Across the spectrum of churches there seems to be a general vagueness about the God we worship and the purpose of worship in the first place. But do we have to settle for either dull routine or perpetual innovation?
In this penetrating examination of worship, Michael Horton demonstrates that there is a better way. Dig below the surface of today's worship wars and rediscover the biblical and theological foundations for a Christian understanding of worship. Only then, Horton contends, can we place Christ back on center stage and restore our unity as the people of God in the presence of God.
Whether you're a pastor, worship leader, or churchgoer longing to deepen your faith, A Better Way will help you rethink Christian growth and discipleship as it reveals the kind of dramatic, life-revitalizing worship for which you were created.
There is a distinct weariness with market-driven, showbiz worship. The pendulum has swung to the longing for transcendence, substance, challenge, and biblically driven worship. Michael Horton shows us the way. --Robert Webber, president, Institute for Worship Studies; author of Ancient-Future Faith
Horton's enlivening wisdom is surely a godsend to all evangelicals. --J. I. Packer, Regent College
