    1. I bought this book in 2002 or 2003. I read the first chapter and then quit for some reason or another. It's an easy and quick read, so I decided it was time to finish it or get rid of it.I come from a charismatic background, so I know where Darlene is coming from, but now I see some holes in this type of approach as well. I think the most obvious one is that worship and praise seem to be emotion or expression based--what I say about God, what I feel about Him in my heart. No doubt this is an ele [...]

    2. This book has been completely eye-opening for me. I can honestly say that this book has changed my life. “Extravagant Worship” by Darlene Zschech was written to inspire people to become extravagant worshipers. Through sharing her experiences within her journey of becoming an extravagant worshiper, Darlene paints a clear picture of what it truly means to worship God. She expresses the importance of worship not only through music, but through our every day lives. “Extravagant Worship”, tho [...]

    3. This was a book that was so encouraging, and uplifting. I learned so much about what worship truly is, as opposed to what worship is perceived to be.

    4. Worship leader, Zschech, gives the reader her response to the love she feels from God. A bit of a testimonial, but also a great resource for those that lead the singing in their local church.

    5. Darlene Zschech begins her book Extravagant Worship with the woman who anointed Jesus’ feet with costly perfume. This woman is an extravagant worshipper. Darlene describes this woman’s worship as: excessive, abundant, expensive, superfluous, lavish, costly, precious, rich, priceless, and valuable. This story is a great introduction and explanation of the theme – extravagant worship.The book covers all the aspects that create extravagant worship such as, having a godly lifestyle, talent, th [...]

    6. A central part of my life includes the need to connect with G-d, and to read and explore my faith and my connection with G-d. This book allows you to reflect on Him and to pray to Him, and to praise His name. This book inspires you to become so much more, to redefine your life, to explore new paths and to allow G-d to truly enter your life. It allows you to understand worship as so much more than going to temple. It allows you to see worship as a mode of life, as a philosophy of living, and as a [...]

    7. It's not an exclusive read for the worship leaders. Even the church goers can read and relate. It may talk about how we worship but we can also apply some of the points in our everyday lives. Somehow it helps renew our hope and faith. Extravagant worshipping is not just for the worship leaders, each of us should lead our worship in our hearts and really worship extravagantly. We need not to be really good, but we should know that in ourselves that our worship to God is the best we have, because [...]

    8. Insightful!I quite enjoyed this book because it took worship out of the conventional church building setting and brought it to everyday, real life. And it's actually what the Father demands from me. And it's my choice tho respond to that calling and be an extravagant, excellent worship. That is not possible if I don't lay everything down at the feet of Jesus throughout the week and be obedient in everything. I would have liked to see more personal examples, that's why I gave a 4 stars rating ins [...]

    9. While it has one or two good quotes, this book wasn't worth the time it took to read. Some of her ideas seem good and scriptural. Other ideas might be good, but who knows where she's getting them from she just seems to spout them as truisms with no support. Overall, there is a bit too much hype and "dream for success" kind of philosophy in the book. I'd wish for a more humble and profound book about worship. This one, in the end, was kind of annoying for me.

    10. An excellent, inspiring and thought provoking book. Very practical and I love Darlene's obvious passion for the church and bringing your best before God to encourage others to also engage in worship with Him.Well worth reading for anyone involved in the worship team or wanting to reach others through worship music. A great read for those who want advice on how to be an authentic church member in any congregation.

    11. Extravagant worship is being offered to our King across the planet, increasing in intensity and intimacy… cutting across all denominational barriers and all religious preferences. Our heart's quest should be that as God's eyes search the earth, He would find us to be an extravagant worshipper. May this book will not only finds itself in ones hands… but that it finds itself planted in our heart.

    12. Great Non-Fiction book for church goers. The Author really focused on the worshipers attitude while praising the Lord in a worship service. A lot of the book was geared toward a worship team member or leader. But I still enjoyed the nuggets of wisdom for the average church attender. This is a good pairing with "Kiss of Heaven," also written by Darlene Zschech.

    13. I enjoyed this book. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I am neither a worship singer or musician and there is much in this book that is specific for them. In spite of that, I constantly found myself writing little quotes here and there that inspired me in my journey to be closer to God and to worship Him more. I highly recommend this book.

    14. Como adoradora, ser una sin reservas sin restricciones es esencial. No importa el lugar ni la hora, heme aqui Señor. Que cuando busques y mires a la Tierra, puedas hallar en mi una adoradora sin reservas!

    15. I loved this book. Darlene is such a humble person who just wants to worship her King but wants others to do the same. She gives great insight about worshiping God in that secret place. The way she writes and the experiences she talks about really makes you want to worship God in a new way.

    16. This book has long been one of my favorites for dispelling the idea that worship is mere song. Darlene Zschech is an incredible singer and her heart as a worshiper is shown quite clearly in her writing here.

    17. This is a must-read book for every worshippers (both personally in daily live and on stage), as the basic to prepare our heart and attitude towards the worshipping action as a believer. Well done. Blessed you all :)

    18. I read this about 10 years ago and took it out again this past fall. God had many different things to show me this time - I love how He does that:). For those who are looking for some insight into worship through music, this is a book you want to spend some time reading.

    19. What a good insight to the growth of a Spirit-Led worship leader. Her personal touches in this book were unexpected and refreshing.

    20. read years ago and have begun in again recently Oh to be a worshippermeday maybe I will really be a real worshipper of the LIVING GOD!!

    21. Great book, especially for musicians that came out of an ambitious secular entertainment field. Easy reading and application to all areas of ones walk of worship as a whole.
