The opening paragraph of this collection of essays sets out its grand theme, and is worth quoting from at length:

"One of the greatest needs of the modern church is theologically driven worship leaders. The church is starving for worship leaders who will teach them to sing about the great gospel of Christ in all its richness...
Many believe that...pastors and professors teach the truth and the worship leaders lead the singing. And because of this, our churches are limping along with people who do not understand that the greatest truths of the gospel have always been designed to cause the greatest praise."

It's a stirring and timely plea to a contemporary church where 'worship' often means 'music', and 'music' can just end up as 'entertainment' or 'therapy'.

And the rest of the book attempts to flesh this out with a dozen short essays. So we have "The worship leader and Mission", "The worship leader and the Trinity", "The worship leader and Liturgy", "The worship leader and Creativity", and so on.

And they don't do a bad job. There is much to stir up the typical church musician / worship leader, many memorable and quotable sentences (from the authors as well as from others), and much food for thought and prayer.

How could it be even better? Firstly, for a book that's seeking to keep us biblical, there is very little biblical background on who exactly we're talking about when we say 'worship leader'. It's a title which doesn't feature in the bible, as the book admits. Not that this makes it necessarily inappropriate; but, other than the assumption that 'we all know who we're talking about really' there's little solid discussion to clarify the terms.

Haven't finished this book yet but what I have read so far is good. I am using it with my son as a study of worship as he is training as a worship leader.

HASH(0x90637150) out of 5 stars Varying Perspectives, One Gospel. 23 May 2013
By JHolliday - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is exactly what the subtitle suggests: it is how the Gospel shapes the worship pastor. All of the subject matter in this book has been helpful, particularly the varying opinions and views represented: men from Presbyterian, non-denominational and Baptist backgrounds that have been shepherding their people with a Gospel focus. Yet each one explains one of the ways in which the Gospel may be applied in corporate worship ministry.

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.

HASH(0x90089858) out of 5 stars A great book to read! 6 July 2014
By Josué Manriquez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've had the challenging & humbling honor of leading the music ministry at my local church for the past two years (as of July 6th, 2014), so I'm very grateful for this book! Not only do I believe this book will benefit "worship leaders," but I also believe it will benefit every Christian in many ways, such as by instructing them on the relation between doxology and theology (this truly is an important relationship for Christians to understand).

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. In the Psalms, the Psalmist (the "worship leader") says Hallelujah as a command for others to join him in praising Yahweh (cf. Ps. 106:1; 113:1; 150), or a command to himself to praise Yahweh (cf. Ps. 104:35b; 146:1). The book of Revelation also uses it as a command to praise Yahweh. You can even see this command and response of praise in the Apocryphal books Tobit 13:18 and 3 Maccabees 7:13. Thus, when I say Hallelujah at our church gatherings, I say it as a command either to myself, or to the gathered church. In response to this command, we praise the Lord!

2) On page 53 (kindle location 678 of 2502), the same author identifies the Hebrew word for worship as histahawah, and he breaks the word down as "HISt-a-ha-wah." The beginning of this Hebrew word, however, is "hisht", not "hist."

All in all, this is an excellent book that I highly recommend.

HASH(0x9022c618) out of 5 stars A Must Read For Any Worship Leader 28 May 2013
By The Paradox Church - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Doxology & Theology is a must read for anyone currently serving as a worship leader, or aspiring to lead worship.

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.
