"Worship outside the Music Box" calls for Christians to set aside personal preferences, to welcome different musical and liturgical genres, to learn from each other about what pleases God, and to model His love for a multiethnic, multicultural congregation of believers. The importance of bringing diverse styles of worship together cannot be overstated. Dr. Newby explains that God is glorified by the sincere worship practices of all of His children, and blending these practices edifies each of us. Examples of multiethnic worship gatherings from the Bible and Scripture support on the necessity of all-inclusive worship are included in this timely book.

Brilliant, thought-provoking and timely treasurer by a smart, sincere and passionate worship leader, pastor and professor. Dr. Newby's candid and poignant writing helps to stimulate a much needed conversation of how to reconcile the pursuit of righteousness in light of the present reality of a troubled society. Full of wonderful gems and quotable metaphors, my favorite being, "genre is for people and worship is for God," this book aids in the much needed goal of ending all worship wars and moving towards coming together as God's children to worship together in unity. The concept of the Music Box is a wonderful illustration that works well and will aid in extending the conversation across the country, world and the generations. This is a quick, must-read!
