Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Finally! Thank you, Brad Herring and Focal Press, for bringing us a terrific overview of Technical Production for Houses of Worship. Your experience, skill, and artistry are evident throughout. I especially appreciate your attitude of humility and step-by-step suggestions for dealing with 'choir complaints.' This immediately is required reading for my production volunteers." - John Weygandt, Scenic and Lighting Designer, Willow Creek Community Church

""I really like Brad's heart for the local church. I think he approaches the subject in a genuine and honest manner that is encouraging." - Mike Sessler, ChurchTech Arts

"I'm very excited about having this book available for my church, and for churches where I assist in ministry." - David Scott, Worship Leader and Associate director of Georgia Festival Chorus

"I like the conversational, friendly tone. It makes the material seem accessible to the reader. It's as if the author is seated next to the reader at the mixing console and is pointing out things to watch for." - Bruce Bartlett, audio engineer and author of Practical Recording Techniques

"What a great book! Brad has taken his years of audio/ visual training and personal experience and produced an excellent resource for every Worship Leader and every Audio Visual Tech. From the most basic sound, lighting and video systems to fairly complex systems, Brad has put together an encyclopedia of knowledge that builds on the basics to provide an easy transition to larger and more sophisticated systems. Not only does he address the 'how to,' but the 'why we should and why we should not's' associated with this important area of our ministry. Brad has a heart for excellence in Worship that resounds throughout the book. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned veteran, I heartily recommend this book to you. I believe that you, like I, will count it one of your most valuable tools in ministry." - Dennis J. Brown, Associate Pastor Worship Arts, First Baptist Church
