Book Review: "Worship Changes Everything"

In the final chapter of her new book, Worship Changes Everything, Darlene Zschech says, “My prayer is that God, through the teaching and inner working of the Holy Spirit, will use Worship Changes Everything to deepen, widen, strengthen, and nourish you in worship; to help you live, love, pray, praise, work, walk, serve, give, overcome—to breathe—in the presence of God.”

A few paragraphs later, she continues, “I pray that your heart will be stirred by the glory and presence of Jesus, and that with every fiber of your being you will recognize and acknowledge that He alone is worthy of all our praise.” If you long to learn how to live with a continual awareness of God’s presence and with a heart that worships Him all day long, Darlene wrote this book to encourage you.

Part One: The Heart of Worship was my favorite part of the book. These six chapters were all about Who God Is and why He Is worthy of our worship, praise, and gratitude. They led me into worship as I read. Part Two: The Hands of Worship was more practical, telling readers how to worship not only at church but also through every aspect of life, looking toward eternity. Both sections contain relevant Scripture references, Darlene’s personal experiences, and quotes from well-known Christian leaders, both historical and contemporary, to help readers understand each of Darlene's points.

If developing a heart of worship is something you want to learn more about, I recommend this book to you. Bethany House Publishers sent me a complimentary copy in exchange for this honest review.
