It's no secret that Christians can be ambivalent about music, both popular music and music in the church. In Resonate, author and Eternity Bible College professor Mark Beuving shows Christians how to better appreciate all kinds of music to the glory and pleasure of God. Beuving carefully examines music in the Bible and looks at the various and powerful ways in which music influences our world and our personal lives. He devotes the first section of the book to understanding music, both sacred and secular, exploring biblically why human beings make music and how it affects us. In the second section he highlights some of the many ways we engage with music, from writing songs to discussing artists with our neighbors to worshiping God with fellow believers. Wise and winsome, Beuving writes with an ear for recapturing the wonder of a beautiful part of God's creation. Readers will be inspired to contemplate more deeply and appreciate more fully God's good gift of music.
Mark Beuving (MDiv, Master's Seminary) is professor of interdisciplinary studies at Eternity Bible College in Simi Valley, California, and co-author with Francis Chan of several workbooks and the New York Times bestseller, Multiply. He lives in Simi Valley with his wife and their two daughters.
