In Spiritual Anorexia: How Contemporary Worship is Starving the Church, Dr. Doug Erlandson presents a balanced but devastating critique of the contemporary-style worship model and shows how this type of worship deprives Christians of the feast of true corporate worship. Drawing from personal experience and extensive research into the history of Christian worship, Dr. Erlandson analyzes the motivations for contemporary-style worship and assesses its strengths and weaknesses. He argues persuasively that corporate worship should be a dramatic presentation of the Gospel. Historically, Christian worship has included distinctive elements in making this presentation. These elements include the call to worship, recitation of the creeds, confession of sin, absolution, Christ-centered preaching and a benediction.

Is there a right way to pray? Does God only listen to those who are on bended knees with hands folded, heads bowed, and in reverently silent communication with Him? From many years of experiencing answered prayer, author and pastor D. Qwynn Gross offers insights to the most effective way to pray. Based on the prayer that Jesus taught His followers, the teaching in this book reveals personal and practical patterns needed to pray with insight, intention, and expectation as you present yourself before almighty God. This the way you should pray:Father in heaven, may Your name always be kept holy.May Your kingdom come….However, if you do not forgive people,then your Father will not forgive the wrong things which you have done (Matthew 6:9-14 PEB). Reciting the Lord s Prayer doesn t yield the meaning needed for application in real-life problems, nor does it offer real communion with God. Narration of the prayer only proves memory is strong understanding the prayer enables results.
