In the Splendor of Holiness is a book that takes us by the hand and leads us back to the basics of biblical worship. A useful resource for personal study, small groups, Sunday school and new member classes, this study encourages the recovery of worship that is unashamedly God-centered and manifestly Scriptural. Rediscover the beauty of Reformed worship for the 21st Century.

Jon Payne deftly guides readers through the various parts of the worship service and explains not simply why these activities constitute Reformed worship. He also carefully delineates why Presbyterians worship the way they do. In so doing, Payne provides a clear, convincing and edifying account of historic Reformed worship. Here Christians will find great assistance for the most significant part of each week.

- Dr. Darryl G. Hart; from the forward Intercollegiate Studies Institute, Wilmington, DE

About the Author:

Jon David Payne was born and raised in Santa Clara, California. Dr. Payne is a graduate of Clemson University, Reformed Theological Seminary and the University of Edinburgh, New College. He has been serving as minister of Grace Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Douglasville, GA since June 2003.

Review:

Jon Payne has given us a gem in his new book, In the Splendor of Holiness . Cutting through the forest of opinion on worship, Dr. Payne gets to the heart of the matter in a brief but succinct account of what constitutes the heart of corporate worship. Nothing is more important than the public worship of God, but our age has yielded to the gods of flippancy and utilitarian- ism. It seems all too obvious to ask, what has God commanded that we do when we gather together for public worship? The answer? Here it is in his book! I cannot recommend it too highly. It deserves to be in every Christian home. --Dr. Derek Thomas, Professor of Systematic Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson

In the Splendor of Holiness is clear, well-reasoned, practical, and, above all things, thoroughly biblical. And it is as needed as it is helpful. I will consider this as essential reading for officer training classes, and it is suitable for distribution to prospective new member classes. Through Jon Payne's work we hear the voice of our Good Shepherd on a subject that has become part of the ruins of evangelicalism. Thankfully, with pastors like Dr. Payne, our Savior's church will be fed and led. This is a tool that every Reformed pastor should want his people to know and love. -- --Dr. David W. Hall, Senior Minister, Midway Presbyterian Church, Powder Springs, GA

... In the Splendor of Holiness by Jon Payne is an excellent instrument to communicate the elements of true, biblical worship as well as a training manual for both the leadership and membership of a local church in fulfilling God's call to exalt in the praise of His glorious grace. --Dr. Harry L. Reeder III, Senior Minister, Briarwood Presbyterian Church, Birmingham, AL
