From the iPod to the car radio, from film scores to piped-in sounds at the shopping centre, from singing in the shower to recitals in the concert hall, music in an undeniable part of our lives. Not only is music ubiquitous, it is powerful - creating moods, evoking memories and images, uniting people, and providing an outlet for expression for even the most tone-deaf among us. Besides its prominent position in culture, music has obviously had a key role in the worship of God's people.
In "Resounding Truth", the author, Jeremy Begbie, examines the connections between music and theology by engaging Scripture, musical history and contemporary culture, and exploring how God's truth sounds and how it might 're-sound' in the realm of music. His well-rounded study helps us to develop discernment and wisdom, both in thinking about music in the church and Christian life, and in responding to one of culture's most influential touchstones.
