A Better Way: Rediscovering the Drama of God-Centered Worship by Michael Horton and published by Baker Books.
In this penetrating examination, Michael Horton introduces readers to worship as a magnificent theatrical presentation, with Jesus’ death and resurrection as the central plot and believers participating in the drama. Unfortunately, Horton contends, believers today have rewritten the script by neglecting to truly worship God, thus thrusting themselves into the starring role of their own ill-conceived production.
In A Better Way, he challenges readers to step out of that false limelight and learn to worship God accurately, with humility, as Scripture teaches. Biblical worship-a far cry from the entertainment-driven services and watered-down messages so common today-places the Lord front and center in readers’ lives through the proclamation of God’s Word and the receiving of sacraments. Readers will be pressed, prodded, and ultimately energized while reading A Better Way, for no other book presents God-centered worship as compellingly, nor teaches readers as clearly how they can enter into this life-changing practice.
