“In my lifetime, worship has changed from something we do before an audience of God to something a few semi-professionals do for an audience of us. In this thoughtful book, Danny Byram draws from his vast experience in many countries to explore the impact of this change. What have we lost and what do we need to regain? Danny was my worship leader for years, and he has earned the right to be heard.”
Author of What’s So Amazing About Grace?
“We have all heard about ‘worship wars,’ in which people squabble over musical forms. This book digs much deeper. It focuses not on form, but on the what and why of worship. Most Christians have opinions about worship styles. What is more important is making sure that we are truly worshipping. This is a book worth reading.”

“In Wallpaper Worship, Danny Byram defuses all the pointless dichotomies that so many books on worship get lost on. He gets to the core issues as only someone who has been involved for decades in shaping worship services, both great and small, could do. This book is not about changing our methods, but how our hearts can be changed by shifting priorities and focus and by learning to truly care for those who find themselves simply showing up and lining the walls during worship.”
Writer, Teacher, Songwriter
“Danny Byram helps us to understand the necessity of being spiritually alive and thoroughly committed to worship, which begins with God and His glory rather than with ourselves and our preferences. Wallpaper Worship is biblical, practical, and a vital resource for congregations and for those who lead them.”

“Whenever I am speaking at a conference, I am always delighted when Danny is leading the worship. Not only is he a gifted musician, but he understands worship. And, he understands how to help other people worship. This book gleans from his extensive international ministry and years of teaching. It will make you think. It will also make you want to worship like you never have before.”
