Worship, Liturgy, and Praise
Rodrigo Zablah has compiled a new edition of “Restoring Praise & Worship to the Church” introducing a fresh understanding and insight to worship leaders and individual worshipers.
The book is divided into five parts;
Part One describes “The Zion Heart,” “The Song of the Lord,” and “Singing the Scriptures.”
Part Two introduces God’s Plan for Praise and Worship.
Part Three outlines God’s Purpose for Praise and Worship.
Part Four explains God’s Design for Praise and Worship.
Part Five emphasizes God’s Desire for Praise and Worship.
The Psalms of David reflect Zion’s heart. Praise, singing, and rejoicing are all present in those who have a Zion’s heart. John Eckhardt and Kevin Leal illustrate how we can emulate the heart of David; leading the reader to experience new levels of worship from the heart.
Rodrigo reminds worship leaders that worship brings freedom. The presence of God rests in those who have a Zion heart. Rodrigo foresees a new movement of revival ignited by God through a new generation ready to receive the manifestation of His glory.
Bob Sorge brought new light on the full purpose of worship within the church service. As I join others in church Sunday, I want to worship and minister to the Lord. I want to minister to others. to experience God’s presence and to be sensitive to His voice.
I want to emphasize the importance of this book for worship leaders and individual worshipers, eager to experience the power of true worship. I highly recommend Restoring Praise & Worship to church leaders and worshippers of all denominations.
