Clarity and freedom in worship expression that's grounded in scripture not necessarily in cultural traditions
South Orange, NJ (PRWEB) February 27, 2017
Errol T. Stoddart’s new book, The Silent Shout ($15.99, paperback, 9781498469777, $7.99, eBook, 9781498469784) addresses the impact of culture and socialization on worship responses. In many cultures we were taught to be quiet, avoid clapping or shouting in church. The Silent Shout takes the time to study Biblical worship responses that engage the entire being.
Stoddart says, “Clarity and freedom in worship expression that's grounded in scripture not necessarily in cultural traditions. While culture and tradition are essential to who we are, scripture supersedes all. There are people at both extremes of the spectrum who believe on the one hand that anything goes in worship as long as it's sincere; and on the other hand that worship should be so sterilized that very little in the way of physical engagement should be demonstrated. This book challenges many presuppositions and cultural norms that have stigmatized Christian worship expression as Eurocentric or Victorian. Christian worship should be based on clear Biblical examples and insights.”
