The Power of Praise and Worship by Terry Law – Book Review

The Sacrifice of Praise and the Blessing of Worship

"The Power of Praise and Worship" is a story of tragedy, healing, and of the resultant blessings of worship through the sacrifice of praise. Terry Law shares the lessons he learned as he moved into a new dimension of ministry by combining praise and worship as a lifestyle. This is an updated and revised edition of Terry's earlier book. The earlier edition was written primarily as a teaching tool. In this expanded edition Terry has asked his long time friend Jim Gilbert to cooperate with him in providing the biographical background of two practicedies that impacted his life and ministry in dramatically different ways.

Terry tells of moving from the dark night of despair after Jan's death into the crucible of praise which followed. He helps the reader understand the five stages of spiritual warfare. He uses scripture, illustrations from his own ministry and experiences, and those of other anointed ministers and ministries to reinvigorate his message. Terry goes on to emphasize the importance of the Word of God, the Name of Jesus, and the Blood of Jesus as the three war heads needed to combat satan's attacks.

In Part II Terry, again, calls on Jim Gilbert to record another devastating occurrence. Jim relates the stigma and trauma experienced by Terry when his second wife Shirley sued for divorce. A four year court room scene followed that left Terry nearly insolvent with a illegally ruined world ministry.

The experiences that followed include lessons learned from the sacrifice of praise, a lifestyle of praise, as well as those other elements of praise important to establishing a pattern of praise.
