Current discussions about worship are often driven by pragmatics and personal preferences rather than by the teaching of Scripture. True worship, however, is our response to God's gracious revelation; in order to be acceptable to God, worship must be experienced on God's terms.
Respected Old Testament scholar Daniel Block examines worship in the Bible, offering a comprehensive biblical foundation and illuminating Old Testament worship practices and principles. He develops a theology of worship that is consistent with the teachings of Scripture and is applicable for the church today. He also introduces readers to a wide range of issues related to worship. The book, illustrated with diagrams, charts, and pictures, will benefit professors and students in worship and Bible courses, pastors, and church leaders.
Daniel Block is an Old Testament scholar and is Gunther H. Knoedler Professor of Old Testament at Wheaton College in Wheaton, IL. He previously taught at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary as the John R. Sampey Professor of Old Testament Interpretation. Block has a DPhil (1982) from Liverpool University and an MA (1973) from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. Block's two-volume commentary on the Book of Ezekiel is a standard in Old Testament scholarship.
