"Missions and Music"

You can read more posts from the series by using the Table of Contents in the right sidebar.

One of missionaries most challenging issues is what kind of music to use as they plant indigenous churches. Two extremes exist: on the one hand are missionaries who simply impose American musical forms on the foreign church; on the other hand are those who indiscriminately adopt the forms of the native culture in their worship.

In order to attempt to help with this issue, we are going to dedicate the entire month of January to this issue. Each of our authors will seek to address the following question from their own unique perspective:
