This call for the doxological reformation of the church is offered to “ministers who lead their congregations in worship, musicians who seek a deeper understanding of the spiritual purpose of their work, [and] seminary students who are clarifying their commitment to biblical worship..."

Give Praise to God continues the legacy of James Montgomery Boice by examining the biblical foundations for worship, the warranted elements of corporate worship, worship in the home and in all of life, and worship throughout the ages.

“The list of fine scholars who have contributed to this volume is tribute itself to the astonishing influence of Dr. Boice and the high regard in which he was held by the Reformed community throughout the world. The volume is not only a fitting memorial to Dr. Boice, however, it also makes a significant contribution to our understanding to Christian worship."  — The Rev Professor A.T.B. McGowan Highland Theological College, Scotland

"A Reformed view of the various nuances of worship – its place in the Bible, the elements which give it legitimacy, the personal and affective aspects of worshipping God, as well as its place in the history of the church – has been lacking in the literature. . . It is fitting tribute to the legacy of Jim Boice, and a timely call to the people of God everywhere."  — Rev. Dr. Iain D. Campbell Minister, Free Church of Scotland, Back, Isle of Lewis, Scotland
