Can We Rock the Gospel?: Rock Music's Impact on Worship and Evangelism
- Dan Lucarini
- John Blanchard
Few subjects generate more heat in the Christian church today than the use of music in worship and evangelism. Every musical form and every way of expressing it has as many detractors as it does promoters. Yet in recent years most of the conflicts have centered on what is generically known as rock music, which has become an increasingly dominant--and divisive--issue since it first slipped into church life some forty years ago.
For some Christians it is by far the best way of expressing their faith and of sharing it with unbelievers, while for other Christians it is by far the worst. Does the truth lie somewhere between these two extremes? Does God endorse music of every kind? Can we 'cut and paste' secular rock music and 'Christianize' it in the process? Should the Christian church unite in bringing rock music to the altar or in sending it to the bonfire?
Two respected Christian leaders and best-selling authors who together have many years of hands-on experience in worship, preaching, evangelism and music have combined to produce a book that examines this controversial subject, using both recent evidence and time-tested truths.
They come to a clear conclusion. They will not leave you neutral.
