Reviews - What do customers think about God Songs?
Excellent resource for Christian musicians, songwriters, and worship leaders Nov 30, 1999
I just bought my 6th or 7th copy of this book because I keep giving mine away to others. It is filled with excellent thoughts relating to Christian music, being an overall musician, and being a Christian. The thing that I enjoyed the most was the recognition that Christian musicians need to be trained, prepared, and open to where the worship leads, but also should not use the worship stage as a garage band jumpoff for self-promotion. I believe every Christian musician should read this book (AFTER THE BIBLE) and that it would be quite good as a worship team study.
Equipping, compelling, refreshing... Nov 30, 1999
Not only is this book useful for songwriters but for worship leaders and ministry musicians as well.
Baloche and the Owens' navigate the theory and mechanics of song composition without being too lofty for beginners or too condescending for veterans. Songwriters and worship leaders should get this book for its clinical value alone.
Of special interest to writers of worship songs is the authors' perspective that it is more difficult to write a good congregational song than a good artist song-the implication being that most of us assume the opposite. They call attention to the struggle, and necessary self-denial a songwriter experiences when trying to create truly great melodies with fresh, imaginative lyrics that can all be readily owned by common, untrained singers. It was both freeing and compelling to read through their thoughts on that.
The book also examines the role that music plays in leading and expressing the emotions, and how valuable that is in completing the worship experience of the Church. As a worship leader and songwriter I was refreshed and inspired by the authors' plea on behalf of the Church, "Please, help us feel something!"
