Back to Basics

Over the past several months I have written a series of short articles in which I dealt with the major categories of a biblical philosophy of worship and music in a brief way. My desire was to introduce the basics of these issues to those who hadn’t carefully considered them.

I have the posts linked below, and I have also converted the posts into a short eBook. My hope is that this will be a similar help to folks who want a brief introduction to these important matters or who would like to introduce others to them.

Once you have been introduced, I would recommend reading other more in-depth articles here at and reading my books, Worship in Song and Sound Worship.
