Great Book

by Judith on Jan 16, 2014

Very well written book. I felt it fairly explained the pro's & con's of this movement of moving away from traditional Hymns of the Church.. The old Hymns carried a message that the new music doesn't convey.

JUST THINK/PRAY ABOUT IT!!

by Sheepherder on Dec 14, 2007

i note & must appreciate author's strong involvement in 'rock' music background, then transferring his skills & experience into the contemporary church music scene. The prayers & spiritual influence of his wife had to be a KEY to his developing insight into himself. I first recognize a tremendous 'humility' as he became gradually more honest with himself, family & others to the point of totally leaving 'contemporary' music. I've been in music all my life (77), still play trumpet (having fun with Dixieland at home) & have 3 grown children (42-50) who are music majors, 2 with Masters, a son & son-in-law are organists. But none of us with 'rock' background like this author. Hence, he has introduced me into a 'rock' world I've had absolutely no experience. Though this book has greatly influenced me & I've bought several copies for "others", I believe many 'contemporary' folk will NOT give this author a chance to enter their own little "show place", where they're enjoying a lot of attention & getting the old 'ego' needs met!!

unconvincing

by Sororitas on Aug 2, 2007

I tried to read this with an open mind, The writing actually turned me off. I was really hoping for a factual, unbiased approach to this topic, but instead found no solutions to the problems he wrote about.
