In the common practice of Christian churches, across many traditions, a call to worship is typically a few lines of Scripture (or a combination of Scripture texts) expressed at the beginning of a church service. The call to worship exhorts God s people to turn from worldly distractions and to focus hearts, minds and actions on revering him. If you are involved with leading worship in the church or in the home your next question will be Where do I go to find them Fortunately, Robert Vasholz has done the leg-work for you in this book. The first section is designed to address specific events common to the Church such as Christmas, Easter, etc. The second section pertains to calls to worship that ask for an audible response from God s people. The third part offers a number of calls to worship from the minister alone. It is my honest desire that this will serve as a proper and dignified way to enhance public corporate worship and to invite God s people to be attentive to the service that follows.
With a scriptural call to worship God invites us by his Word to join the worship of the ages and angels. God does not simply invite us to a party of friends, or a lecture on religion, or a concert of sacred music - he invites us into the presence of the King of the Universe before whom all creation will bow and for whom all heaven now sings. -- Bryan Chapell, President, Covenant Theological Seminary, St Louis, Missouri "Endorsement"
