Body of Practical Divinity

by John Gill


In his book A Body of Practical Divinity, John Gill presents his beliefs on the worship of God. The first section of his text features advice to Christians participating in internal worship. According to Gill, the worshippers should experience thankfulness, humility, and self-denial as they commune with God. Next, Gill discusses the nature of public worship in the church and the special worship duties that belong to pastors, deacons, and church-members. Finally, Gill reviews the duties shared by individuals who participate in private worship. He warns us that the Triune God must remain the sole object of human worship. Gill's practical wisdom is useful for all Christians who aim to ensure that the act of worship is always glorifying to God.
