From the Publisher"Saliers, a church musician and professor of theology and worshipat Candler School of Theology, teams up with daughter Emily,one-half of the popular group the Indigo Girls.... Pull up achair and sit in the family room as these two share the placeswhere their views on music connect and diverge, demonstrating howto ‘make musical judgments, but not in a judgmentalmanner.’ Musicians, music-lovers and indeed all those devotedto the ‘spirituality of daily life’ will beinspired."
"I found warmth, wisdom, and love to be present on every page ofthis book. Emily and her father, Don, have found a way to have adeeply meaningful conversation about their life experiences andshare it with the reader. The result is this beautiful expressionof music as many things—healer, gift, symbol of freedom andcommunity, and agent of change."
—Mary Chapin Carpenter
"Emily and her dad have created a beautiful celebration of howmusic and spirit connect us all."
"In this sweetheart of a book, Don and Emily Saliers do far morethan write convincingly about the healing power of music. They showus how it works by letting their own love of ‘deepsong’ lead them across generational, aesthetic, and religiousdifferences into a place of such holy listening to one another thateven the angels lay down their tambourines."
