Matt Pastor’s new book “The Great Giver: A Philosophy of Worship” (published by CrossBooks) celebrates worship as demonstrated through excellence in the arts, obedience as a lifestyle and surrender to the Holy Spirit.
“This book is about a God who has always been in the business of saving, delivering, and healing,” Pastor writes. “It’s about His people who are to worship simply by doing whatever they must to get in His presence because He is just so good. It’s about becoming hosts of the Holy Spirit as we learn what parts of the kingdom need to be received as a little child and what parts need to be taken by violence.”
“The Great Giver” is more than just a book on worship, however. Pastor has combined his love for ministry with his musical talents to create a multifaceted experience for readers. A certified music teacher, Pastor studied electric bass with Victor Wooten, Bakithi Kumalo, Mike Pope, Mike Frost and other masters.
“I want people in the arts to leave with practical steps to increase in excellence, but I want all readers to leave with old mindsets challenged, with a new expectancy of what God can do,” Pastor says, “with principles that position them to see His goodness firsthand, and a hunger to encounter Him.”
