Product Description

What a novel idea! Allow the songs of Scripture to inform and shape the songs that we Christians sing and, more, sing them to the Lord as he is revealed in the holy Scriptures. Novel? Yes, and also radical, as Doug O Donnell demonstrates, first, by uncovering the shared themes of the principle songs of the Old Covenant (themes also imbedded in the major songs of the New Covenant) and, then, by using these themes to analyze the content of today s most popular classic hymns and contemporary Christian choruses which, sadly, reveals their tragic discord with the inspired lyrics of Scripture.O Donnell s faithful expositions of the sacred songs coupled with his careful research and pointed analysis of the current church music, plus his recommendations, serve together to make God s Lyrics prophetic. In places (to borrow Bernini s Habakkuk and the Angel image from this book) the reader will grasped by the hair and elevated high to heaven and so see life below as it really is.

Publisher's Description

Are the songs found in the Old Testament applicable to contemporary Christian worship? Douglas O'Donnell answers that question with a resounding 'yes ' He draws out the historical, exegetical, and theological significance of these songs in the life of the Old Testament church and in the light of Christ. He shows the relevance and place of these songs to the contemporary church and includes new lyrics and music so that they can be performed again as part of the Church's canon of worship.
