Overview

How to determine what music is acceptable to use in worshiping God.
Since God created all things,including the formal properties of music (the nuts and bolts of music that make it what it is capable of being), what a musician does with these properties of music makes him responsible to the Creator.
The author engages his extensive knowledge of the original meanings of ancient Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek musical terms to address the modern day "worship wars." He examines artistic underpinnings to modern music movements and consider multiple hot topics:
·Is all music equal?
·Does being "seeker sensitive" trump all other considerations?
·Does God have an opinion on what music is used to worship Him?
·Is it enough for music to be beautiful?
·What makes for acceptable and unacceptable worship music?
·Is all modern music to be rejected, or endorsed?
·What is the proper priority for hymns, gospel songs, praise choruses and other sacred music?
This is not a simple judgment of what is right or wrong, but rather a finely-honed tool to assess how one chooses music, and why.
