Free $20 eBook – The Great Commission to Worship: Biblical Principles for Worship-Based Evangelism by David Wheeler and Vernon Whaley.
Based on the rapid decline in evangelism statistics, the sad part is that so-called believers appear to be content with this disconnect in reference to their faith, thus allowing for outward expressions of worship with little regard to what it means to be a multiplying disciple of Christ. After generations of allowing this anemic expression of worship to exist with little or no challenge from Christian leaders, the result has been the normalizing of an impotent faith that ignores the Great Commission in favor of reducing worship to an emotional act of personal expression.
The Great Commission to Worship looks closely at the intertwining relationship between worship and evangelism as the foundation for the fulfillment of the Great Commission. Authors David Wheeler and Vernon Whaley cite Scripture to explain “The Mandate of Worship and the Great Commission” and then show how worship—in relation to the Great Commission—is formational, transformational, relational, missional, commissional, and reproducible. Each chapter includes five “life questions” for reader reflection while the book concludes with steps for practical application and ten principles for developing “lifestyle worship evangelism.”
