  • Jesus Music : A Visual Story Of Redemption As Told By Those Who Lived It


    A written and visual complement to the documentary film of the same name, The Jesus Music brings the history of a movement to life. Featuring Contemporary Christian Music artists across five decades, readers will experience the story that has united and changed the lives of people around the world.

    The Jesus Music: A Visual Story of Redemption as Told by Those Who Lived It shares that story: people creating something they wanted, something that never existed before. Written by music and film historian Marshall Terrill, the book accompanies a documentary film by award-winning directors Jon and Andy Erwin; this written and visual narrative of the genre features historic concerts and candid behind-the-scenes photographs throughout.

    The Jesus Music explores the history, evolution, and redemptive thread of Contemporary Christian music over the last fifty years as it spans the convergence of rock and roll, country, and gospel music. As CCM grows, readers will see California artists as much a part of hippie culture as Christian culture, religious-focused bands and songs denounced by some church leaders of the day, and best-selling artists who rose, and sometimes fell from fame, as they journey through the music and experience the often delicate balances between faith, fame, mission, and humanity as they relate to Christian music.

    The notable voices of Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith, Kirk Franklin, and TobyMac, as well as the stories of dozens of additional Christian artists, will hit all the right notes and explore:

    *The roots of the movement, spanning from Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash to Switchfoot, Chris Tomlin, Hillsong United, and beyond.

    *The stories of pioneers in the genre, including Larry Norman, Lovesong, and Stryper

    *Insights into how history, culture, and technology shaped the Contemporary Christian music we hear on the radio today.

    *Examples of God’s steadfast love as He uses artists despite their human mistakes and shortcomings.

    *How the message of the music transforms lives and has impact beyond artistic expression.

    The Jesus Music is perfect for anyone looking to explore the history of the genre and discover how God can use us despite our flaws to impact the world.

  • 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.
