Let Us Draw Near with Dr. Ron Man

A live discussion with the author of Let Us Draw Near: Biblical Foundations of Worship

Let Us Draw Near: Biblical Foundations of Worship is a comprehensive compendium of what the Bible teaches on worship. More than that, Ron has taught this material in 40 countries over a period of 25 years, thereby testing and retesting the most effective ways to organize and present these timeless and essential truths about worship—its content, practice, and contextualization in various cultures.

From the book cover: Features distinguishing this book from other similar studies include: 1) a tracing of the foundational Revelation and Response pattern through the Scriptures; 2) a more thorough treatment of New Testament texts than is often found; 3) a comprehensive treatment of the crucial role of Jesus Christ as the true Leader of our worship; 4) a consideration of worship as it relates to world missions; and 5) a concluding summary of twelve “Biblical Principles of Worship,” synthesizing the results of the study.

The Webinar

In this webinar, Ron will highlight several distinctive topics in his book including the foundational principle of Revelation and Response, the centrality of worship in biblical and human history, the liberating truth of Jesus as the true Leader of worship, and intersection of worship and culture in our churches and in world missions. Time will be reserved for questions and answers.
