I’ve got a new Kindle book coming out, “WORSHIP ACTIONS & ATTITUDES: Understanding 10 Hebrew Words for Praise”. It is a very quick and easy read.Â I wrote it in response to the large interest shown for Hebrew praise words from my earlier blog post.
Understanding the Biblical foundations of “why we do the things we do” in worship is so very important. It’s vital to worshiping “in spirit and in truth.”
Having a deep appreciation for the original meaning behind these ancient Hebrew praise words can profoundly shape the way you worship.
The Kindle book edition of Â Â “WORSHIP ACTIONS & ATTITUDES: Understanding 10 Hebrew Words for Praise”Â explores the topic much deeper and expands beyond my original article (and much of the free stuff you’ll randomly find on the internet), in four substantial ways:
First, each word is presented:
- With the original Hebrew symbol;
- Â The number of times it appears in scripture;
- Â The corresponding reference number from Strongâ€™s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible. (You can further reference these at a website such as BlueLetterBible.org for more research.)
Second, there are at least three Scriptural references for each word using them in context.
Third, I’ve condensed and modernized the translations for simplicity and clarity.
Finally, I share Practical Application Tips for each expression from my personal worship leading experience. This may be the most insightful part of the book for worship leaders and planners.
My hope and prayer is that having a deeper understanding of Godâ€™s word through this study will inspire and invigorate your expressions of praise and worship!
