Worship Matters by Bob Kauflin has been the definitive resource for Christian creative’s since it was released in 2008. Whether you serve in the music, production or creative team, the insights in this book are profound and practical.

“Bob loves God, values theology, and cares about people. This mix is found throughout this wonderful and helpful book. Worship Matters will inspire you as a worshiper and spur you on as a leader of worship.”
Matt Redman

“Bob Kauflin is teaching a new generation to take corporate worship seriously in a fashion that is simultaneously biblically faithful and addressing today’s culture.”
D. A. Carson

The follow up to Worship Matters is titled True Worshipers. This book was released recently and has been 7 year’s in the making.

Who should read True Worshipers?

Kauflin believes it “is for anyone who wants to understand more biblically how the worship of our meetings relates to the worship of our lives. It’s for those who want to be the kind of worshiper God says He’s seeking.”

The chapters are as follows:

  1. True worshipers Matter
  2. True worshipers Receive
  3. True worshipers Exalt
  4. True worshipers Gather
  5. True worshipers Edify
  6. True worshipers Sing
  7. True worshipers Keep Singing
  8. True worshipers Encounter
  9. True worshipers Anticipate

Each chapter builds on the last and helps us to think more theologically about worship. What better gift is there for Pastors looking to invest in their Creative staff/leaders?!

Endorsements include:

“This important book will inform, instruct and inspire. Bob reminds us there’s a reason behind our rejoicing, and there’s substance beneath our singing. Bob patrols the theological borders of this book like a trusty doberman who won’t allow you to trespass into unhealthy attitudes and approaches in worship. But for all the patrolling, there’s even more pastoring. As you read the pages of this book, be open to the whispers of the Holy Spirit. Be ready for him to guide you, remind you, re-align you, or surprise you—for your greater good and his greater glory.”
Matt Redman

“Brilliant. Freeing. Needed. Worship is often limited to the walls of the church. In True Worshipers, Bob Kauflin reminds us that worship isn’t a Sunday morning routine but rather an everyday lifestyle.”
Louie Giglio
