In Worship Evangelism, Sally Morgenthaler calls the church to consider the remarkable, untapped potential of worship as an opportunity of those who aren't yet followers of Jesus Christ as well as those who are to encounter the presence of God. Combining the best of traditional and contemporary worship music and practices, Morgenthaler shows how to achieve worship that's both culturally relevant and authentic. She helps pastors, worship leaders, and musicians - Understand worship and its attraction for non-Christians - Tear down walls that keep unbelievers from meeting God in church worship - Make worship evangelism happen--in any culture Morgenthaler draws on sound research and her extensive experience as a worship leader to offer an energetic, hands-on approach. Now with a study guide that encourages group discussion and personal action, this timely book offers fresh vision for worship evangelism and provides the strategies to implement it.

Very useful for ministry.October 21, 2011choirdirectorDallas, TexasAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5Excellent book. It is very useful for the ministry of praise and worship. The author makes it plain, it is an easy read, and scripture-based. There are practical tools, and great information that can be used right now. It wakes up the consciousness of the church, and especially those involved in worship ministry to include evangelism in our delivery of worship to our congregations.
Marv5 Stars Out Of 5October 13, 2002MarvThis is an excellent book; it helps the reader think outside of his typical world. Great stat's on where the church has been and where it's going. Even if you don't agree with the conclusions, it should help you think through what and how the church should do things.
David R. Bess3 Stars Out Of 5July 21, 2002David R. BessThis book is easily summarized in the following statement: True Christian worship is a powerful tool of evangelism, contrary to the common perception that seekers services are the only way to mass-evangelize in the 21st century.Morgenthaler again and again emphasizes this point throughout her work. I agree wholeheartedly with her conclusion, but wish she had chosen a better means to support it. This volume draws heavily upon the sociological definitions of "boomer" and "buster." It interviews various worship leaders to get their perspectives on what is currently effective for them in ministry. It rambles in an almost endless explanation of what is required to reach "Seeker Bob" and "Shopper Bruce."The bottom line here is that Morgenthaler's destination is commendable. Genuine worship CAN reach the unchurched for Christ. Her method of getting the reader to that destination however, is mediocre at best and could stand much improvement.I would recommend that if anyone is interesting in learning more about this book, borrow, don't buy. Skim, don't read. The time and energy spent in covering every page would be better invested elsewhere.
Tim Seiger5 Stars Out Of 5July 2, 2001Tim SeigerAn excellent work that offers a compelling argument for understanding the power of Christian worship to impact the non-believer. Morganthaller is instructive without being preachy and you do not feel stuck in the middle of the so called "worship wars." Must reading for everyone interested in moving their worship both corporate and personal to a deeper level.
