Show synopsis All Christians worship God, but many do not fully understand what "worship" means. This insightful book by N. T. Wright explores both the meaning and the results of worship. In Part 1, titled "The God Who Is Worthy of Praise, " Wright focuses on God and on what worshipping God actually means. Wright celebrates the greatness and love of God as the ground and reason for worship and shows how reflection on who God actually is, especially as revealed in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, leads to true worship from both the heart and the mind. "Worship" derives from "worth-ship": it means giving God all he's worth. In Part 2, "Reflecting God's Image in the World, " Wright addresses a range of church-related issues that arise from the activity of worship. Because worship can never remain isolated from the task of the church, Wright here explores how true worship leads to the mission of the church in various specific ways.
