Tom Kraeuter, author of at least five books on leading worship, offers advice borne of Bible study and personal experience arranged in an easy-to-use Question and Answer format. He asks
good questions and sometimes gives good, practical answers. (Q: “How can I worship more instead of concentrating on the musical mechanics?” A: Practice more.) But sometimes his answers are not so good and other times he just dodges altogether the tough questions he’s posed. For example, his bottom-line response to the crucial question of whether or not worship should follow a biblical pattern is: “There’s no one-size-fits-all answer. Pray for the Lord’s guidance and He will lead you.” Readers can find some helpful guidance on these pages—but not on every page.
