Music is a universal medium of expression. Music can “take us places” unlike any other form of expression. Music, verse and other forms of art and expression are the ways in which we demonstrate that we are made in the image of a Creator, a creative God. As an English Literature major in college, a “man of letters” in my career and avocation, and a lifelong music enthusiast, I look forward to plunging into faith through the eyes of music and verse:
The Songs of Our Native Daughters:
The Gospel is the home of the blues
Passion, love and the defiance of stereotype drives this duo
Living with the End in Mind, terminal, fatally flawed in the image of God
A Musical Detour through the Lush Soundscape of Mongolia with a modern indie rock surprise
These are the stories of some well known musicians who have become followers of Christ
Music that Resonates with the longing for “joy” described by CS Lewis
Skip James, Hard Time Killing Floor:
The blues of Skip James was almost lost to obscurity
A spiritual take on the classic Led Zeppelin song.
Why they aren’t a Christian band and they won’t sing Christian songs
The beautifully haunting collaboration of Jon Foreman, Tim Foreman and Lauren Daigle.
The debt rock music owes to the Civil War
