New book from Religious Affections Ministries: <i>Recovering Intentional Worship</i> by David de Bruyn

I am pleased to announce the publication of an instructive booklet by David de Bruyn titled, Recovering Intentional Worship: Some Things to Consider Including in Your Church Service.

If you are a regular reader of this blog, you will recognize the subtitle of David’s booklet as the title of a series he did on this site. I received such an influx of positive feedback about the series, including a few pastors who said they printed the whole thing for their congregation, that I thought it would be helpful to publish it as a booklet.

You can or wherever books are sold.

Look for the introduction to this booklet next week.
