Suggested Worship Books

I just taught a seminar on worship resources, and passed out the following list to about 40 worship leaders and church folks at our Harvest University. Any I should add for next time?

Matthew,

Thanks for your blog. This is the first time I'm commenting, and so I hope it's helpful.

Another edited by Carson, which is fabulous, is Worship by the Book (Zondervan).

Marva Dawn's books are also very thought-provoking.

Best is another major thinker on Worship to consider.

True Worship by Vaughan Roberts might be worth adding.

I think the best book is really old and written by various authors...

...it's called "The Book of Psalms"

- I know, there's always one in every crowd. :-)

Thanks, guys!

Patrick - I've only seen Marva Dawn's books on shelves. A friend gave me "Royal Waste of Time", but I've never read it. Perhaps the title put me off. Is that the best place to start with her work?

Ken - If you are who I think you are, I could have written that comment for you!

Pastor Brett - wow. You are my hero. :-)
