That’s right, Bob Kauflin’s book Worship Matters: Leading Others To Encounter the Greatness of God has been released. Bob has been leading corporate worship for over 30 years. Bob, a pastor and worship leader at Covenant Life Church and Director of Worship Development for Sovereign Grace Ministries, is a significant gift from God in the area of corporate worship. I personally have been affected many things Bob has taught and many songs he has written. My understanding of worship has been drastically altered, as Bob has faithfully led Sovereign Grace Ministries to continue to clarify the content and practice of worship.

And, here is his book, with all his thoughts on worship. This book should be required reading for everyone who serves on a worship team. However, it is also for non-musicians. In fact, I think all people would be edified as Bob teaches us how our hearts should be positioned worshipfully throughout the week, what the worship leader is called to do, and what is more important than all these “worship wars.”

The book is broken into four sections: (1) The leader talks about the worship that is more important than Sunday mornings, that of personal devotion to God and worshipful obedience of God throughout the week. (2) The task analyzes what the worship leader is called to do, as Bob explains his definition of a worship leader. (3) Healthy tensions speaks of true and healthy tensions in corporate worship, such as worshipping a transcendent and immanent God, worshipping with head and heart, being rooted and yet relevant, etc. And (4) Right relationships walks through relationships among the worship team with the church, themselves, and the pastors.

This book is a gift. So, take the time to read it with me! You will benefit whether you serve on a worship team, are a professional musician, or serve in other areas in the church.

Oh yeah, you can buy it here for $11.21.
