Lee Hinson brings his experience as a teacher, worship leader, and publisher to a review of two new publications examining contemporary worship songs. One book looks at worship in a specific denominational context (the Anaheim Vineyard), and the other canvasses the history of contemporary worship. Hinson concludes with a list of other recommended resources on this topic.
