Nothing is more essential than knowing how to worship the God who created us. This book focuses readers on the essentials of God-honoring worship, combining biblical foundations with practical application in a way that works in the real world. The author, a pastor and noted songwriter, skillfully instructs pastors, musicians, and church leaders so that they can root their congregational worship in unchanging scriptural principles, not divisive cultural trends. 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. Appropriate for Christians from varied backgrounds and for various denominations, this book will bring a vital perspective to what readers think they understand about praising God.

Fünf Grammys, elf Mal als Solokünstler in den deutschen Album-Top Ten und Autor von über eintausend Songs – Paul McCartneys Karriere ist in jeder Hinsicht von Superlativen geprägt. Nun schreibt der renommierte Rock-Biograf Philip Norman seine Geschichte auf – erstmals mit McCartneys Einverständnis und unter Einbezug von Freunden und Familie. So entsteht ein kenntnisreiches Portrait von Pauls oftmals nicht ganz einfachen Beziehung zu John Lennon, der tragischen Zeit nach der Auflösung der Beatles und des Kampfs zurück in den Pop-Olymp mit den Wings, der fast dazu geführt hätte, dass McCartney in Afrika ermordet worden wäre. Norman legt hier mit bisher unveröffentlichten Details und kritischen Erkenntnissen die umfassende Biografie einer der größten musikalischen Legenden unserer Zeit vor.

Modern worship leaders are restless. They have inherited a model of leadership that equates leading worship with being a rock star. But leading worship is more than a performance, it's about shaping souls and making disciples. Every worship leader is really a pastor. The Worship Pastor is a practical and biblical introduction to this essential pastoral role. Filled with engaging, illustrative stories it is organized to address questions of theory and practice, striving to balance conversational accessibility with informed instruction. Part One presents a series of evocative "vignettes"--intriguing and descriptive titles and metaphors of who a Worship Pastor is and what he or she does. It shows the Worship Pastor as Church-Lover, Disciple Maker, Corporate Mystic, and Doxological Philosopher. Part Two covers specific roles related to ministry within the worship service itself--the Worship Pastor as Theological Dietician, Caregiver, Mortician, Emotional Shepherd, War General, Prophetic Guardian, Missional Historian, and Liturgical Architect. Part Three looks at ministry beyond the worship service--the Worship Pastor as Visionary Teacher, Evangelist, Artist Chaplain, and Team Leader. While some worship leaders are eager to embrace their pastoral role, many are lost and confused or lack the resources of time or money to figure out what this role looks like. Pastor Zac Hicks gives us a clear guide to leading worship, one that takes the pastoral call seriously.

In the grip of serious numerical decline, American Evangelical churches are now experiencing a missional movement. God is calling his people to return to a biblical lifestyle that goes full circle in continual worship, discipleship, and missions. Mark Powers connects the dots between these three main elements of authentic Christian living. He presents a theology of missional worship, a detailed discipleship plan, and a strategy for local music missions. Going Full Circle uses everyday language to present a simple thought process to move worshipers and worship leaders to become worshiping disciples on mission. Are you a casualty of worship wars? Are you worried about the decline of your church? Are you thrilled with fast growth churches but sense there must be something more than spectator worship? Are you confused by the word "missional" that seems to be popping up everywhere? This book is for you and your friends. Read it, share it, and join the movement!

Mit einer Gesamtauflage von über 500.000 Exp. hat sich dieses Buch als ein zeitloser Klassiker zum Thema Leiterschaft erwiesen. Die Gemeinde braucht Leiter, die sich selbst von Gott leiten lassen und sich ihm ganz und gar hingeben. Geistliche Leiterschaft möchte Sie dazu ermutigen, Ihre Talente und Kräfte Gott zur Verfügung zu stellen und in seinem Dienst brauchbarer zu werden. Zitat von John MacArthur: >Dieses Buch sollte der ständige Begleiter jedes Unterhirten im Dienste des Heilands sein. Am hilfreichsten ist die Tatsache, dass nicht Methoden, sondern der Charakter, die Hingabe und das Leben vor Gott betont werden. Ich habe das Buch immer wieder gelesen um die Grundlagen meiner Aufgabe besser zu begreifen und habe es dem gesamten Leiter-Team unserer Gemeinde zum Lesen gegeben.
