There's a lot of good material to draw from in seeking to become a better worshiper and worship leader. Noland's writing style is a little bland, and much of the material is cobbled together bits of Scripture, which supports the book's purpose but makes reading it a bit of a chore. Not a superbly written book, but a useful one nonetheless.

Strong refreshing teaching / study on the inner and outer life of the worshipping Christian artist. Also for the layman, Noland pulls no punches and shares very revealing and enlightening information that will help artists who minister in the church grow and prosper in the walk. Highly recommended.

“We should not, therefore, be too taken aback when unexpected and upsetting and discouraging things happen to us now. What do they mean? Why, simply that God in His wisdom means to make something of us which we have not attained yet, and is dealing with us accordingly. Perhaps He means to strengthen us in patience, good humour, compassion, humility, or meekness, by giving us some extra practice in exercising these graces under specially difficult conditions. Perhaps He has new lessons in self-denial and self-distrust to teach us. Perhaps He wishes to break us of complacency, or unreality, or undetected forms of pride and conceit. Perhaps His purpose is simply to draw us closer to Himself in conscious communion with Him; for it is often the case, as all the saints know, that fellowship with the Father and the Son is most vivid and sweet, and Christian joy is greatest, when the cross is heaviest…. Or perhaps God is preparing us for forms of service of which at present we have no inkling.”
“It’s not always easy to spot idolatry in ourselves. Until the Holy Spirit brings it to light, we may be unaware how tight a grip something has on us. For that reason, we should pay close attention to anything we’re convinced we can’t live without.”More quotes…
