What’s the big deal about worship?

Do you view worship as a boring or simply required activity? If so, your worship may have the wrong focus. Perhaps you have yet to grasp what it is to appreciate the most creative, imaginative, awe-inspiring Being in the Universe.

Author James Pittman says that the human instinct to worship is inevitable, but much of what we call worship today is not really worship at all. “We worship what we love and value,” he writes, “but we value the wrong things. As these lesser gods topple one by one, our worship turns into disappointment, bitterness, and regret.”

That’s why James has written this booklet—to show us from the pages of the Bible what true worship is, where we should place our focus, and why proper worship is so vital to our becoming fully human.
