Item description for Recalling the Hope of Glory: Biblical Worship from the Garden to the New Creation by Allen Ross...
Overview Recalling the Hope of Glory moves beyond worship wars over style and denominational proclivities to consider the heart of true worship - to recall and celebrate the hope of glory. This book looks at the many biblical events and teachings that develop this central focus of worship. Throughout the book, Ross emphasizes the integral issue of who we worship...and why. Pastors, worship leaders, and lay peole interested in the biblical themes of worship - regardless of their denomination - will benefit from this definitive resource.
Moving beyond worship wars over style and denominational proclivities, Allen Ross has completed an extensive study of the biblical material that informs the heart of true worship: "to recall and celebrate the hope of glory." Much more than a biblical theology of worship, Recalling the Hope of Glory is an inductive study of the Bible, showing how the many biblical events and teachings develop the central focus of worship.
Beginning not with early Israelite worship, but with creation itself, this work uncovers the glories and beauty of true worship as it is progressively revealed from its beginning in the Garden to its climax in the new heavens and new earth. Throughout the book, the focus is on the integral issue of who we worship . . . and why. Ross then applies these discoveries to the contemporary Christian practice and debate.
Recalling the Hope of Glory stands to become a definitive resource for the pastor, worship leader, and those training for the ministry. Regardless of their denomination, readers will appreciate the author's high view of Scripture and just how much it can and should inform Christian worship.

A woderful book. Mar 8, 2007
This is a book that every Christain should read. It is truely a wonderful read.
I was led into the thrown room of God Jan 19, 2007
For several years, something has been missing in my life--this book has shown me exactly what that is. Genuine, heart-felt worship. The book is well written. It opens up the entire scripture (along with early church history) and leads the reader right to the feet of Jesus--and thats where I found I needed to be. For the most part, it is instructional, but has many moments which are magnifiicent and which stirred in me that "knowing" that I already know but have forgotten or let grow dim. My thanks to the author for helping me to be reminded.
Masterful! Dec 19, 2006
Prior to reading, I was familiar with Allen Ross (Holiness to the Lord), but this was the first Ross title I've read. Overall, I think it's a masterful study. I was skeptical on whether it would really be a book for all Christians, "regardless of tradition." Really, there are very few theological biases that enter the book. Ross's central concern is to understand the development of worship in the Bible. He admits that all denominations do things well, and his purpose is not to make one change denominations, etc. I truly think all Christians with appreciate this book, and glean great insights. Ross, himself, is somewhat difficult to pen down. He's Episcopal, but in the past has been Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian. He approaches many issues from a Reformed point of view, but I think Arminian and Catholic readers would get a lot out of this book.
