About "We Have Seen His Glory"
We Have Seen His Glory asks -- and answers -- the question of what worship would and should look like in light of the eschatological future, of kingdom come. Ben Witherington here contends that it cannot be a matter of merely continuing ancient practices. Instead, it must also be a matter of preparation for worship in the Kingdom of God when it comes on earth. / "I am convinced that one of the great problems to having a more reflective and more Christian approach to worship is that even many of our ministers and worship leaders have very little understanding of what the New Testament actually says about worship, what it is meant to be, what it entails, and what we ought to do. In this study I hope to remedy some of that problem and tease some minds into active thought about what worship should look like if we really believe that God's Kingdom is coming. . . . It is time for us to explore a more Biblical and Kingdom-oriented vision of worship." / -- Ben Witherington, from the prelude
