SYNOPSIS : This book proposes new and comprehensive chiastic structures as well as new unifying themes for the often-neglected New Testament letters of 1 Peter, 2 Peter, and Jude. In accord with these structures, which organize the oral performance of these letters in a context of communal worship, the subtitle of the book, Worship Matters, expresses the letters' main concern. By worship is meant not only liturgical worship but also the ethical behavior that complements it for a holistic way of worshiping God. Matters refers not only to the matters or issues regarding worship in these letters but also to the fact that worship matters in the sense of making an all-important difference to Christian living, not only for the original audiences of letters, but equally for their contemporary audience. Accordingly, this book proposes that: 1 Peter exhorts its audience to worship for life, both present and eternal, through the sufferings of Jesus Christ; 2 Peter exhorts its audience to worship in the knowledge regarding the final coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; and Jude exhorts its audience to worship in the mercy and love of God through our Lord Jesus Christ.

SYNOPSIS : When a Christian believer's praise turns into worship, a great power is unleashed. "Praise, Worship, and Thanksgiving" seeks to inspire you to become a worshipper in order to understand that power. Author Audrey Eccleston shows how praise and worship were used as a weapon by the children of Israel in the Old Testament, under the leadership of Jehoshaphat, Daniel, and Joshua. She further explains that whenever praise and worship were used in this manner in Bible times, the awesome presence of God always brought sure victory to God's people. "Praise, Worship, and Thanksgiving" illustrates the steps you can take to become a worshipper. While fully describing what praise and worship are to Christians, Eccleston also offers guidance on why, how, and when to praise and worship God. She provides powerful truths from the Scripture for use by those who have faith in God and observations on the differences among praise and worship; the theory and practice of praise; and the theory and practice of worship and thanksgiving. "Praise, Worship, and Thanksgiving" presents a vital manual on worshipping to provide a full-scale "how to" course in all of the essentials.
