Summary

Even as the sound of modern worship has grown louder, the heartbeat of true worship has grown faint. This is a call for those whose hearts burn to see it revived - who burn with reformation’s fire. Who long to see the purity of worship restored and the Lord’s house of prayer once again reflect the fullness of his glory and the wonders of his heart.  

The Reset is not simply a book on worship, it’s an appeal to the broader worshiping community to once again re-order their lives and practices in accordance with the sacred and priestly calling they were given and zealously return to the heart of worship.

Vital listening for the whole church

Everyone involved in leading worship teams should have read this book. Anyone writing 'worship songs' for the church should read this book. If I led a team, I'd have every member read it and discuss the contents together, chapter by chapter.

Jeremy has articulated very clearly what has gone wrong in the church over the last 30 years, focusing on music and worship. It is written bravely with conviction and read with passion. It methodically outlines what worship is and what God calls us to as followers of Christ. It sets out healthy parameters for worship teams and brings the heart of what matters in our churches to the forefront. It calls out the hype and profit-focused behaviour within the Contemporary Christian Music / Worship 'industry', how these behaviours have formed and what we can do about it. Lastly, it offers a challenge to the reader - a call to a more radical lifestyle of worship.

I cannot recommend this book enough. "It's too intense / deep" is not an excuse for checking out on this topic if you genuinely care about your faith. If you're a leader of a worship team, you should read this and pay attention. If you're a worship pastor, you read this book and make no changes whatsoever in your team, you're not doing your job. Prioritise this.

Hugely challenging, at times uncomfortable and releasing.

I listened to this on the recommendation of a friend and I’m so glad I did. It couldn’t have been read as authentically by anyone other than its author. You can hear his lament and his longing for Jesus to be at the centre of all things, in every syllable. This is a call to purity and abandon in our love of Jesus and our pursuit of partnering with Him honourably in the extension of His kingdom.
Only read this if you are prepared to be deeply challenged.

We should have seen this coming

We should have seen this coming.

A reality check, ego deflation, blunt rebuke from a man that I believe intercedes the heart of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Yet all done in deeply zealous love for the body of Christ and the many parts.

Riddle dives into areas of corporate worship and the Christian music 'industry' that need to be held accountable to the values and lifestyle of Jesus, his word and the character of the Holy Spirit. Riddle makes himself vulnerable in holding up a mirror to himself and to all of us who are involved in any area of worship and asks the simple, yet so often forgotten question "Why do we do what we do (worship)?".

Status, fame, career ambitions, worldly conformation, compromise, borderline and downright blasphemy are exposed for what they are and how they have managed to creep into our churches and worship settings poisoning the hearts and minds of God's people and convincing us that what we're doing is pleasing to Him.

Yet this book is not a rant, or guilt trip. Whilst uncomfortable truths are exposed, it is an invitation to remember to invest deeply into the heart of worship, prayer, good theology, bible nourishment and relationship with the living God in order to tune ourselves to the Spirit when worshipping in any setting.

Many times whilst reading and listening to this book, I felt the Lord's conviction followed by his liberating grace. Conviction to shelve my agenda with worship and through God's grace align my heart at all times with him.

I believe this book will separate the wheat from the chaff. Many who read it will rate it highly, but in the words of Matthew Henry (Pilgrims progress) "Saying and doing are two things".

If you're a worship leader get this book!

Jeremy comes with heart, passion and substance in a call to living lives as whole hearted worshippers of Jesus. I appreciate his candid and idealism regarding the current worship scene. Will certainly recommend it alongside some more practical books on worship leading.

YEAH BABY!

Jeremy gives duplicitous thought and practice in worship a good kick in the nuts with such wisdom and grace that it’s sure to show things for what they really are. Jesus is beautifully center-stage.

Inspiring read by Author

The passion and convictions that come through this reading propelled me into greater life in the spirit. I want to buy the hard copy so I can review and practice the tools Jeremy shared. A must read for everyone who wants to grow into maturity as a worshipper of Jesus in sprint and In truth.

Required Reading...

Required reading for anyone in the worship, local church, or CCM space. It hurts and embraces at the same time. Honors God, Scripture and the Church. Timely and crucial.

All Christ Followers NEED to read this!

This book is heavily anointed and comes straight from the Father’s heart. I believe every Christ Follower IS a worshipper and should read this- It does not matter if you are on a stage of any sorts or not. This book exposes the lies and the cultural influences and trends of today and shows us how to bring restoration back. It confronts the hot topics, encourages you, and ultimately draws you closer to Him. So let this book offend you (aka your flesh), and then get over yourself and allow the Holy Spirit to convict and minister to you. I will be reading this book a few times, just because there is SO much to digest and dwell on. This book has lit a fire within me and has made me want to be a better worshiper.
This book is so well done, I love that Jeremy narrates it and I can’t praise it enough. Thank you, Jeremy, for being the vessel and writing this book for such a time as this!

Why the authors need to read their own books

This is a very sobering, yet quick read. Riddle reads with passion and it feels like a crying out to my generation. Very convicting and easy to follow along. A book I will probably read again and again.

A sobering page turner

This book is as insightful and challenging as it is true. Not only did l find the content to be intensely thought provoking but the passion and urgency in which it was read made it next to impossible for me not to do heart checks throughout the book. l listened to the whole book in 2 sittings.
I'm almost positive there will be some level of pushback from multiple angles but since when is truth not met with opposition. GREAT BOOK...I highly recommend.

Thank you for answering the call Jeremy. Your "Yes" is really inspiring and so appreciated brother.

Much needed for every worship team audition

As a new worship director, this book has been one of the best resources for myself as I’ve asked the Lord to give me His heart for the campus that we’re launching. We have such a healthy worship culture at our church, and I believe that this book showed me that it’s possible to wholeheartedly continue in purity.

I only give the story a 4/5 because I believe that there could have been more concrete instructions as to how to develop this healthy culture — but I believe that this can be established in a second book!

The book our current worship generation needs.

Jeremy writes with a passion and clarity that makes this book a must read and a refreshing encouragement and necessary rebuke for those of us leading worship in the current atmosphere.
