C. Thomas5 Stars Out Of 5Small Book, Huge ImpactJune 27, 2019C. ThomasQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book is highly recommended to all church goers from the lay person to pastors. It is a great resource to remind people why singing and what we sing in church is important. It is an easy read for devotions in the morning and the Getty's provide simple challenges along the way to keep you singing or thinking about Christian song lyrics throughout your day to inspire you, your family, and others around you.
Cindy4 Stars Out Of 5Really Enjoyed This Book!!February 28, 2019CindyThis book was very informative about why we sing to and about our Savior. It tells of what happens when God's people sing together and how worship affects everything!! I enjoyed this very much and will most likely read it over and over to keep these principles in the forefront of my mind.

The Getty's book encouraged me to sing praises even when I am alone and don't sound that great. They backed up with scripture our need to glorify God in song, both now and forever.
Academy2525 Stars Out Of 5Fantastic Ministry Resource!October 8, 2018Academy252Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a small, almost gift sized, book but it is loaded with encouragement for God's people to sing to the glory of God. They say more in 150 pages than many say in a multiple volumes on the same subject. It is a brilliant resource for families and churches.
Music and lyrics matter Keith and Kristyn Getty are on a mission to bring worship true worship, in spirit and truth, back to our congregations and families. This book is a great conversation starter for those who want to worship God in this way.
Keith and Kristyn have spent their lives in worship and music in churches and have a great deal of wisdom to share on the topic. They share scripture, quotes and wisdom from famous hymn writers throughout church history. It is a book of encouragement to worship with abandon. It is a book to show us how singing in our congregations and daily lives can be a witness to those who do not know Christ. This would be a great book to read together in small groups and worship team gatherings. Each chapter includes some questions for further discussion.
Creativity comes from God and they encourage those in ministry to stretch those creative wings in the final sections of the book by sharing some specifics with pastors, teachers, worship leaders and songwriters.
I highly recommend this book for your church ministry teams and your own family. It is a fantastic resource!
Kendra5 Stars Out Of 5good resource for song leadersSeptember 3, 2018KendraThis short, easy-to-read book by Keith and Kristyn Getty encourages believers to "sing truth, and sing it as though it is true (99)." They begin by showing from Scripture how we have been created to sing, commanded to sing, and compelled to sing. In the next section of the book, they give practical advice and encouragement for how to develop singing in our families and congregations. The book ends with "bonus tracks" for pastors, worship leaders, musicians and production teams, and songwriters. Each chapter concludes with discussion questions, and using the book for group studies is encouraged.
Seeing that this book opens with nine pages of endorsements by the likes of John MacArthur, Robert and Nancy Wolgemuth, Alistair Begg, Joni Earekson Tada, David Platt and numerous other "big names" gives one the impression right off that if you don't like this book, it's probably you and not the book. =)
Since Sing! is a short book, it isn't a conclusive how-to manual. I am not involved in corporate song/worship leading at this time, but I used to be. I think the book brings up a lot of thoughtful challenges that I would want to take seriously if I am ever in that role again. I was also encouraged to keep my family singing. I recommend this book, especially for those who lead others in singing.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher (B&H) in exchange for my review.
