The church has always been tempted to adopt the world's values---even in music. Without indulging in culture-bashing, Johansson shows how much modern church music has degenerated into world-affirming pap with bland musical structures and insipid lyrics. Both words and music can---and should---communicate the Gospel and effectively disciple listeners. Johansson explains how you can do it. 160 pages, softcover from Hendrickson.
