Why do you lead worship? Often the motives are mixed. You find yourself wanting to point people to Jesus but also feeling a desire to be noticed and praised, to make yourself the center of attention. Stephen Miller is the worship pastor for a large church of young, energetic Christians. He and his band record albums and lead worship for conferences all over the country. He knows the temptation to make himself the show, to pursue fame, to seek the applause of other people. And he has learned to want nothing to do with it. In this book, Miller exhorts his fellow worship leaders to make Jesus the center of all their efforts. He teaches how to do this with Scripture, teaching, prayer, story, and song. In all, Miller’s call for worship leaders is to lead worship, whole-hearted and whole-minded exalting of God, rather than making a spectacle out of it. Worship Leaders, We’re Not Rock Stars will encourage and challenge worship leaders by clarifying their purpose and identity, and by doing so will bless those they lead.

More Than A Worship Leader is a challenge and encouragement to those who lead worship to be more. In today's church world, it's easy to get caught in the trap of performing for people, instead of loving them off and on the stage. This book explores these dynamics off stage, on stage and even promotes the idea of being up-staged as a worship leader. In an age when worship leaders are known primarily for their skill and style, this is a call for them to be known more for their heart. Gary Durbin has been leading worship for more than 20 years and has been in full time local church ministry for over 15 years. The philosophies and insights of this book are a product of his experiences in multiple ministries and churches he's led in and been a part of. It is a valuable tool for those who are just getting started and a great reminder for those who are veterans. With discussion questions at the end of each chapter, it's a great opportunity to grow with those on your worship team as well. The heart behind this book is clear. It's not about a stage. It's not about a title. It's not even about a song. It's about loving God and loving people. Don't settle for being in front of people. Be in the lives of people. It's so much more than a song and you can be more than a worship leader.

Disability and the Politics of Education: An International Readeris a rich resource that deals comprehensively with the many aspects of the complex topic of disability studies in education. For nearly two decades, global attention has been given to education as a human right through global initiatives such as Education for All (EFA) and the Salamanca Statement. Yet according to UNESCO, reaching the goals of EFA remains one of the most daunting challenges facing the global community. Today, millions of the world's disabled children cannot obtain a basic childhood education, particularly in countries with limited resources. Even in the wealthiest countries, many disabled children and youth are educationally segregated from the nondisabled, particularly if they are labeled with significant cognitive impairment. International agencies such as the United Nations and the World Bank have generated funds for educational development but, unfortunately, these funds are administered with the assumption that "west is best," thereby urging developing countries to mimic educational policies in the United States and the United Kingdom in order to prove their aid-worthiness. This "McDonaldization" of education reproduces the labeling, resource allocation, and social dynamics long criticized in disability studies. The authors in this volume explore these subjects and other complexities of disability and the politics of education. In doing so, they demonstrate the importance and usefulness of international perspectives and comparative approaches.
