I love Jon's conversational writing style, and I even laughed aloud a few times due to his fun anecdotes. There is a lot of meat packed into this guide - Jon doesn't just throw his system at you and tell you how to implement it. Instead he deliberately highlights the need for such a system and thoroughly explains each component.
As I write this review, I have all my binders of chord charts out and strewn across the floor as I eagerly begin to implement the SongCycle.
I look forward to seeing how the Lord will use it and pray that our worship time is enriched as a result.
The thing I liked about this book is how diversified it is. Much of the concepts revolve around leading worship in a large church where there would be several worship teams. Even though I've never been a worship leader in that capacity, I came away with wonderful tips that can help me on the smaller scale of being a worship leader.
If you are just beginning to lead worship or have been doing so for many years (like myself for the past 10 years) you will find plenty of ideas that will help you be an even better leader than you are now.
Don't hesitate to get this book!
I especially liked the part about introducing a new song. What I learned from the book has already been helpful in that respect.
Not only was the book a good source of information, it was easy and fun to read. Nicol uses stories and examples in his writing that make the book enjoyable and help the reader grasp the concepts. I can imagine this would be a helpful guide to anyone who participates in the music ministry of their church.
The SongCycle is truly an excellent resource for worship leaders desperate to get a grasp on their ever expanding music catalogs. Jon also provides wisdom and insight in areas that often trouble worship leaders such as encouraging congregations to engage in worship and the introduction of new music while honoring past classics. When I finished SongCycle I felt as if I had been in an concentrated micro-mentoring session with this experienced worship pastor.
I fully intend to implement the principles behind the SongCycle system into the way I schedule worship songs and introduce new material.
Thank you Jon for writing this book!
