    This book is needed to show the middle ground between two extreme beliefs about worship One side says that worship ONLY happens in the Sunday assembly, while the other groups says that the assemblies aren t about worship at all, but fellowship Both are false Hicks, Melton and Valentine invite us into what the assembly looks like, makes you look like, and will look like in heaven.

    This is an excellent book about worship which, in churches of Christ, shifts focus from traditional tomes on the topic Rather, it s meant to convey how the assembly of the church is a continuation of that from Israel s history anticipating eschaton and experiencing the real presence of God to the transformation of His people.

    A GATHERED PEOPLE is a refreshing look at our assembling before the Lord From the Garden through the Tabernacle, the Temple and the throne room of God this book explores what it means to be in the presence of our mighty God This book doesn t deal with the usual subject matter pertaining to acceptable worship, as much as it deals with the transforming effect that the assembly of God s people has on those that participate.I enjoyed reading this book very much It was nice to step back and look a A GATHERED PEOPLE is a refreshing look at our assembling before the Lord From the Garden through the Tabernacle, the Temple and the throne room of God this book explores what it means to be in the presence of our mighty God This book doesn t deal with the usual subject matter pertaining to acceptable worship, as much as it deals with the transforming effect that the assembly of God s people has on those that participate.I enjoyed reading this book very much It was nice to step back and look at the worship assembly with new eyes and to see what the Lord does when we assemble before HIm Our walk in Christ is all about transformation and a huge part of that transformation comes from being in the presence of our heavenly Father.If your looking for ameaningful time of worship with the saints on the Lord s day, A GATHERED PEOPLE may be a great tool of encouragement for you When we can come to see our worship time with a sense of anticipation rather than obligation then we will be open to the transformation that can occur when we gather together before our God.Leo J Woodman
