The author; a pastor and noted songwriter; skillfully instructs pastors; musicians; and church leaders so that they can root their congregational worship in unchanging scriptural principles; not divisive cultural trends. Bob Kauflin covers a variety of topics such as the devastating effects of worshiping the wrong things; how to base our worship on God's self-revelation rather than our assumptions; the fuel of worship; the community of worship; and the ways that eternity's worship should affect our earthly worship. Appropriate for Christians from varied backgrounds and for various denominations; this book will bring a vital perspective to what readers think they understand about praising God.
