內容簡介 "We are saved to worship God. All that Christ has done for us in the past and all that He is diong now leads to this one end." -- A. W. TozerTozer had strong convictions about the subject of worship, as well as its corruption by what he called "the great god Entertainment." The excerpts in this book were carefully selected to give you a clear picture of his thoughts on both topics: Worship: Unacceptable Worship, Spiritual Concentration, The Presence of God, the Power of God, Personal Communion, Adoration, HymnsEntertainment: Evangelical Heresy, Propoganda, An Outward Shift, Modern Evangelism, Religious Activity, WorldlinessAlso included are Tozer's sermon "The Act and Object of Worship" in its entiretiy and his controversial essay "The Menace of the Religious Movie," written in the mid-1950s. You might not agree with all that Tozer says, but, as always, he draws a line in the sand and causes us to think critically about what is and isn't worship, and if what we are doing is truly worship.
