“This book is a scholar’s gift to the church….Biblical scholars and theologians will appreciate his thorough study. Pastors and other worship leaders will wonder how they ever got along without it. We are all in his debt.” – John H. Walton, Wheaton College

“A study of worship that seeks a biblical theology and eschews mere pragmatism ….Readers will be surprised to encounter a Baptist scholar who espouses weekly celebration of the Lord’s Supper, the use of religious images, and the practice of prostration, by way of his thick readings of Scripture. Especially helpful is Block’s close attention to both Testaments and to the debates of church history.” – Edith M. Humphrey, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary
