The definitive guide to the meaning of today’s most popular praise and worship songs. Few things influence Christians’ understanding of the faith more than the songs they sing in worship. The explosion of praise and worship music in the last fifteen years has profoundly affected our experience of God. So what are those songs telling us about who God is? In what ways have they made us more faithful disciples of Jesus Christ? In what ways have they failed to embody the full message of the gospel? Working with the lists of the most frequently sung praise and worship songs from recent years, the authors of this book offer an objective but supportive assessment of the meaning and contribution of the Christian music that has been so important in the lives of contemporary believers.

For years, Vine’s Expository Dictionary has been the standard word study tool for pastors and laypeople, selling millions of copies. But sixty-plus years of scholarship have shed extensive new light on the use of biblical Greek and Hebrew, creating the need for a new, more accurate, more thorough dictionary of Bible words. William Mounce, whose Greek grammar has been used by more than 100,000 college and seminary students, is the editor of this new dictionary, which will become the layperson’s gold standard for biblical word studies.Mounce’s is ideal for the reader with limited or no knowledge of Greek or Hebrew who wants greater insight into the meanings of biblical words to enhance Bible study. It is also the perfect reference for busy pastors needing to quickly get at the heart of a word’s meaning without wading through more technical studies.What makes Mounce’s superior to Vine’s?· The most accurate, in-depth definitions based on the best of modern evangelical scholarship· Both Greek and Hebrew words are found under each English entry (Vine’s separates them)· Employs both Strong’s and G/K numbering systems (Vine’s only uses Strong’s)· Mounce’s accuracy is endorsed by leading scholars

Wren discusses the thorny issues involving congregational singing today: the indispensable nature of public worship; contemporary worship music; the lyrics of different types of congregational songs, such as choruses, hymns, chants and ritual songs; and the importance of using hymn lyrics as poetry. He shows why hymn lyrics are altered throughout time and how they illustrate theology.
Levite Praise delves deeply into the Scriptures to help worship leaders and worshipers develop a full understanding of what it means to direct and take part in God’s perfect model for praise and worship. It addresses the differences of opinion on the topic and offers biblical counsel with regard to how praise and worship should be carried out and how its leadership should be organized.
Are you passionate to know what the Bible says about worship and music? Confused by the myriad voices trumpeting their opinions about worship and music? This book not only gives you a Genesis to Revelation concordance of passages dealing with worship and music but also explores many texts critical for the church today. Practical and heartfelt applications from a pastor's heart punctuate the book, always with an eye to the final authority, the inspired Word of God. "What saith the Scriptures? Many preferences and opinions have been expressed, but the important source has not always been considered. Dr. Kurtz makes clear principles and patterns of music in worship that we need to make basic and should keep primary as we endeavor to honor God." - Dr. Warren Vanhetloo, Retired Seminary Dean "It is with great joy and excitement that I heartily recommend Brother Dean Kurtz's book to all pastors and musicians! We have been longing for, desperately needing an exegetical study of music and worship from the Word of God. You will find his insights right on target, his theological perspectives sound and his musical expertise encouraging. Your heart will be blessed." -Dr. Robert Loggans, Senior Pastor, Calvary Baptist Church, Watertown, WI Dean Kurtz, (BS Music Education; BS Bible; MA Sacred Music; Doctor of Ministry) has been passionate to communicate the Word about worship and music for over twenty-five years.
