Item description for Discipling Music Ministry: Twenty-First Century Directions by Calvin M. Johansson...

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.

Publishers Description

What is the role of music in the twenty-first century church--and what should it be? Johansson examines this and other crucial questions concerning church music and offers "redirection" for the function of music ministry in the life of the modern church.

Reviews - What do customers think about Discipling Music Ministry: Twenty-First Century Directions?

Everyone absolutely must-and I mean must- read this book  May 20, 2005
This is the most challenging, incredible, deep, true, well thought out case for the utter destruction of everything that is wrong in 'worship' services today. And that is coming from a person who was just required to read nine books for my first semester of worship leading school I just wrapped up (its a spirit filled non-denominational school by the way). This book is in many ways like 'Worship Evangelism' by Sally Morgenthaler, but 'Worship Evangelism' is like an experienced surf boarder, while 'Discipling Music Ministry' is the tsunami. 'Worship Evangelism' seemed to have a tendency to support its case by running polls and doing market research on what unchurched Chester Molester and Suzy Satanist would enjoy doing in church, while 'Discipling Music Ministry' revealed an intellectualy yet spirit filled view of what they need, which is not a song and dance routine or melodramatic hype. I mainly recomend this book to other spirit filled believers because there is a saying that goes something like, "You do'nt fully know what your side of the story is until you've heard the other side's". I highly recomend both books though because they both basicaly have the same overall message. However, 'Worship Evangelism' is a loving gentle nudge toward a more biblical music ministry, which will leave you thinking, "Hmm, maybe I'll implement those ideas someday. I know, I'll make it my New Year's resolution!" where 'Discipling Music Ministry' will unexpectedly detonate on you, leaving shrapnel and body parts lying everywhere, while still allowing you to desperately limp towards change.
Excellent Resource for Church Music  Apr 17, 2000
This is an excellent book outlining the proper style for church music. It is surprising that the author takes a classical approach to music coming out of the Assembly of God background. I especially appreciated the examples of good hymnody.

The only shortcomings are 1) there was too much of an emphasis on chant for my taste, 2) also the book is lacking in scriptural support for the author's assertions on music style.

This is highly recommended for church leaders and music ministers.
