"Professor Johansson knows the difference between entertainment and ministry. He issues a ringing call for ministers of music to embrace integrity and to avoid "Christian infantilism." Themes like creation, the image of God, incarnation, crucifixion, and resurrection grace the pages--fulfilling the subtitle's promise to provide a "biblical counterpoint."
--Russell P. Spittler, Fuller Theological Seminary
"[Readers of this book] will enlarge their understanding of the glorious calling of the church musician to creative artistry that truly ministers. Expressing sound theology both as prophet and as pastor, Johansson rejects music that serves the art (an aesthetic approach) or that serves people (a pragmatic approach) and instead calls for music that serves God (the biblical approach). Such music becomes the full gospel in action!
--Donald P. Hustad, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
