Book Idea—“Worship across the Racial Divide: Religious Music and the Multiracial Congregation”

Posted by Kendall Harmon

Michael O. Emerson's review begins this way:
So you want to have a multiracial, multicultural church. Music, you decide, is an important vehicle to get there.

But what type of music? This is the core question of Gerardo Marti's fascinating new book, Worship Across the Racial Divide: Religious Music and the Multiracial Congregation (Oxford University Press), and one that occupies the minds of many a Christian leader attempting to do multiethnic ministry.

Marti's answer is shocking....It doesn't matter what type(s) of music.
This one looks very interesting--check it out.
