Nerland, Miranda.  Why Do We Worship? (published in 2017 by DeWard Publishing Company Ltd., P. O. Box 6259, Chillicothe, OH  45601). “Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord our Maker” (Psalm 95:6).  One of the first and most fundamental questions that most children ask about anything is, “Why?”  This book seeks to answer the sometimes difficult question, Why Do We Worship?   Some of the reasons, besides the fact that He wants us to, are that He is wonderful, big, wise, good, strong, and loving.  But all this then raises another important question.  How do we go about worshipping God?

This wonderfully written and beautifully illustrated book lays out God’s plan for worship in the Scriptures so that even very young children can understand it and encourages everyone to practice worship in their lives.  It is actually a good reminder for believers of all ages. Every point has a scripture reference, so the book can grow with children as they get older and want to look things up themselves, but it is simple enough to read even to a one-year-old to help impress the meaning and importance of worship on young hearts.
