"Dr. Noel Due's work ...provides a thorough account, especially, of the worship of the patriarchs and that of the temple era. It does an excellent job of showing how Jesus fulfils Israel's worship. I have on a number of occasions wanted to have a book like this to assign to my seminary students in classes on worship, and I'm very grateful to Dr. Due for meeting that need in an excellent way." - John M. Frame, Professor of Systematic Theology and Philosophy, Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando, Florida
"Here, at last is a book about worship which truly honours and uplifts the Lord Jesus Christ as its central theme and object. Moving systematically through the whole of the Scriptures, Dr Due shows how worship provides both the fulfilment of our humanity and the focus of our sinful rebellion. Here is close scholarly observation, blended with sharp, contemporary relevance. It is a treasure-trove of insightful analysis of major themes, central doctrines and even whole or part books of the Bible, as they relate to 'the chief end of man'. This tour de force of Biblical theology is a gale of fresh spiritual air: it is brilliant." - David Jackman, engages in a worldwide ministry for Proclamation Trust, London
