There are no discussion topics on this book yet. This is no surprise as his writing is rich with scriptural references and one of his fundamental perspectives is that the worship leader, just as all followers of Christ, should first seek to be a theologian. While more needs to be said on this subject, this is mattrs wonderful place to start.

It appeared to be a stuffy, boring treatise on using music in a church to worship God.

Thanks Bob Kauflin for serving the church with this book. One of the ways he says he ensures he follows this bib in the songs he chose for his own church is that when he finds out about new songs he always goes though the words before he listens to the song.

Without mattrs these questions, one may assume that applauding a musical performance is more in keeping with Scripture than not applauding special music–but the assumption would be ill-considered.

We learn that music isn’t an end in itself but rather a means of expressing the worship already present in our hearts through the new life we’ve received in Jesus Christ. A faithful worship leader magnifies the greatness of God in Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit by skillfully combining God’s Word with music, thereby motivating the gathered church to proclaim the gospel, to cherish God’s presence, and to live for God’s glory.


It has a lot of principles you can extract to apply to your Christian life. We’re good theologians if what we say and think about God lines up with what Scripture says and affirms.

The extreme end of being skillful can lead to pride though, which is a theme Kauflin often challenges the reader on. The following eleven chapters expand on the particulars of this definition.

This is a great book for pastors, worship leaders, and worship teams. Kauflin is careful enough with the content of the music in the worship services he leads that it is possible that the content of his worship music may be more substantial than the gospel songs that many musical conservatives employ.

Worship Matters is more than just another book about worship, and it is more than a little commentary and list of suggestions on how to “do music” better. It’s doing it until you can’t get it wrong.
