10 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Michael Thompson on November 1, 1999
Format: Paperback
This book is an exciting and prophetic look at the music of the Church. Whether or not you are directly affiliated with a church music program, you need to read this book!! Harold Best masterfully deals with topics relevant to the Contemporary Church around the world from a biblical, historical, and academic position.
This book is not to equate music with worship, for this is a big mistake that the author intentionally avoids. However, in order to move forward in our thinking and theology of formal community worship, we need to remove music from the discussion and examine it thoroughly on its own. It is at this point that we can begin to see how our worship fits together. Best's book masterfully does this on many levels.

Interesting textbook on the Music Ministry. Dr. Best is a musician and knows what it takes to stay dedicated to the ministry and what it takes to stay that way.

This is simply the best book on Christians and their involvement with the arts, specifically music. Highly recommended. It has a rich theological foundation with practical insights throughout.
