Being a small book pages this is a quick and easy read. Tozer's descriptions of the attributes of were powerful and clearly coming from a place of real passion.
Based on this small sample I'm definitely interested in reading his popular title "The knowledge of the Holy". However, overall I wouldn't recommend this book. I have a hard time reading those who choose to start from a place of negativity, what is "wrong" with something.

I'd suggest "Vertical Worship" for someone looking for concrete actions to take towards Christ-centered worship. There are many helpful statements throughout this book.
For example, "Jesus was born of a virgin, suffered under Pontius Pilate, died on the cross and rose from the grave to make worshippers out of rebels! George D. Watson] urged that we go on from gratefulness to a love of God just because He is God and because of the excellence of His character. Although a discerning reader who is very familiar with the Bible may be able to connect Tozer's thinking to specific passages, Tozer speakers in such a way that might convince the average reader that he has arrived at these conclusions apart from Scripture.
I would not recommend this resource on worship. Mar 10, Akash Ahuja rated it it was ok Shelves: christian-worship. The tagline for this book reads, "A Call to True Worship". I don't think that this book did that at all, as Tozer is quite content pointing out every issue he has with Christian worship, while also offering little in the ways of solutions. I saw Tozer contradict himself in one section, he says that science should stay in its field, and he'll stay in his own, and in the next few pages, he berates scientists and inappropriately speaks into their work.
I saw apologetically fundamentalist evangeli The tagline for this book reads, "A Call to True Worship". I saw apologetically fundamentalist evangelical theology "This is the glad truth: God is my God". This book was honestly a waste of my time. I learned very little from it, except that I know that I will be more skeptical of Tozer the next time I hear a quote or receive a recommendation to look at another one of his books.
May 31, Jeremy rated it it was amazing. This is a classic book on worship that should be read and re-read. It is just as relevant for today and tomorrow as it was for when it was written. I must admit that I don't immediately agree with every statement that Tozer makes. However, it is more likely that his statements are just so strong and loaded that I just need to work through them some more.
I gave this book 5 stars because Tozer makes you think. He drives you back to "The Word" and he asks honest but hard questions while confrontin This is a classic book on worship that should be read and re-read.
He drives you back to "The Word" and he asks honest but hard questions while confronting problems with current thoughts on worship. This is a book that I will continue to re-read on a regular basis. Oct 15, Regina Ripamonti rated it really liked it. Very helpful book on true worship. Loved it. View 1 comment. Jun 10, Miranda rated it it was amazing. Like anything else by Tozer, deeply devotional, and amazing.
Jul 11, Matthew Prydden rated it it was amazing Shelves: general-theology. I'd put this right up there with The Pursuit of God as one of Tozer's best and most challenging works. We were made to worship God, and when we lost this because of sin we were redeemed to worship to God, and yet its still so easy to lose sight of true worship and this book was written to address that very thing, and seeks in some way to bring us back to fuller, richer and more life-encompassing worship of God.
Some good thoughts and points but found the writing to be quite disjointed. This book is very thought provoking and sound. A great start on the Philosophy of Worshiping the almighty. Tozer is one of those prophetic voices that speaks throughout the ages.
I was first exposed to him with his seminal work The Pursuit of God, another must read. He is, quite simply, one of the most influential spiritual mentors in my life. In Whatever Happened to Worship?

It includes three articles on worship that was written in the Alliance Witness which he was editor from to and originally appeared in The Advance , the Association of Gospel Church's trade publication.
I had bought this book because 1. I was interested in the subject and b. I was interested in what Tozer had to say on it. I found myself skimming through it for a teaching when I suddenly found I had read 40 of the pages of the book.
I finished it in three days. I don't give many 5-star reviews but if a book arrests my attention to where I can't pull myself away from the truths within it, then it deserves that rating. This is one of those books.
It is simply fantastic and an absolute must read. In chapter 2, he highlights the biblical reality that no one can worship God rightly without being born again.
