Item Description...
There has been much passionate debate and emotion aroused by the introduction of contemporary music styles into the modern church. While these debates have rarely produced a victor, the detrimental effects of them have resonated throughout many Protestant churches worldwide. Rather than simply fuelling this debate further, Open Up The Doors represents an attempt to provide objective criteria and analytical frameworks by which the quality and function of contemporary congregational music can be assessed. The latest music from Hillsong, Soul Survivor, Parachute, Vineyard, Christian City and others is examined in order to reveal both the beneficial and dangerous trends occurring in modern church music. Open Up The Doors considers how well modern music is serving the modern church, and also how effectively it is operating as a musical form in the secular culture that surrounds it.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Thoughtful, Thorough, Theomusical   Jun 11, 2008
Too often, books on 'christian worship music' are filled with un-substantiated (often romantic) rhetoric which fails to give any answers in the nexus of traditional and contemporary music tradition . It is so refreshing to see that Evans has approached the elephant in the corner of the room from an objective musicological and theological perspective. Clearly grounded in significant amounts of research, Evans takes a critical look at congregational songs used in the church from a neutral perspective. A MUST have for pastors and musicians.
Definitive book for worship leaders and those who think on worship   Jun 1, 2008
Open Up The Doors is a detailed and well researched documentation of what is happening to the contemporary church worship scene. So much of the stuff you will read about this subject is pushing a particular view - ie Hymns=Good: Hillsong=Bad or vice versa. Evans has adopted a much more considered position and what he has to say needs to be read by every side in the worship wars. It is well written, intelligent, considered and offers hope for a kind of cease fire in the traditional versus contemporary music debate. For those of you who are students of music, students of worship, or students of the arts in the church this book is a must have item on your bookshelf.
