Adoration: The Worship Album is the tenth studio album by Christian pop rock band Newsboys, released in 2003. Unlike the band's previous albums, Adoration (as the subtitle implies) is a solely worship-oriented album, deviating from the Newsboys' standard pop rock sound. This was the last Newsboys album with longtime guitarist Jody Davis, until his reunion with the group in 2009, for In the Hands of God.
