As believers, we have a desperate need to cultivate intimacy with our God, a place of blissful union in His love. Now acclaimed worship leader, singer, and teacher Steve Fry shows us how. "The key to knowing God," Fry says, "is worship." From jubilant praise to the very embrace of His heart, the author invites everyone to enter into this mysterious encounter with God's glory. The reader will find practical instruction on meditating in the Scriptures, preparing oneself through praise, and seeking God's face in prayer. If you're dry, distracted, dissatisfied, drained in spirit -- or simply seeking "more" -- this biblical praise and worship primer will rekindle the flame of passionate relationship with Christ.
