"Gareth Goossen describes worship as entailing more than music, as entailing all of life. To that one can only say a hearty 'Amen.' But he does more than this, for he not only describes the goal of worship, doing so in a very down-to-earth way, but he also gives us the practical steps for progressing towards that goal. Worship does involve all of life, and I warmly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in entering into this reality." Dr. Peter H. Davids, author, pastor, professor, and New Testament scholar "At the very heart of worship is our longing to know and love God! Worship Walk helps bring us back to that heart in a compelling way! There are many powerful truths covered in this book I love the way Gareth helps us to remember the truth of the cost of worship. God is more committed to forming his character in us than he is in providing for our comfort. This book is a timely reminder of what worship is all about and how we are to walk it out in our lives." Brian Doerksen, world-renowned songwriter and worship leader "Worship Walk is an amazing manual for Christian living. Gareth has taken foundational aspects of Christianity and shown them through the lens of worship. As a worship leader who has also found great joy in worshipping God through things in addition to music (mountain biking, for one), I found this book to be very affirming but also very challenging!"

Sunday morning services - Bible readings, the sermon and the wonderful music. What is your favorite part - the music - the sermon? Many come for the music to get in the spirit, but is that all there is to living for God? What about the rest of the week, the rest of the month or the rest of your life?

Worship Walk by Gareth Goossen explains what we have always accepted as worship, then walks us through what real worship is. It is not just the music, and Gareth show how worship should encompass all of daily life. A must read for anyone who wants a real Worship Walk with God.

Worship Walk is eye opening to say the least and I will never think of worship in the same way.

I did recieve a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. ( )

In a world constantly besieged by parochial and superficial views, we often find ourselves in the throes of equating music with worship. This tendency is not confined to one specific group of believers, but, sadly enough, it is a worldwide spectacle. It must be understood that while music constitutes one important aspect of worship which contributes to our worship, it is not the final word. While our understanding of worship is lopsided, the Bible is pointedly clear on the issue: We must worship in spirit and truth!

To help Christians better understand what it means to worship and directs them to true worship, Gareth J. Goossen, who has conducted workshops and seminars on the theme of worship, offers relevant and practical insights in his book Worship Walk: Where Worship and Life Intersect.

Worship Walk is a three-part book with practical steps to show how one’s life and worship should come together, and how one should live out the life meant to be lived as a true worshipper. The first part entitled Getting Started details the essence of true worship. The second part Walking It Out offers practical steps to help the life of a true worshipper. And the final part is Tying Up the Loose Ends which sums up the entire book.

A careful study of the book teaches that worship is not about us, it is not a way of life, not entertainment or what many of us wrongfully perceived as a weekly activity.

Then what is worship? Gareth points out that worship is about God, an intense longing to know and love Him, cultivate a deeper relationship with God, and the ultimate desire and conscious effort to get close to Him as far as humanly possible. It is living your life as worship to God. At the heart of all true worship is the humble submission before God which engages all of our being, and not just the praises we offered through singing.

Worship Walk: Where Worship and Life Intersect is a must-read book, containing insightful and practical truths, which is a timely reminder of what worship is all about and how we are to walk it out in our lives. ( )

Worship changes who we are as we pursue who God is.

This opening sentence is a descriptive prelude to all that Gareth shares from his heart in this compelling book on worship. Many people confine worship to what they experience on Sunday morning, specifically the music. But this book's subtitle - "where worship and life intersect" - expresses an important truth.

I have been involved in local church worship ministry for over 50 years, and I initially thought that Worship Walk would just be another book among many written on the topic of worship. However, I was pleasantly surprised to be quickly caught up in the various aspects of our daily lives that Gareth spotlights "through the lens of worship," as Kevin Boese wrote in his endorsement. And that's exactly how it should be, as worship encompasses all of life - not just music and not just worship services. Someone once said that if worship doesn't take place Monday through Friday, then it will never happen on Sunday.

Corporate and private worship are intertwined, but I like this book's emphasis on worship that takes place outside the doors of the church. Gareth writes in a comfortable style that is easy to understand, and includes Scripture references and personal examples.

Chapter 6, which focuses on silence, is one of my favorites. I had to smile when he talked about our efforts today to have no dead space during the service, for that is exactly what we've done. "There was a time when silence and reflection were part of the gathered worship experience - meditating on a Scripture passage, silent prayer, time to wait quietly and allow God to speak. And when he did, there was time to wrestle with and respond to his prompting." Gareth goes on to mention being drawn to the echoing silence of stone walls in European cathedrals. I've been blessed to visit some of these beautiful cathedrals myself and have experienced exactly what he describes: "There are many factors that give the feeling of awesomeness: the age of the building, the height of the ceilings, the architecture, the artwork, the stained glass. But more than that, there is a sense of silence, of quiet reflection. People who walk into the building talk in hushed whispers." Is a time of reflective silence missing in our churches today? I definitely think so.

I also have to mention an inspiring little exercise that Gareth encourages us to do in Chapter 12. Referring to the last line of "Shout to the Lord" that says, "Nothing compares to the promise I have in you," Gareth asks: " What promises make you want to shout out in praise?" Here are some of the answers he gives:

Heb 13:5 - Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.
John 14:3 - I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.
1 John 4:4 - The one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.
Rom 8:38-39 - Nothing will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Worship Walk is a book that I will come back to often. It would even work well for Bible study or quiet times. I am glad to recommend this book to every reader.

I'll close with a few impactful quotations from Worship Walk:

"Worship draws our attention from ourselves to God, enabling us to begin to see things from his perspective."

"As the church has become more comfortable within itself, confession has been pushed aside."

"As we grow in prayer, we begin to wrestle with who we really are before a holy God - not who we carefully allow others to see."

"True worship, like true worshippers, never stays in the church."

"Confession is worship that frees and heals us."

"Our time of freedom of expression and worship is coming to an end - even in our tolerant society - because the one thing tolerant societies cannot stand are absolutes."

This is a lovely book which could be used for devotion or small group study. I am finding it inspirational in my own devotions. Goossen provides many convicting insights into how we perceive and conduct worship in a musical meeting setting in contrast to the life of worship we are called to. My single criticism is a leaning towards quoting and reference to scripture with little exposition of those scriptures, but nevertheless an excellent inspirational book. Although I enjoy and use Church bands such as Hillsong, Jesus Culture and Planet Shakers in my walk, I can wholeheartedly recommend this book as it highlights a definite need and worrying trend in recent decades to value 'spiritual feeling' and musical 'worship' in a meeting over lifestyle and action in the Christian life.

I was given this book free of charge from Bookfun.org for my honest review.
