Toby Jones has opened my eyes to the fact that God communicates through popular culture. The Gospel According to Rock
has helped me hear God's word in the music I listen to, whether it's a Beatles song or a Springsteen anthem. --David Crouse, Film Producer, The Magic Never Ends: The Life and Work of C.S. LewisThe Gospel According to Rock
should be on everyone's reading list. For all who are spiritual but not necessarily religious, Jones affirms many spiritual things we've experienced in our own lives through creation, music, collective consciousness, and a master plan. You'll find yourself singing some of your favorite rock songs with a new understanding of both the rock legends who wrote them and the Big Guy himself. --Roger Tallman, Emmy Winning Composer/Producer, Tallman Music, New York
