I love that many authors/worship leaders have contributed to this book. Because of this, some chapters are a bit more technical than others, yet each is full of biblical truth and guidance that I believe every worship leader will do well to heed (although I'm not fully convinced of the argumentation in chapter 2. I need to search the Scriptures more in that regard).
As one who majored in the Biblical Languages in college, I noticed two minor errors regarding references to the Hebrew language:
1) In chapter 3, page 49 (kindle location 638 of 2502), Michael Bleecker claims that the word Hallelujah "is a word that translates to a joyous praise of boasting in the Lord." I'm very curious where he's getting this idea from. Truly, modern day people often use it this way, but is this how it was used in Scripture? If what Bleecker says is true, I believe he should have also explained the way Hallelujah is used all throughout Scripture. Hallelujah is literally a *command* to praise Yahweh; it is a command that one person gives to one's own self or to another. This is vastly different than a "joyous praise of boasting." Hallelu is the command praise(!), and Jah (or better yet Yah) is an abbreviated form of Yahweh.Read more ›
To God be all glory... As you lead us in worship of Him.
I am grateful for this book because it has reminded me that Christ's life, death, burial and resurrection affects every part of ministry. It ought to push pastors to ask "What is this teaching the people about the Gospel?" As well as "What does my conduct and the way that I approach this ministry tell people about the Gospel?"
Challenging, Convicting and a thoroughly enjoyable read. I recommend this to people of all different backgrounds. Everyone who's focus is already Gospel-centered can be encouraged and reminded of the focus of their ministry. Those who aren't there yet will be challenged deeply to think about what is most important.
The books gives a full-breath charge to leaders of the church on a theological, worshipful and practical level. A well versed theology of worship and centrality of the scriptures is shown challenging the reader. Personal disciplines of the worship leader and care for one's own heart and worship of Jesus. Mission and justice show the larger implications of what worship is, and practical chapters like liturgy and disciple-making give a full picture of what a man of God who leads worship should look like. The Gospel is boldly proclaimed, and Jesus is pointed to.
The book is easily accessible, easy to be read in a group, and can be used to train men (I'm reading through this book with several of our band leaders, and key leaders and musicians at The Paradox). What blows me away is how these men actually live this out. This isn't a cute book of ideas to feel good about and increase our knowledge. This is a book written by men who loves these doctrines, and have lived them that the Gospel and mission of Jesus might move forward throughout the entire world.
Ultimately the book should be challenging, helpful, and point you to live on the mission of God, in the family of God, worshipping Jesus, the Son of God.
