In Tune with God
Church music, Christian worship
Worship and music have been intimately connected since biblical times. Yet music in worship has become a point of contention—a great chasm separating the young and the not-so-young, the conservative and the liberal, and, quite possibly, the members of the church you attend. Is there a solution to this ongoing battle? Are there really certain styles of music that are good and others that are bad? How are we to honor God with our diverse musical tastes and talents?
Lilianne Doukhan takes on this sensitive issue with a remarkable combination of finesse and refreshing candor. Building upon the foundation of what music is, and what it is not, she explores the experience and meaning of music, its history down through the centuries, the current challenges of music ministry, and the genuine role of music as a component of worship.
Dr. Doukhan’s analysis of the “musical experience” is a very practical guide for pastors, musicians, and laity in dealing with church worship music. The principles and lessons set forth in this book are sorely needed at this time.
