastor should get this book and read it immediately.”
