The subject of worship is at the same time both intensely personal and exceedingly public. These days, hardly anything is as sensitive as a discussion on how one thinks we should worship God. In this new book, a sequel to Dan Lucarini's first title 'Why I left the contemporary Christian music movement' - the author takes a close look at what God Himself asked us to do for Him when we worship.
If you are interested to learn more about worshipping God beyond the music; if you're a refugee from the worship wars; or if you're simply curious why someone would do such an about-face from the 'accepted norm of modern worship'; please join the author on a journey into worship. And discover why 'it's not about the music'!
The title of this book has already got your attention. You will not get much further before you will be gripped by its message. Logical, careful, pastoral --and above all biblical - it should be read by every pastor, worship leader and youth leader; in fact by every Christian concerned that our worship should first and foremost be aimed at pleasing God. Not a stone is left unturned. Make sure you don't leave a page unturned!
Dan Lucarini's It's not about the music is an impassioned plea for sanity in the continued debate about worship styles, one which makes a strong case for reform. Amidst polarizing opinions over worship practice, this book deserves to be taken seriously and thoughtfully. Even if his conclusions remain debatable, his case deserves attention. The public worship of God is too serious a matter to be left to the fashions of a particular era. I commend it in the prayerful hope that we might find our way to a more biblical position, one governed by principle rather than prejudice and sentiment.

A less than happy member of our church challenged the leadership: 'Music in worship is as important as preaching the Bible.' She lost her footing however, when someone asked her to support her views from the Scriptures. Without question music plays a role in our worship of God, but what is it? What is it purpose? How it is to be expressed? Too often such questions are answered by the movements of the moment rather than the God of the ages. Dan Lucarini wants to take us back to the timeless teachings of the Word of God and free us from the fads and trends of the times.
