“A significant contribution. As a theologian, I believe that worship must be at the heart and center of all that we are, all that we do, and all that we write. This volume helps us to focus on this fundamental priority while also reminding us that God is concerned with the form and content of our worship.- A. T. B. McGowanSee All
“Any book dedicated to the memory of James Boice would have to be marked by sanctified scholarship, solid biblical content, and warm pastoral application These essays from the pens of his friends and fellow soldiers in the cause of the gospel meet that standard. Reading this material I found my mind being stretched and my heart stirred.”- Alistair BeggSee All

“A Reformed view of the various nuances of worship—its place in the Bible, the elements which give it legitimacy, the personal and affective aspects of worshipping God, as well as its place in the history of the church—has been lacking in the literature. This has finally been rectified with a volume that will stimulate discussion and inform the church”- Iain D. CampbellSee All

“If one thing is synonymous with the memory of James Boice, it is his passion for worship. Those who experienced firsthand the way he conducted worship in Tenth Presbyterian Church, as much as those who only saw it from a distance through his writings and tapes, could not fail to be struck by this dominant concern. Its impact was both God-exalting and soul-up-lifting. That is worship at its best, and this volume is a fitting exposition of what it entails in its richest essence.”See All

This call for the doxological reformation of the church is offered to “ministers who lead their congregations in worship, musicians who seek a deeper understanding of the spiritual purpose of their work, [and] seminary students who are clarifying their commitment to biblical worship....”
Give Praise to God continues the legacy of James Montgomery Boice by examining the Biblical foundations for worship, the warranted elements of corporate worship, worship in the home and in all of life, and worship throughout the ages.
