Once a songwriter and music arranger for the Christian music group GLAD, Bob Kauflin now is the director of worship development for Sovereign Grace Ministries. Worship Matters, while primarily geared toward musicians, is valuable for anyone who wishes to worship God more fully. The book unpacks why we worship, addresses various aspects of leadership, and gives a wonderfully balanced approach to selecting music in a worship service setting. My favorite part of the book is Part Three: “Healthy Tensions.” It has opened my eyes and heart on comprehending and appreciating topics within worship that can be polarizing. With incredible nuance, Kauflin interweaves guiding principles in worship that all worship service planners should read.
