I finally read David Crowder’s ‘Praise Habit,’ a book on worship. His basic premise of the book was in expressing the ability and need to be worshipping in all that we do, not just Sunday mornings or during the songs we sing. Much more of a holistic worship mentality. The concept itself isn’t anything new, but it doesn’t make it any less relevant or important.
What makes this a great book compared to others on the topic is Crowder’s quirky writing style. If you’ve ever seen him in concert or speaking, you know what I mean when I say that his voice comes through loud and clear on this book – the man knows how to capture himself on paper! I loved his stories, metaphors, illustrations and memories all weaving in and out of what it means to put on a habit of praise throughout life. A large section of the book is him expounding on some of his favorite Psalms and the worship that is in them – I looked at scripture passages in ways that I have never done before!
All in all, it’s a great book. Easy and fun to read with a lot of thought provoking challenges and ideas.
