If you want to start an "interesting" discussion in most churches, bring up the subject of musical styles! Lucarini questions the use of contemporary worship music; shows why he believes congregations have been deceived into using worldly means to "reach the lost"; and advocates a return to melody and harmony is more important than the beat.
For many churches today, music has become one of the most important factors in attempting to reach unbelievers with the gospel. Writing from his own personal experience as a former worship leader, Dan Lucarini questions the use of contemporary music in the worship of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Tell us a little about yourself. Former rock musician. I led worship for 'seeker- sensitive' churches in the 1980s and 1990s. I left the contemporary praise and worship (CWM) movement in 1999 because of practices and philosophies that seem to go against biblical principles.
What was your motivation behind this project? I am zealous for, and jealous of, the worship of our Holy God. I want everyone to learn more about biblical worship, because it is required of every believer (Romans 12:1-2). I wrote the book because I want to expose some unbiblical worship practices and to warn churches where their new worship styles may take them eventually.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? To those who think we should be very careful with the music styles we use for worship and praise, may they gain some insight into some of the popular CWM defenses. May they be encouraged to know they're not alone. May they gain the courage to lovingly confront those who would force CWM upon them. To those who believe any music style is acceptable for worship and praise, may they consider an alternative viewpoint from someone who was once one of them. May they be challenged to reform their worship music practices.
