  • Jazz Blues And Spirituals


    African American Spirituals . . . are the root of almost all American music, being the forebears of both the Blues – ?music that expresses the burden of so-called ‘freedom’ and hardships of everyday life, and Jazz, America’s classical music, writes Jazz vocalist and composer Ruth Naomi Floyd.

His prophetic insight on Christianity and the arts is profound.

  • Wallpaper Worship : Why Church Music Sounds Better Fewer Are Singing And Wh


    In Wallpaper Worship, Danny Byram makes the comparison between today’s church worship and wallpaper – meant to emphasize the design of its surrounding, but not meant to be engaged with. Through an examination of personal worship experiences, the history of worship, and examples of biblical worship, Byram unpacks this analogy. He shares how to awaken our identities as corporate and individual worshippers, and passionately participate in the God-ordained activity of worship.

  • Sensing The Rhythm


    The inspiring true story of America’s Got Talent Top Five Finalist Mandy Harvey–a young woman who became deaf at age nineteen while pursuing a degree in music–and how she overcame adversity and found the courage to live out her dreams.

    When Mandy Harvey began her freshman year at Colorado State University, she could see her future coming together right before her eyes. A gifted musician with perfect pitch, she planned to get a music degree and pursue a career doing what she loved. But less than two months into her first semester, she noticed she was having trouble hearing her professors. In a matter of months, Mandy was profoundly deaf.

    With her dreams so completely crushed, Mandy dropped out of college and suffered a year of severe depression. But one day, things changed. Mandy’s father asked her to join him in their once favorite pastime–recording music together–and the result was stunningly beautiful. Mandy soon learned to sense the vibrations of the music through her bare feet on a stage floor and to watch visual cues from her live accompaniment. The result was that she now sings on key, on beat, and in time, performing jazz, ballads, and sultry blues around the country–and all the way to the final stage of America’s Got Talent.

    Full of inspiring wisdom and honest advice, Sensing the Rhythm is a deeply moving story about Mandy’s journey through profound loss, how she found hope and meaning in the face of adversity, and how she discovered a new sense of passion and joy.

  • To God Be The Glory


    The songs which are inspired by the Spirit of God are powerful tools that bring messages of hope, healing and happiness directly to His people. God has given us an exhortation in Colossians 3:16 which should be heeded by each of His children. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, with all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. Throughout the centuries, God has entrusted men and women to bring Him adoration and thanksgiving through anointed music. The Bible contains a multitude of messages concerning the songs of praise to God. One fact or characteristic concerning so many of the stories behind famous hymns, as well as contemporary praise and worship songs, is that they are born out of dark and gloomy situations in the lives of the authors. Into the shadows God sends rays of sunlight in the form of biblical lyrics and beautiful melodies which are later shared with Christians around the world. Thus, the Scripture presented with this book: Until the day break, and the shadows flee away. – Song of Solomon 2:17. Some of these songs stories are humorous, some are very somber, some are incredibly intriguing, but all are true-true stories behind the greatest hymns and songs of praise of all time.
