Book Review: The Lost Art of Pure Worship by James Goll and Chris Dupre
This book actually has six authors or contributors. That is not a bad thing, especially in this case. Sometimes when there are multiple authors it feels like each chapter is a separate essay and feels totally disjointed. This book did not!
It did not “flow” as much as it could have if it had only one author but it came extremely close! There was more than a thread of continuity but there was a unity of spirit and a clear progression of the topic. Considering the number of authors involved I thought that part was excellent!
This book is about worship, so of course it tells you some things to do in that regard but it is also much more than that. The Lost Art of Pure Worship will renew, freshen and deepen your hunger for God. Who doesn’t want that?
Everything from James Goll carries what I call a “holy desire anointing”. I would call Mr. Goll “salty”—very salty. You know, like when you go out to eat and have something very salty like a bowl of soup and then shortly after that you feel extremely thirsty for water and can’t seem to get enough. In the spirit, this is especially good if you know ahead of time that you want to feel thirsty—thirsty for God—and unmistakable as to for what—for God Himself, not merely for His gifts or His blessings but for Himself. That is what I call perfect saltiness. This book has that.
One other very specific thing this book did for me was to give me permission to sing out loud to the Father even if He would be the only one who would enjoy it (which is most likely).
Do you have a desire to worship God more? Do you need to get the desire to worship God? This book will deliver.
