About:

Music can either Connect You to God or Drive You to the Devil.

It is time for Christians to recover the full potential of anointed music—in our assemblies and in society, in our services and on the streets, in studios and in schools. Today’s Jesus revolution may only succeed with the help of Holy Spirit–inspired music and an encounter with God.

After reading this book, you will never again listen to a song the same. Discover how you can use music to release the sounds of heaven and change the world.

My thoughts:

The last two chapters is what I expected the whole book to be like. But after reading those last two chapters I can see why the author choose to wade through all the genres of music and how it has impacted society. So I am glad I didn’t stop reading too soon.

The author does an excellent job of showing the reader how different genres have effected society, and often times, negatively. He challenged the reader, especially if you are a songwriter and/or worship leader to focus on having that same impact for the Church.

I have never called myself a songwriter, but I have written many songs, but only a few for the Church, most are for my students. Why? I think I am afraid that they will be silly, that they will lack depth. But if my source is Jesus and the Word how could that ever be so?

The author has definitely stirred something up in me and challenged me to try to write some songs for the Church, songs with depth and good theology. Although, as a worship leader I do always strive for that in the songs that I pick each Sunday.

I think anyone who enjoys music and would enjoy a walk through history in the music world would benefit from this book.
