Music Evangelism: Spreading the Gospel Through Music
‘Music Evangelism’ is a detailed journalistic investigation of the cultural phenomenon known as ‘Christian rock music’. Looking at the current scene in the UK and US ‘Music Evangelism’ asks questions about the purpose, potential and credibility of Contemporary Christian Music (CCM). It also attempts to answer the criticism that is often levelled against this ‘unusual’ art form. Is CCM the Devil ‘in sheeps clothing’ or ‘simply a pale imitation of the real thing?’ Is it in danger of becoming a consumerist whim? And what about the faith of Bono and U2? The author addresses these issues with a piece of academic writing that is both easy to understand and enjoyable to read.
