How Would Jesus Lead Worship?
Full Product Description
Is this what springs to mind when you think of Jesus leading worship? What does it mean to worship in a Christ-like way?
The word 'worship' can mean different things to different people. Some see it as just singing; others see it as prayer. As this book reveals, worship is less about a preferred music style and more an attitude of the heart towards God.
It explores what we can learn about worship from the life of Jesus, and offers down-to-earth teaching and practical examples to help creative worship flourish in the local church. The authors remind us that Jesus-inspired worship can lead to Christ-like attitudes towards God, one another, and the wider world.
'Thoughtful and thought-provoking, active and action-provoking, pastoral and compassionate'
- Geraldine Latty, Worship Leader, Vocal Church
'Combines accessibility with a refreshingly firm grounding in a theological understanding of worship too often absent in books of this kind.'
- Chris Jack, Lecturer in Theology and Worship, London School of Theology

How Would Jesus Lead WorshipMartin Brasier, via The Good Book Stall
Having joined in worship led by the authors and found the experience a very positive one; I wanted to like this book, and I did, although it was not what I expected.
The key theme of the book is that worship is about our whole lives, and we should be exploring creative new ways of expressing that worship, some way beyond what passes for a "time of worship" in many churches. So, if the title conjures up images of Jesus leading a congregation through a set of worship songs, your view of worship is too narrow!
The book is in two parts. The first part starts with our understanding (and misunderstandings) of worship, and explores the idea of Jesus as our worship leader using the book of Hebrews. The much longer second part draws practical lessons about worship from Luke's Gospel. The book is written in an informal style, and includes practical activities/examples to try out, in the form of a book for private or group study.
A creative and multi-sensory approach to worship is encouraged throughout, although the book also contains a fair bit of advice and comment about song selection and bands.
I expected this book simply to confirm my own views. As it turned out, I learned a few things, had my thinking affirmed in some areas, and challenged in others. My guess is that most people with leadership roles involving worship will find the same. Well worth a read.
