In Music and Ministry: A Biblical Counterpoint, Calvin Johansson looks to God's Word for principles foundational to music ministry. Weaving together great scriptural truths, he establishes the need for a "directional balance" between pastoral contextualization and prophetic purity. In a time of facile musical accommodation of the gospel to culture, Dr. Johansson suggests that a heightened concern for musical style and quality is in order—not for the sake of music, but for the sake of the gospel.

Dr. Johansson lays out scriptural principles that can guide a music leader or pastor in his or her choice of material. It is the most comprehensive "practice what you preach" treatise I've ever read on this subject. Very thought-provoking for leaders who are committed to doing their best for God--even if that requires the hard work of educating your congregation and moving away from music that is not worthy of Him.Was this review helpful?
