Worship Matters has a subtitle: “Leading Others to Encounter the Greatness of God.” As the title and subtitle indicate, this book speaks powerfully and clearly to music ministers in churches. However, I am no music minister, and I loved this book. Worship Matters addresses anyone who is a true worshiper of the Living God revealed in Jesus Christ.
Worship Matters is endorsed by Matt Redman, D. A. Carson, Wayne Grudem, Mark Dever, Joshua Harris, Al Mohler, Bruce Ware, and others. So, clearly, the book is highly recommended from Bible-loving, Christ-exalting leaders.
I found my soul stirring again and again with worship as I read Kauflin’s book. His work is truly a definitive contribution to the theology of church worship. His “mission statement” of a worship leader is alone worth the price of the book. His chapters on “healthy tensions” are very insightful. Get a copy of this book, and read what Scripture teaches about worship and what Scripture requires from God’s worshipers. Happy reading.
