Good (biblically based) books on the topic of worship
I'm looking for some suggestions to add to my reading list of books on worship to deepen my own understanding. I'm not really wanting someone's supposings or musings nor a "how-to" book but more a "why-we-do" philosophy of worship type writing based on the Scriptures. I'm also open to other resources, knowing that I frequently will do a video search for a topic and find a trusted speaker on the issue and the watch or listen to that via internet while doing things around the house (for instance: google -Ravi Zacharias - atheism). Thanks!
I replied to this last night, but it seems the link I put in the post to the book I'm recommending on Amazon got my post cut. So, here it is without the link, in its entirety:
I'm currently studying worship at Spring Arbor University, and I could suggest a whole pile of books, depending on what you really want to learn about. Most of them are on the academic side, written by theologians with a PhD rather than the trendiest worship leader who wrote the latest hit song.
One that is a pretty easy read (as academic books go) is written by Dr. Keith Drury, who teaches at Indiana Wesleyan University. It's called "The Wonder of Worship: Why We Worship the Way We Do"
If you can narrow your topic a bit ... like music for worship etc. I can suggest more books.
