Excellent book Mar 4, 2007
Loved this eye-opening book on worship! It led me to Worship Warrior by Chuck Pierce! Even more awesome!
Classic Hayford! Oct 8, 2003
Pastor Jack's practical, down-to-earth, and up-to-Heaven approach was refreshingly helpful and balanced. His understanding of the importance of traditional church music as well as modern music is balanced, fair, and helpful. Pastor Jack's experience as a musician and pastor are inspiring. I found the humility and honesty portrayed in this book equally inspiring and hope to genuinely model and teach the importance of living a life of worship. Pastoral leaders must be informed about the philosophy of worship if they are to properly lead. This book certainly serves its purpose of helping pastors and students to develop a biblical philosophy of worship.

Insightful book about modern worship Jul 18, 2001
First off, I must admit that I enjoy reading Jack Hayford's books. He takes a very common sense approach to the Bible, Christianity, and faith. I think that he does a better job than most other pastors of giving practical insight into Christian concepts. In this book, his focus is worship and how it can change our lives.
I enjoyed this book the most because it is a no nonsense explanation of worship. Basically, Dr. Hayford is hoping that this book will help start a reformation of worship in today's Church. Throughout the book, he tries to confront many traditional notions about worship, and its role for the believer, and the Church. In some ways, this book may challenge you, especially if you come from a very traditional denomination. I know that in my case it has made me take a hard look at my role in daily worship, and during church services.
Dr. Hayford's basic premise is that biblically based worship is the vital key to the success of any church. He goes into great detail about what worship is, and is not. Various topics he discusses include musical worship (songs), prayer, communion, and tithing. He uses various examples from the Bible (Abraham, David, Samuel, Peter, and Paul) to illustrate many of his points. Also, he tries to clarify misconceptions about worship that many believers (including myself) may have. For instance, he explains why worship is actually designed for our benefit, and not God's.
I highly recommend this book for anyone wanting to find out more about worship, and how it can impact your walk with God. I think that you will find this book stimulating, and cause you to examine your own worship practices and effectiveness.
Worship His Majesty: How Praising the King of Kings Will ... May 15, 2001
This book is great! I wonder why no one has written a review, after the time this book has spent in the market. The book took its theme from the famous song "Majesty", composed by the author himself, and tells about how worship is a two-way interaction between God and men. God is worthy of our worship, of course, but worship is not only meant for Him. God has made worship a way men can receive the blessings and fullness of life from God. The author took several significant examples from the bible, like the lives of Abraham, Moses, and David, and showed how worship had brought them to receive God's promises in their lives, despite their "humane" errors and limitations.
This book should be read by everyone who desired to know God more, and learns how he works in the lives of men through their worship. Hey, there's a whole lot of things we don't understand about worship. This book will shed some light to that. Praise God!!
