The only thing that keeps it from being five stars is the unreasonably high price. I bought my copy used and it was still over $25.
This would be a must read if it was priced to match the market. ($15-25 New in paperback?) As it is, it's too expense to wholeheartedly recommend. For example, I was going to use this as a text for a class I'm teaching on worship song writing. As it is, the new price pricing levels make this impractical.
I wish there were a sequel to this book about how to select worship songs and put them together into sets. Of course I know the basics: similar keys, similar themes, etc. However, I would have liked to hear from these great worship leaders about their methods on how they put together a worship list on a given Sunday. I really do think that it could fill another whole book!
As a musician and worshiper who is not a worship pastor (but very interested in the subject), I feel the book does a good job of laying a foundation for the basics of what makes a good worship song and how a great worship song may differ from other forms of popular music and does (for the most part) a good job validating the ideas presented. It also has a chapter on music theory that focuses in on theory in relation to contemporary worship songs, I found this part of the book especially interesting. The stories behind some of todays most famous worship songs were also very good.
The book assumes you know how to play an instrument (piano or guitar) and you already know the basics of music theory; it assumes you're already a songwriter looking to expand your knowledge of worship songwriting.
If you want to hear these techniques applied, check out Paul Baloche's latest album A Greater Song. Paul is an worship pastor trainer, worship pastor and recording artist.
