"This will be the first book I give people--or turn to myself--on the practice of understanding, planning, and leading in corporate worship."I certainly enjoyed Chapell's Christ-Centered Preaching, so I am looking forward to reading this.
- Tim Keller, senior pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church; author of The Reason for God
"Destined to become one of the best resources available for improving the practice of Christian worship."
- Philip Ryken, senior minister, Tenth Presbyterian Church, PA
"An astonishingly helpful book. It is theologically rich, especially when it comes to showing, in detail, how the nature of the gospel ought to shape our public services. . . . No one will agree with everything he has written here, but only the most ignorant could not profit enormously from this thoughtful and stimulating book."
- D. A. Carson, research professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

If the blurbs mean anything (and they don't always!), Bryan Chapell's new book, Christ-Centered Worship: Letting the Gospel Shape Our Practice, should be worth reading and contemplating.
