Aiming to Please: A Guide to Reformed Worship Paperback – 29 April 2020
Enhance your purchase
In Aiming to Please, Wes Bredenhof explains in his unique, readable style, how Reformed worship aims to help us please God more and more. All aspects of the service come under scrutiny: Is singing hymns biblical? Should the congregation say the votum? Why collection bags? Lord's Supper in the pews? And what about the role of organists, drums, the celebration of Christmas, and the use of projectors? Does covenant theology make a difference to how we worship? These topics and many more are addressed from the stance that we are not to worship God in any other manner than he has commanded in his Word.

Perhaps my favourite section of the book was his "Ten Reasons to Worship Twice" (Chapter 13, pp. 152-157). It will be my go to resource for those who are indifferent to, against, or just naive to why Reformed churches value worshipping twice on the Lord's Day. It also is thoroughly convincing on why every church member who belongs to a church where the elders call the congregation to worship twice on the Lord's Day should diligently attend the second service with joy, gratitude and eager expectation (aside from works of necessity/mercy and providential hindrances).
It would be a great book for Reformed office-bearers, church members, and even those non-Reformed Christians that are simply interested in better understanding worship in the Reformed tradition of the Christian faith. I also appreciated the helpful appendices that will aid ministers in leading the congregation in worship. Highly recommended!
