In the 20 years I have been in Christian broadcasting, no single issue has been more explosive than the subject of Christian music in the church. Scott Aniol’s much-needed book takes on this issue in an incisive manner, and he rightly points to the foundational issue of religious affections that underlies the entire debate. Christians have allowed Hollywood and popular culture to shape their affections, rather than Holy Scripture. As a result, they have made God over into someone who will accommodate their profane and carnal musical tastes in worship. Scott Aniol’s thoroughly biblical approach is centered on the belief that God does have something to say about the music we listen to and the music that is used in worship. Christians owe a debt of gratitude to the author for his scholarship and clarity on this essential subject.
