Preview — Worship Matters by Bob Kauflin. It has really shaped my mind in understanding the concept and life of Worship. Thederahn rated it really liked it. It matters to God because he is the one ultimately worthy of all worship.

Overall Kauflin does a good job of handling these tensions. Jul 08, Laura Stanlake rated it it was amazing Shelves: Bob Kauflin covers a variety of topics such as the devastating effects of worshiping the wrong things, how to base our worship on God’s self-revelation rather than our assumptions, the fuel of worship, the community of worship, and the ways that eternity’s worship should affect our earthly worship. But let’s not allow them to dictate our direction, methods, and values either.

Music ministry should not be emotionally manipulative. Even if you don’t agree with every detail of what he says, all of these things are areas that you can and should be prayerfully working through as you minister to your local church. God is where we want to go.

He is holy, holy, holy. The chapters about “healthy tensions” were very helpful. This, I think, is a good way of ensuring that the heart of those who serve is in the right place. I do not completely agree with a few of his conclusions, but for the most part I think every Christian–especially church leaders–should read this book. It all boils down to what is in the heart of a man.

Dec 14, Jeremy Pynch rated it really liked it. The next two sections Healthy Tensions and Right Relationships are much more applicational. As a Christian, it helped me to see that worship is not just during the music service. The book serves as a healthy reminder to those who would lead worship-musical or non musical, as to what is important and what should be remembered, and what can safely be discarded. In order to do this, the worship leader is urged to be deeply involved with the kaufli of the church.


Ultimately we separate ourselves from the God who drew us to worship him in the first place. This is a great book on worship! Kauflin unpacks what a worship leader does, discusses healthy tensions in our theology and practice of worship, speaks specifically to the relational dynamics in which wofship worship leader is involved with the church, the team, the pastorand more.

A faithful worship leader magnifies the greatness of God in Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit by skillfully combining God’s Word with music, thereby motivating the gathered church to proclaim the gospel, to cherish God’s presence, and to live for God’s glory. Jun 05, Philip rated it it was amazing. Kauflin defines the task of the worship leader as follows: He is worsuip, holy, holy.

I would recommend this book to anyone who takes part in leading kauflib or This magters an excellent book that focuses around leading the singing portion of a church service.

Thanks Bob Kauflin for serving the church with this book. Neither option brings God glory. We forget that worship of the triune God includes the Holy Spirit.

Kauflin spends the opening section of the book dealing with the attitude and character of the worship leader. This book is an excellent read and one that has greatly enriched me in several ways. There were other parts that didn’t pertain to my smaller church situation very well, so I didn’t enjoy them much either. And I’m committed to making sure every present and future member of our church’s worship team gets a copy. I liked the emphasis that Mathers places on the work of the Holy Spirit as we worship God corporately in music and singing.

Worship Matters Quotes

The book’s primary focus, however is on worship leaders. Worship Matters is more than just another book about worship, and it is more than a little commentary and list of suggestions on how to “do music” better.

I’m definitely coming back to it.

For a good portion of the book, he takes each line of the above definition he came up with and writes a particular chapter. In the midst of a culture that glorifies our pitiful accomplishments in countless ways, we gather each week to proclaim God’s wondrous deeds and to glory in his supreme value.

Our unity is in the gospel and not in musical styles, but insofar as musical styles connect to our sanctification, they impinge on the gospel. We can become burdened by the responsibility to lead others and can think that we might not be able to deliver the goods.

Feb 08, Buddy Draper rated it it was amazing Shelves: Skillfully combining God’s word with music, thereby motivating the gathered church to proclaim the gospel, cherish God’s presence, and live for God’s glory. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. That foundation will need to be built on though by other books as well as the pastors and leaders in each particular church.

This book has impacted how I view worship as a whole, how I view my job, how I view my pastor, and how I view my church.
