In his book For the Glory of God: Recovering Biblical Theology of Worship (Baker Academic), Daniel I. Block defines worship in such a way that it “involves reverential human acts of submission and homage before the divine Sovereign in response to his gracious revelation of himself and in accord with his will.” Therefore, Block argues, “any authentic Christian worship must aim toward the promotion of the worshiper’s awe and reverence for the one true and living God.”

In his annual survey of the past year’s best books for preachers, Al Mohler says: “The strength of this single volume is its combination of biblical theology and a keen heart for authentic worship. Any pastor will be exhilarated by its content, educated by Block’s scholarship, and made more competent and equipped to be faithful as a leader in Christian worship.”
