Editorial Reviews

WorshipMusic.com
"A tremendous contribution. . . . You won't find a more comprehensive guidebook to worship leading in contemporary contexts. Every church should have this book in their library; every pastor should lean on this resource to help understand how to work with worship leaders; and every worship leader should have this as required reading, whether they are veterans of the craft or just starting out."
Graham Kendrick
"Andy Park has not just written an excellent book, he has given us a rich legacy from the wealth of his experience and wisdom as a worship leader and songwriter, but most of all from the heart and understanding of a worshiper."
Brian Doerksen
"As I read this book, I remember all the times where I have seen Andy live out what he is writing about! There is a huge wealth of practical advice and trustworthy counsel here. His songs are some of my favorites ('Yet I Will Praise,' 'Blessed Be the Name,' 'Multiply Your Love,' 'One Thing I Ask'), and I'm sure he will keep blessing us with more powerful worship for as many years as the Father gives him!"
Sally Morgenthaler
"Styles come and styles go. Through it all, the folks of the Vineyard have consistently drawn worshipers further than they have thought possible: into the very heart of God. Andy Park's To Know You More is the worship leader's intimate but practical guide to facilitating that journey."
Martin Smith
"Andy Park will always be a hero of mine, not because of the songs or acclaim but because of his humility in his lifelong quest to be God's friend. He is the genuine article, and we can all benefit from reading the real thing."
Matt Redman
"In Paul's first letter to Timothy, he reminds him, 'Watch your life and doctrine closely' (1 Tim 4:16). And as it happens, that would be pretty good advice for anyone involved in leading worship too. Andy Park's book does just that in such a wonderful way. He reminds us of the importance of living lives of worship, gives us an insightful look at the theology of worship and, for good measure, throws in loads of helpful, practical advice on how to lead worship. I don't think I've ever read a book quite like this before. Park writes on so many different aspects of worship and does so in a refreshingly transparent way."
