The St Andrews Seven is the moving and inspiring story of six young men whose remarkable influence on one another as fellow students in the University of St Andrews, Scotland, in the 1820s led them to the profound conviction that 'Only one thing seemed to matter: to discover God's will and do it'. The chief characters in this extraordinary account of a teenage enthusiasm to serve Christ to the end of the earth are the great Thomas Chalmers, and six of his students: Alexander Duff, John Urquhart, John Adam, Robert Nesbit, William Sinclair Mackay, and John Ewart. Their influence in later life, especially in India, was to be far beyond their wildest expectations.

Scripture itself is full of musical and poetic praises dedicated to the Lord. Using a unique combination of songs and reflections, the NIV Worship Together Bible blends modern-day worship and culture with the beloved Word of God. This Bible helps you embrace God as your loving Father and shows you how to exalt him through song and reflection. The musical inspiration in this Bible will remind you of the importance of constantly striving to be Christlike. As Pastor Jack Hayford, the author of the song “Majesty,” once put it: “Worship changes the worshiper into the image of the One worshiped.” Features: • The complete text of the world’s most popular modern-English Bible, the NIV • Lyrics to the top 100 worship songs • Song notes and reflections from the songwriters • Simple chord charts for the Top 20 worship songs • Essay that explores the purpose and history of worship music • Foreword by Matt Maher • Index to organize songs by scriptural reference

Need some revitalization of your worship service with more involvement on the part of the congregations? Or do you need more focus on the sermon subjects? This book may well be your answer. The 53 responsive readings in the book differ from the traditional approach. Here you may find the audience cast in various roles (such as in drama) where they will respond as a character in a story (such as in readers theatre). Good reading is easy to achieve (as in choral reading) and the audience gets to answer and suggest corporately (as in traditional responsive readings). The audience may play the fool, the pharisee, the publican, God, the believer, or the skeptic. At all times we worked at keeping the responses short so that the long monotony of untrained reading would be avoided, and a minimum of rehearsal instruction would be needed to have maximum expression. Both youth and adults have enjoyed these responsive readings. We think your congregation will as well!!

This book offers an introduction to worship from the standpoint of process theology. It helps worship planners develop services of worship that are characterized by an intense vision of community with God, where depth of feeling surmounts verbal language and touch the believer in the most life-shaping ways. Process conceptuality allows the church to move toward genuinely contemporary worship while drawing from the past, explaining how worship is understood in this Christian tradition and moving to practical approaches such as conceiving the service, preparing the prayers, the liturgy, and the sermon; the sacraments, the wedding and the funeral, and the arts' role in worship. The ultimate goal is not only to show how process theology can inform each aspect of the service of worship, but to help the Christian community deepen its apprehension of God through services of worship.
