- ?Crescendos and Diminuendos is a wonderful reminder of the impact music can have in our Christian walk. - ? ?'Michael W. Smith, singer and songwriter If you are a musician or music lover and are looking for a way to connect your love of music to your spiritual life, this devotional is especially for you. Jack Coleman offers fifty-two meditations centered on musical terms, such as allegro, forte, and D.S. al Fine. He deftly connects each musical concept with incisive spiritual insights for anyone who sings, plays an instrument, or just enjoys listening to music. - ?I loved reading Crescendos and Diminuendos. I would encourage anyone who has chosen music as a career to read this book. Jack Coleman has provided fresh spiritual and practical insights to musical terms that I have used for years to help provide the proper feel or interpretation of a song. I was amazed at how musical terms like adagio, lento, and diminuendo apply directly to our relationship with God. You will absolutely enjoy this wonderful book! It is a must for anyone involved in music ministry. - - - Don Moen, songwriter; worship leader; president, Integrity Media - ?I am so pleased this marvelous little book is being introduced to a wider readership. Jack Coleman, whom I have always respected as a musician, combines musical terms with devotional insight and application in a way that is spiritually refreshing. - - - Kurt Kaiser, pianist and composer Jack Coleman (1920 - ?1985) taught music on all levels, from elementary school to college, and served as music supervisor for Santa Ana Unified School District as well as coordinator of music for Orange County Superintendent of Schools in Southern California.
