Christian Reflection Issues > Singing Our Lives $2.99
When we come before God in worship, why do we sing rather than merely think or talk with one another? Our contributors explore how singing can lift our hearts to adore God, awaken us to confess the disorder in our lives, and inspire us to good work that speaks God's transforming love into the hurting world.

Michael Morgan explores "the sacramental nature" of the Psalter, its "ability to mold and transform the believer." Mark Hill, Mary Louise Bringle, and Kyle Matthews contribute new songs and demystify the art of hymn writing. David Bolin shows how congregations can develop a unique corporate voice through the disciplines of hearing, joining, sounding, remembering, and coaching.

Prophetic music - songs that raise our critical awareness of the needs of the world and call us to responsible action - occurs outside church walls as well as in our worship. Steven Harmon looks at the prophetic lyrics of U2, perhaps the most successful rock band in the world.
