Excerpt: "The function of praise has taken so many forms that its place in theology today is unclear. In some circles within the Christian framework it seems to this writer to have been almost unwanted. On the other hand, some of the more exaggerated forms of praise have been associated with emotionalism. The Christian believer who seeks a proper balance in this regard, whether in his private worship or in the worship services of his local church, needs to understand the scope of Christian praise as it is taught in the Scriptures and in common experience."
