muffinHonea Path, SCAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5A Handbook for Worship LeadersDecember 29, 2016muffinHonea Path, SCAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3Essential Worship by Greg Scheer is a worship handbook for leaders. This book discusses the basics of worship theology and practice. This handbook is divided into five sections: Principles, Past, Practice: Music in Worship, Practice: The Art in Worship, and People. There are also charts, diagram, lists, and discussion questions at the end of each chapter. Therefore, this book could also be used in a small group setting.
Although this book was a little above my head and a little too wordy for me, I think this would be a wonderful handbook for a music leader or a pastor. It seems like this book would help to lead a congregation into worship.
I received this book from Baker Books for my honest opinion.
Clay4 Stars Out Of 5Worship Leaders HandbookNovember 9, 2016ClayQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 0Part history, part guide, part resource, author Scheer condenses worship and its elements into twenty-three chapters. He divides the book into five sections: Principles; Past; Practice: Music in Worship; Practice: The Arts in Worship; and People.
He begins by defining worship and then explaining how it has been practiced through the years. His shortest section is on music in worship, a mere eight pages. The remainder of the section on Practice: Music in Worship is taken up with a general introduction to the subject and a long chapter on congregational song repertoire.
The book is colored by Scheers experience. Growing up in a Pentecostal setting, but now working in a Reformed environment, his leaning throughout the book is toward his current church situation and its practices.
The book would be invaluable to an individual heading for a position as Worship Pastor or Minister of Worship. Throughout, it provides helps to guide a person toward worship. One of the invaluable resources in each chapter is the list of additional reading that is included.
Though I cant hold a tune, I still enjoyed reading the book for a better understanding of what goes into the practice of worship on a Sunday morning.
