Very few books have stirred me in recent years as much as Bruce Ware’s magnificent book, which sets forth the glory of the providence of God in all its majesty.
The Forgotten Christ
This excellent book is both mind-stretching and heart-warming as six different authors present their papers on themes centred in the mystery of the incarnation of the Lord Jesus Christ.
I have read several books on worship but Bob’s is probably the most thorough. His goals and objectives as a worship leader are excellent and I certainly encourage all elders and worship leaders to read the book.
Father, Son and Holy Spirit
‘The doctrine of the Trinity,’ as Bruce Ware argues, ‘is one of the most important distinguishing doctrines of the Christian faith’ and not one that Christians do well to regard carelessly.
The Mission of God
This magnificent book not only displays a wonderful overview of the Bible’s grand narrative, it also provides profound motivation for faith, worship and expectation of inevitable blessing on a grand scale.
Vital Themes of Worship
This message by Terry Virgo was recorded at the Leaders’ Conference, Johannesburg, South Africa, October 2008
John Newton, From Disgrace to Amazing Grace
Brilliantly told, Jonathan Aitken’s magnificent biography of John Newton has all the pace of a novel and unfolds the substantial drama of a man rescued from all kinds of excesses, including being the captain of a slave ship with all its associated evils.
Robin Parry particularly highlights our lack of Trinitarian worship in that he discovers that our focus is often narrow, self-centred and perhaps lacking the kind of depth that many traditional hymns have formerly provided.
Grass under my feet
While recently in South Africa I was standing in a circle with a group of leaders worshipping God in the open air. My eyes were closed. We were singing songs and I realised that the only unusual sensation I was feeling was that grass was under my feet.
