Darlene Zschech is one of the big names in the Hillsong music group, and if you’re like me and you went through high school youth group singing every single song that Hillsong United has ever put out, you likely already know who I’m talking about.
I’m part of the worship team at my church, and I’ve been involved in music ministry in various capacities since I was about 12. Or at least, that’s as far back as I remember it. I may even have been younger. SO when I saw a book about worship by Darlene Zschech, I was excited.
This book is filled with scripture references about worship — and not just about singing — but about just ascribing to God the worth that He is due. Why worship? Because He is worthy. I expected the references to David, but I didn’t see some of the discussions about Saul or Hosea coming as readily, and it’s been nice to have my eye drawn to places it isn’t normally on this topic. Zschech takes readers through the most practical way to worship I’ve heard — listen for God. Lean into God. Be aware of and in tune with His presence. After all, that’s what He wants from us, is our worship and our communion with Him.
I’ve enjoyed this book, as it’s a fresh and honest look at what worship looks like when it’s lived out through every moment of every day. I hope you’ll enjoy it, too.
I received this book through Graf-Martin Communications, Inc. and Baker Publishing Group, in exchange for an honest review. My opinions are my own, and I did enjoy this book.
