by Next Level Worship

Review of The Worshiping Artist by Rory Noland

by Next Level Worship

I really enjoyed reading The Worshiping Artist. Rory’s Scripture-rich explanations about worship and praise are clear and compelling. The Biblical emphasis on specific expressions to praise were refreshing to read, since few books on worship address those properly (if at all). Especially helpful and insightful were his three questions and chapters: Who is God, Who am I, and…
