Too many Christians assume that the music they like is the music God likes. By forbidding the music they don't like, they alienate the young. Ed Christian argues that music should be judged not by personal tastes, but by its spiritual fruits. God approves of music that leads people closer to Him, whether we like it or not. When it comes to music for the worship service, however, unity is important. Appropriate church music doesn't alienate or offend, but brings people together and lifts them up to God.
The author examines the arguments of those who reject contemporary Christian music in favor of traditional classics and shows how God can use the new music to bless churches and change lives.
