Reviewed by Dave Massey

I defy anyone to locate a reference anywhere in the Bible to 'Worship Leaders' - I guess the title here refers to the three named individuals who lead singing at various meetings. Unfortunately worship and singing have become synonymous these days. Climbing out of the soapbox for a second, you will find nearly all of the songs in this book in other collections and because of this the point of the collection becomes a little blurred. There are short autobiographies and the occasional page with a Bible quotation presumably chosen by Dave, Chris or Noel. Songs like "So Freely", "Reigning In All Splendour", "All Heaven Declares" and "Jesus Shall Take The Highest Honour" will undoubtedly sell the book along with a nice 'open' style of presentation, but for me the book is a self-indulgent shelf filler (try saying that fast!) that adds nothing to the collection of usable songs that I already have at my disposal.
