Sproul's New Book

R. C. Sproul has a new book out on worship:

In A Taste of Heaven, Dr. R. C. Sproul searches the Scriptures, finding timeless principles from the worship practices of the Old Testament to guide worship today. God intends worship to be an unforgettable encounter between Himself and His people - a joyous experience engaging the worshiper's entire being.

    The stuff on worship from the Ligonier conference this year was phenomenal. This has to be good.

    Stan, thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    I think that anything Sproul writes would be good!

    I wish that I'd gotten this comment in sooner but I was over at Carrie's blog ... 'nuff said.

    Oooh, love that pdf excerpt feature at WTS Books. Quite a number of pages offered. I'm glad he thinks that high liturgy is biblical.

    On my profile, I list liturgiology among my interests, but the first time I heard the word "liturgical" was after inviting a fellow Campus Crusade acquaintance to Mass. He said, "The service will be liturgical, right?" And I was like, "Yeah, I suppose so, what else is there?"

    Anyway, he was a good egg, loving and humble, and attended Mass with me and my friends on several occasions and never had a bad thing to say about it.

    But prayer books - BCP, LOTH - not folded sheet bulletins or even disposable misslettes. I bring my own missal. I can't even stomach the paperback hymnals tucked into our pews.

    But, I'll tell you, the other featured book this month looks just as interesting because last summer when I attended a class on the New Perspective, Sister's hasty conclusion on the last day wasn't very satisfying. She said, "Luther's doctrine on justification is our doctrine on justification, so if Luther falls, we fall." I think she oversimplified.
    michele said...
    She said that???? She accepts Luther's doctrine on justification? Because you know, that was why he was kicked out of your church.
    Moonshadow said...
    Yes, yes, that's what she said -- Luther's doctrine on justification is our doctrine on justification. I hear language approaching that often enough, but hers was the most unmistakable yet.

    And I attended the class with the intention of hearing Luther discredited. Boy, was I disappointed!
