According to divine command and simple justice alike, we should give God worship. But how do we know if we’re doing it right?

After all, the world is hardly in full agreement on this question. Is religion really just about bowing and kneeling in a big church? Maybe we should worship God by communing with nature instead, or by loving our neighbor. Or maybe, since God dwells within us, true worship simply means becoming the best version of ourselves.

In Real Religion, How to Avoid False Faith and Worship God in Spirit and Truth, popular preacher and professor Fr. Jeffrey Kirby cuts through misguided modern notions—idols, really—about God and religion and takes you back to the foundation for true worship: God’s revelation about himself.

There’s no secret formula; God has laid out all the answers for us. From his very first contact with his chosen people in the Old Testament, to his loving guidance throughout salvation history, to the culmination of his revelation in Jesus Christ, God shows us what religion is supposed to be like—and how to make the practice of it a lifelong virtue in our lives.

In doing so, we not only render justice to God but perfect our souls, putting us on a path to achieving real religion’s goal: peace in this world and eternal happiness with him in the next.
