- Theological Vision for Worship and the Sacraments, Liturgical Series
In this invitingly written, deeply joyful book, Joyce Ann Zimmerman makes Scripture her foundation as she explores the meaning and purpose of authentic Christian worship today.
Intended for Christian communities across the denominational spectrum, Worship with Gladness will appeal to a wide audience of pastors, worship leaders, college students, and lay readers.
Zimmerman discusses such subjects as worship and liturgy, the common elements of worship that carry across denominational boundaries, what Scripture tells us about participating in worship, and how authentic worship expresses itself in daily living. Throughout the book Zimmerman encourages readers not only to better understand worship but to better understand — and rejoice in — the One we worship.
Each section of the book concludes with thoughtful prompts that will encourage readers to reflect on and apply what Zimmerman discusses. And at every turn she encourages all who worship God to come with open and truly thankful hearts.
