Reviews - What do customers think about The New Worship: Straight Talk on Music and the Church?

A real treasure of information  Jul 29, 2006
This book is a real treasure trove of information. Great insight on many different styles of worship without any favoritism towards any one style. I recommend this book to anyone whose plans, or assists in planning worship.
The Expanded Version is 40% better  Aug 15, 2001
This is the author, Barry Liesch, writing. Just a note on the changes in the expanded edition. Chapters 1, 2, 6, 10, and 11 are new or virtually new. All the other chapters (16 in all) are enhanced too. This version is much stronger, both theologically and practically.

It has a greater appeal to college-age worship leaders. It's more incisive. It also links up with the web site I've partnered, offering many supplemental materials with ongoing updates--see Baker Books has done an exemplary job with the layout--lots of diagrams, tables, illustrative drawings for the eye. In short, I'm pleased with the result and hope you will be too.

Great Balance  May 14, 2000
Barry has now written 2 good books on worship. The heart he has for worship, and his attempt not to alienate anyone truly seeking God are outstanding. It is a shame he has to bend over backwards to keep some from getting upset, but he is willing to do it for God's sake and he is good at it.

There are many practical helps here as well as a good basis for trying new forms and methods. I find his style honest and inviting. I can also personally testify to many of the recommendations given on contemporary, flowing worship styles.

Get this book and have fun exploring God's greatness is worship!

Easy to Read and Practical  May 10, 2000
This book is timely. Carifying of my own opinions and experience while offering new insights and practical application. Obviously established on experience and observation as well as Biblical principles (I also read the author's other book, People in the Presence of God, for more theological background). An insightful resource, easy to read and understand.
A comprehensive guide to contemporary worship practice.  Aug 6, 1999
This is the author, Barry Liesch, writing. My book is writtenfor pastors, musicians, and worship leaders, and everyone interestedin worship renewal. This book is very practical--with theory woven in. It lowers the heat on issues like hymns vs choruses, free-flowing praise, tensions over musical style, worship as performance, new orders of service, implementing change, and staff relations. Fits music into worship theology and ministry. It's used as a text in about 30 colleges and seminaries, and by worship teams worldwide. The high tech-layout contains many helpful charts, and concept icons. Popular in style (conversational) with a scholarly foundation. Took four years to write. You'll get your money's worth. Finally, also check out my other worship book People in the Presence of God, available at this site. It was nominated for a gold medallion award (best book of the year). It's really gets into what the Bible has to say about worship. Barry Liesch--author of The New Worship
