About "Recalling the Hope of Glory"
^Moving beyond worship wars over style and denominational proclivities, Allen Ross has completed an extensive study of the biblical material that informs the heart of true worship: "to recall and celebrate the hope of glory."

What are the essential elements of worship? Are you satisfied with your own personal worship and that of your church? Can we improve?

He points out that for any significant change to occur in our worship activities we need to get behind worship forms and methods and changes in style and focus on the biblical theology that instructs us in worship. He provides us with a methodical, detailed study on all the Bible has to say on the subject of worship. He begins with worship in the Garden of Eden, through early Israelite worship, worship in the early church, the development of liturgy during the more recent centuries, to its climax in the new heavens and the new earth. The book is divided into ten parts. After each section is a helpful conclusion and some probing questions that may challenge what we are doing now.
