I am reading a book for bible study on Revelation called 'Apocalypse Now and Then' by Paul Barnett - it's not to thick and daunting so if you want a good but not too 'full on' commentary on Revelation I thoroughly recommend this one. Anyhoo, I was reading it this morning on the bus and found a really cool definition of 'Worship'. Here it is:

"Worship is not to be thought of, primarily, in either aesthetic or emotional terms, though aesthetics and the emotions may be involved. Worship is the expression of agreement by the people of God about the truth of God. Worship is based on the evangelical declaration about who God is, and what God does."
