Rejoice with trembling

Bob Kauflin, in one of the promotional videos for his new book, comments on the "worship wars" and the need for healthy tensions in the way we think about worship:

This is one of several short presentations presenting some of the material from Worship Matters: Leading Others to Encounter the Greatness of God [most of the other videos are linked at the end of this one]. The book is described at Amazon, where the reader reviews are very favorable:
Combining biblical foundations with real-world application, a pastor and professional songwriter guides worship leaders and pastors to root their corporate worship in unchanging scriptural principles rather than divisive trends.

Nothing is more essential than knowing how to worship the God who created us. .... 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.
Mark Tubbs at Discerning Reader:
Bob’s heart for biblical, passionate worship pervades every page of this book. His writing is littered with Bible, especially the psalms, that manual of Old Testament worship. But this isn’t merely a devotional on a few aspects of worship. No, this is a handbook about how to pursue more biblical, more humble hearts in the midst of a task pregnant with tensions.
Kauflin also has a website, WorshipMatters, where, among much else, can be found the announcement of a conference this summer on what sounds a very profitable topic:
