Allen, D. Matthew & Reisinger, Ernest
Why is it important for men and women to worship God? Does the Bible provide principles that can guide Christians in their worship of God? What are the key elements in wholesome, balanced, church worship? Is there anything Christians should avoid in their worship services? Can we be sure that God is pleased with the worship we offer him?
These questions are taken up and answered in Worship: Its Priority, Principles, and Practice, J C Ryle’s spiritual, insightful, and practical study into the Bible’s teaching on this subject. In an age when there is so much confusion and controversy surrounding Christian worship, Ryle provides sincere Christians with guiding principles that are sure to lead to joyful, Spirit-filled, Christ-centred, and God-honouring worship.
J.C. Ryle (1816-1900) was appointed the first Bishop of Liverpool in 1880 and was the leader of the Evangelical party in the Church of England for more than half a century. He is highly regarded for his plain and lively writings on practical and spiritual themes, and their usefulness and impact have been consistently recognized and remain as wise and relevant today as when he first wrote them.
