I found this book tremendously interesting, although not what I would call a 'quick read.' I wish that somewhere during my studies towards two degrees in music that I had been asked to study music through a philosophical understanding of time. Now, as a deacon of the Presbyterian Church (USA) and a professional musician and composer, I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of learning more about theology and the Christian faith through the eyes (ears?!) of music. Unfortunately, to grasp truly the depth of the book, I would have to become proficient in jazz improvisation. I had a little trouble with the section on improvising in advance. Probably because I'm not very familiar with jazz styles, I had difficulty understanding the correlation of what seems to me a minor improvisatory technique with the profound anticipation of the end of time. I was also surprised that the author didn't specifically mention how the horn anticipates the recap to the first movement of Beethoven's Eroica Symphony, such a famous example.
