Worship in today's church takes place beneath the shroud of a dangerous and far-reaching myth - that worship is an experience meant for our own personal gratification and that it occurs only on Sunday mornings within a church service. Revolve challenges lay people to understand the truth about worship - that it revolves around God, t us, and that worship is something we can perform with our whole lives, t just an hour a week in church. With Revolve, readers will see that when they approach worship with a what can I get out of this attitude, they're bound to be disappointed. However, worship of God as a way of life t only hours God but also satisfies our souls. Built-in action steps at the end of each short chapter will give readers specific ideas about how to refocus their attention on God and live each day in an attitude of worship.
