New Publication: Wiser Than Despair by Quentin Faulkner
I believe that one of the most significant books to be written on the relationship between the Christian church and music is Quentin Faulkner’s Wiser Than Despair. I use the book all the time and recommend it often.
Unfortunately, the book is out of print and only comes in hard cover, thus making it hard to acquire at a reasonable price.
Religious Affections Ministries has obtained the rights to print this monumental work in soft cover, and it is available today.
You need to get your hands on this book and consume its contents. It will be well-worth your time if you do.
