Book Brief: The Singing Thing

The Singing ThingThe Singing Thing by John L. Bell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Never heard of this guy, but he’s very thoughtful. The theology was suspect in places, but it’s a great book overall.

Here’s a good quote:
The chances are that never again will every one of these people be in exactly the same place singing these particular hymns and songs. At the next service of worship some will be missing, others will be new and the likelihood is that the liturgy will require a different selection of texts for singing. So, if we can but sense it, every time a congregation sings, it is offering an absolutely one-time-gift to its Maker. It is important that every song sung is offered to God with that sense of uniqueness. God is worth it.
