Public Worship Considered and Enforced
By Joseph Kinghorn | Edited and Introduced by Baiyu Andrew Song | Foreword by Matthew Boswell
Why do we gather together on Sundays to worship God? Two hundred years ago, Christians asked a similar question. In his work entitled Public Worship Considered and Enforced, Joseph Kinghorn unpacks the meaning and significance of public worship. Through a biblical analysis of what it means to be a Christian in Christ’s Church, Kinghorn highlights not just the blessing of meeting with the people of God but the necessity of public worship in the walk of faith. In an age of increasing isolation and a lone-wolf approach to the Christian life, Kinghorn’s applications for readers to consider and practice in their own Christian walk are just as relevant to the twenty-first century reader as they were to saints two hundred years prior. Public Worship Considered and Enforced exhorts us again to the profound means of grace given to Christians to experience and participate in the worship we were born to do.
