Top 10 Books For Worship Leaders + Bonus Free eBook

by Bobby Gilles

in Worship Leading

Our son Logan Gilles, obliviously reading a book as he literally sinks inside the fold of our leather couch.

Like father like son: 12-year old Logan reads a book while the couch swallows him.

One of the most frequent questions people ask me is “What books do you recommend?” This is tough, because I read a lot. As you can see from the picture of my son Logan here, it’s in the blood.

But I’ll give it a shot: 10 top books that I’d recommend to all worship leaders (besides the Bible of course, which you should read daily). And at the bottom of this post I’ll link to a helpful new free e-book that all worship leaders should download.

I’ll follow this up in the weeks to come with Top 10 books for worship songwriters and Top 10 books for church communications professionals. As in this post, I’ll link to the page for each book.

Now without any further ado, here are the 10 favorite My Song In The Night books for worship leaders, pastors and ministers-of-music. I won’t attempt to rank them in order. If you’re a worship leader, you should read all of these:
