How should I worship God?
This question has been debated vigorously since the beginning of Christ's church, and is the source of bitter disputes past and present. We live in a Christian age where music performance is the focal point and given the lion's share of time, energy and praise at most worship services and religious gatherings.
But what if we're missing the point entirely? What if music is not the main thing about worship?
In this book, Dan Lucarini, a former contemporary worship leader and best-selling author, examines the subject of worship from a biblical perspective. He shows us how far much of what we call worship today falls short of that ideal, and urges us to reconsider our priorities and, most importantly, to put God back at the center of all we do.

'It's not about the music is an impassioned plea for sanity in the continued
debate about worship styles, one which makes a strong case for reform. Amidst
polarizing opinions over worship practice, this book deserves to be taken
seriously and thoughtfully. Even if his conclusions remain debatable, his case
deserves attention. The public worship of God is too serious a matter to be
left to the fashions of a particular era. I commend it in the prayerful hope that
we might find our way to a more biblical position, one governed by principle
rather than prejudice and sentiment.'

'The title of this book has already got your attention. You will not get much
further before you will be gripped by its message. Logical, careful, pastoral --
and above all biblical -- it should be read by every pastor, worship leader and
youth leader; in fact by every Christian concerned that our worship should first
and foremost be aimed at pleasing God. Not a stone is left unturned. Make sure
you don't leave a page unturned!'
Dr John Blanchard
Author, lecturer and conference speaker
'A less than happy member of our church challenged the leadership: "Music in
worship is as important as preaching the Bible." She lost her footing, however,
when someone asked her to support her views from the Scriptures. Without
question music plays a role in our worship of God, but what is it? What is its
purpose? How is it to be expressed? Too often such questions are answered by
the movements of the moment rather than the God of the ages. Dan Lucarini
wants to take us back to the timeless teachings of the Word of God and free us
from the fads and trends of the times.'

Senior Pastor of Southern View Chapel; and author of This Little Church Had None
