Worship Changes Everything by Darlene Zschech

“Worship,” Darlene Zschech says, “is our response to His majesty.” She goes on to say, “When God comes close, everything changes.”

Worship Changes Everything is, in a way, a worship manifesto. In it, Zschech defines worship, explores the foundations of worship, and illustrates what worship looks like on a practical level.

My only complaint is that the content felt too shallow. I was hoping for a deeper exploration of what it means to worship. But perhaps she covered that in a previous book (she has four). That said, she covered A LOT of information and insights that those who are newer to the faith may find life-altering. Those who are further along in their faith walk will find some helpful and friendly reminders about who God is and how we can respond to Him in every area of our lives.

Zschech’s easy-to-read writing was full of Scripture and insightful quotes from everyone from Joel Osteen and Timothy Keller to CS Lewis and GK Chesterton. I often find myself skipping over huge block quotes when I’m reading, but these drew me in further and added depth and meaning to the message.

I received a copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest review. The opinions are my own and were not influenced by the publisher or author.
