Book Update #2
It’s been a while since my initial post and the first update about the progress of The Worship Pastor. I’m excited to tell you that its now available for pre-order on Amazon, due out on October 11!
Last week, I finished the hard work of doing some extensive indexing for the book (I find indexes valuable for a host of reasons), and Zondervan is in the middle of working on the book layout. As I read through it yet again, I’m very satisfied with the scope and content. The editors did a wonderful job of smoothing out the readability and accessibility, and I love the way the book moves up and down the “abstraction ladder,” dealing with things both theoretically and practically.
Since my last update, I’ve had a chance to teach on some of the book’s content, at a breakout workshop at the Calvin Symposium and then later for a more extended seminar for worship students at Samford University. I’m very pleased with how folks are responding to the ideas I’ve synthesized. The resonance has confirmed for me that I’m not totally out to lunch!
I’m currently working with a designer who is redoing my graphics to make them look much more uniform. I don’t have many pictures and diagrams, but when they appear, let’s just say they will be pleasing to the eye.
Thank you all for the wonderful support, excitement, and feedback. Spread the love, and I’ll keep you posted.
