Worship Wars: What the Bible Says About Worship Music

Dr. Robert Bakss

ISBN 9780994429919

LIST PRICE: $24.99


Many grapple today with what the ‘proper’ style of music for church should be and sadly it becomes a worship war. Like the movie Star Wars, the battles rage from episode to episode, with Bible verses being used as the proverbial light sabres to attack and defend each other.

This book answers the questions amongst Christians and churches today in regard to ‘worship music’ and appropriate styles and genres. It is a biblical guide to worship music spanning early church history to the present day; providing clear, concise guidelines, Biblical principles and practical suggestions to support the implementation of a balanced blend of traditional and contemporary worship music in churches.

“Finally! An experienced Christian leader within the Independent Baptist movement has stepped forward to lovingly express the counterargument to the often heard traditionalist point of view. Robert Bakss addresses the concepts of Christian worship with humility and humour, being firmly planted in biblical theology. I thank him for boldly taking a biblical stand knowing the ridicule and unnecessary separation it will bring.”
Pastor Josh Teis, Lead Pastor
Southern Hills Baptist Church, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

“How does an Independent Baptist pastor of 30 years who was stuck in traditions of the church, defend the use of modern, contemporary worship music? To find out, read this book. “Worship Wars” is a thought-provoking book that will challenge the reader to ask the question, “What does the Bible say about worship music in the church?” I found Pastor Bakss’ arguments to be excellent. This book is a great read and is bound to challenge one’s thinking about worship music from a biblical viewpoint.”
Pastor Eric Capaci, Senior Pastor
Gospel Light Baptist Church, Hot Springs, Arkansas, USA

“After reading ‘Worship Wars’ I have learned a great deal now about church music and recognise which categories I belong to. Thankfully I have changed my preferences. My God knows I needed a wake-up call.”
Margaret Gorle, aged 82
Member of Lighthouse Baptist Church, Rockhampton for 40 years

“The complex issue of worship music and styles is one that cannot, and must not, be dismissed or ignored. Robert Bakss has addressed this controversial subject with characteristic thoroughness and objectiveness. You might argue with his conclusions, but you cannot accuse him of being harsh in spirit, slothful in research, or sloppy in exegesis. This book cannot be ignored!”
Mark Tossell, Pastor and Author
Sydney, Australia.

“Worship Wars: What the Bible says about worship music” tackles one of the hottest topics challenging many churches and Christians today, thoughtfully, methodically, logically, sincerely, and compassionately. As a professional singer, vocal coach, and music teacher any questions arising in my mind while reading the book were discussed within the next page or next chapter! Pastor Bakss has put forth a very thought provoking discussion, backed up with Scriptures from beginning to end.”
Linda Coombes, Singing Teacher

Principal and Owner of Bel Canto Singing & Music Academy
