Product Description

"How many times have I looked at a musical term on a score and wished that I had some immediate in-depth information on its definition and use? I cannot count the number. It has been frustrating and sometimes embarrassing.

"So, I thought I would choose fifty-two of the most used musical terms, one for each week of the year---if that has any special significance---and write about them. It has been very stimulating to see these terms from a new perspective and to realize that each one could be considered in a dimension of spiritual application.

"In this application, one factor above all others would remain preeminent in our thinking: the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ. For he is harmony and balance. He is the source of every melodic line and rhythm. He is music in all its depth and multifaceted character.

"May the crescendos and diminuendos of your life experience be controlled by the Lord and may his promised victories be yours."
-Jack Coleman in his Preface

Publisher's Description

This unique devotional is written expressly with the musically inclined in mind. Each of the fifty-two devotions is titled with a musical term, such as "Allegro" or "D. S. Al Fine," using that term to form the content. After a definition of the term, author Jack Coleman offers an insightful devotional lesson readers can learn from. Each devotion includes Scripture quotations and musical settings that illustrate the musical terms.
Musicians, students of music, and anyone who enjoys music and wants to learn more about how God uses it to inspire and instruct us will love this one-of-a-kind devotional. Includes a foreword by Cliff Barrows, music and program director for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, and endorsements from Michael W. Smith, Kurt Kaiser, and Don Moen.
