Coming Back to the Heart of Worship
By Robin A. Parry
Due for release 27/06/2013
At what point does worship cease to be Christian worship and become simply Christians worshipping?
If worship is God-centred, and God is the Trinity, then worship should be Trinity-centred. In this much needed exploration of contemporary Christian worship, Robin Parry evaluates the Christian religion and how much Christian worship actually focuses on the triune nature of God.
Having observed that the topic of God as Trinity is not mentioned in most worship services, Parry came to the conclusion that the subject is not given the attention it deserves. Christians, as Trinitarians, should understand the Trinity far better than they currently do; Trinitarian concepts should be integrated into all facets of worship —sermons, hymns, songs, and lived faith. This second edition of Worshipping Trinity is ideal for worship leaders, songwriters, church leaders, and anyone interested in theology. It provides the basis for appreciating why Christians need to understand the Trinity, and how this central tenet of Christianity can be incorporated into Christian worship. Parry explains the Trinity in light of the Bible and Christian life, and explores how every aspect of the faith – including prayer, worship, singing, and lament – should focus on it.
This book is a guide for those wishing to understand their faith better. Parry declares that Christians must understand the Trinity correctly to worship correctly, as ‘right belief’ is intimately connected to ‘right worship’. He hopes that reading this book will bring Christians closer to the heart of worship.
