According to author Scott Aniol, “Few books have been written that carefully distinguish between secular music that we listen to every day, and sacred music.” Worship in Song discusses foundational matters before delving into how readers can make God-pleasing choices regarding the secular and sacred music to which they listen. Contending that a primarily theological misunderstanding is at the heart of the confusion surrounding music, Aniol addresses issues including:
- What does Sola Scriptura really mean?
- The nature of biblical affections
- The essence of biblical worship
- The purpose of music in the church
In addition, Aniol discusses cultural issues such as meaning in music, the nature of pop culture, and the different kinds of emotion. Each chapter concludes with discussion aids, perfect for small group study and classroom application.
