I stumbled upon Amy Langmaack’s favorable review of Essential Worship recently: http://betheproof.org/legacyliving/essential-worship-greg-scheer/. I loved what she said about its accessibility: “While the subtitle of this book is “a handbook for leaders,” I found it highly approachable for anyone.” Meanwhile, I learned that The Art of Worship is being used in the curriculum at Wheaton College. Also at Wheaton College is this interesting article on contemporary worship that quotes an article I wrote. And finally, the Liturgy Letter blog links to Essential Worship and an article I had forgotten writing called “The Four-Fold Pattern of Worship.” It’s nice to know that some of the things I’ve written are being used.
I’m honored to have my entry “Contemporary Praise and Worship Music” included in volume three of Hymns and Hymnody: Historical and Theological Introductions. This picks up where the chapter in Hawn’s New Songs of Celebration Render left off, including an examination of “prophetic” worship, a la Bethel Music.
I’ve been privileged to be included in an exciting new collection of Psalm songs, Timeless: Ancient Psalms for the Church Today. Part of that project is a series of recordings. You can hear a medley of Psalm 78 that includes my song, “People of the Lord:” https://timelesspsalter.com/products/psalm-78-medley-psalm-78
We are rebuilding GregScheer.com from the ground up. Much of what you are looking for will soon be found on these pages.
If you are looking for something from our old site, you can access it here: https://archive.gregscheer.com. If you are following a particular link, add “archive” to the front of the address. So “gregscheer.com/praise/people_of_the_lord.pdf” becomes “archive.gregscheer.com/praise/people_of_the_lord.pdf”
