For years, author and pastor J. Louis Cronin wrestled with how worship leaders and pastors could be doing a better job at shepherding God's people when they lead music. He saw a growing need to sing the word. Cronin developed a method for congregations to experience a greater connection between singing and hearing the preached word. As a result, they would know Christ more and see that a worship service isn't just music but the result of several aspects of church life being built together.
In Method to Music, Cronin presents his PSALMS method, telling how he developed it and why it's important. He gives pastors a practical tool to deepen their ministries while broadening their reach through the utilization of saints who are gifted and not merely exploiting the gifts of the saints. It's a means to empower leaders to better delegate the role of shepherd to those who share the platform every Sunday morning.
By detailing a practical approach to worship leadership, Method to Music provides unity between the word to be preached and the word to be sung. It explores the potential for partnership between senior pastors and worship leaders/pastors in shepherding the hearts of a congregation and equipping the saints for the work of the ministry.
