Living in the individualistic world of today leads many to believe Christianity can be a solitary pursuit. But is this view supported by biblical evidence? What is, actually, the reason Christians have been called to gather in regular assemblies? And when they meet, what exactly happens?

The authors of this book want to provide an in-depth biblical, historical, and theological study of the Christian assembly. Starting with Hebrew worship gatherings in the Old Testament, they trace worship through the centuries, with the main focus on the theology of worship. At the bottom of their quest is uncovering what really happens when Christians gather: an encounter with God.
