      The is a great book, I would think the reason must people would attack it, is that they love their god of music and will not give it up.
      This book is easy to read, well written and gives good sources at the end of each chapter.
      Is it a great academic work, NO, but it is a book that is worth having in any library.
      I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the topic.

      I SO enjoyed this book and could hardly put it down. I grew up in a Christian home, but rebelled in my youth. Much music in churches today disturb my husband and me, but we haven't been able to put our "finger" on why. This book helped me understand why. A must read! Praise God.

      All I can say about this book is "wow." I read the first 5 pages and quit. First of all, There was no scripture reference at all in the first 5 pages. This is issue of music cannot be explored away from the scripture because it involves way to much speculation and preference. Secondly, I put it down because just in the first 5 pages there was enough misinformation to warrant reading no more. The author argues on page 3 or 4 I believe that "Before 'CCM' [contemporary Christian music] hymns were played straight, which indicated moral uprightness." My mind wandered at this point to numerous hymns that are found in most any hymn book. "Surely Goodness and Mercy" and a number of other gospel era hymns were written well before CCM came into the picture. "Surely Goodness and Mercy" for example was copyrighted in 1958. Which means Alfred Smith either wrote it that year or before. According to most church music historians the beginning of CCM was the late 60s at the earliest. I could list exhaustively hymns that have swung rhythms that were written well before CCM.Thirdly, being a percussionist all my life, as well as being a Christian all my life. The minute anyone attacks any specific instrument as having certain moral connotations, I dismiss whatever follows. It didn't take Miss Smith long to bring up the drum set, saxophone (which my wife plays amazingly), and the clarinet.Just three of many reasons you shouldn't waste your money and time on this book.Just three of the many reasons why
