Item Description...
Overview
Benedictions, invocations to depart with God's blessings, are a feature of the church - every liturgical structure ends with them. They were a feature of the synagogue in Christ's time - indeed Christ himself uses them when he dismisses his disciples on a new task. The word benediction derives from two Latin words that mean "to speak well of". Benedictions are pronounced by ministers at the close of worship services as an expression of hope and encouragement to God's people to face whatever their future might hold. This makes them a Biblical norm for the end of worship - something we should consider doing each time we leave God's presence and go out into the world. If you are involved with leading worship in the church or in the home your next question will be 'Where do I go to find them?' Fortunately Robert Vasholz has done the legwork for you. He has collected in this one book the benedictions found in scripture along with some additional scripture enriched blessings for use during worship. Use them to help Christians have a greater effect on the world.

A Great Resource  May 12, 2007
If you are in a church that is in the practice of the pastor pronouncing a benediction (which is not a closing prayer called a benediction, but a real blessing) to the people as the church goes from corporate worship to the "mission field," I highly reccomend this small book for a pastor, or anyone for that matter, to read the rich promises in Scripture that God gives his people.
My former Hebrew Professor, Dr. Robert Vasholz, put together 109 different benedictions that draw from Scriptural promises to be used in corporate worship. I think the real upshot to some of the benedictions are the way he combined portions of Old Testament scriptures with New Testament scriptures and they work well together in such a way that you are reminded of God's love for his people throughout the ages.

Here is an example of one particular benediction:
May the Lord of Hosts be with you
So that you will become greater and greater still,
Until you recieve that crown of life
Which the Lord has prepared for those that love Him.
2 Sam 5:10 & James 1:12 (pp 48)

He also combines OT with OT, single verses that are not often used as benedictions and aditionally Scripture combined with great lyrics of hymns and poems from Christian history. The language is such that it provides a depth and richness to understanding and recieving God's blessing at the close of corporate worship. And it certainly gives pastors a greater breadth of material than the standard Aaronic Benediction and the three or four which are typically used from the New Testament. Instead of a congregation hearing the same benedictions month by month until they run the risk of being "vain" in their repetition; the pastor has a resource for over two years without a repeat!
