The Power of Music: God's Call to Change the World One Song at a Time
Music can either connect you to God or drive you to the devil.
God created the human race to enjoy music and to make music, and through music the world has been dramatically changed—for good and for evil. In this fascinating book Michael L. Brown takes the reader on a journey through the history of music—from classical to rock and from hip-hop to gospel—showing just how transformative music has been and how much God wants to use it to change the world again.
Brown contends that it is time for all Christians to make a concerted effort to recover the potential of anointed music and song—in our assemblies and in society, in our services and on the streets, in studios and in schools. The counterculture revolution of the 1960s only succeeded with the help of satanically inspired music and mind-altering drugs. Could it be that today’s Jesus revolution can only succeed with the help of Spirit-inspired music and a life-altering encounter with God? What else will produce the necessary change in our perspective?
After reading this book, believers will never again listen to music the same! They will finally understand its power and divine origin, but more importantly they will know how God wants to use it to usher in a global outpouring that will change the world forever.
"There is not a more effective way for communicating a message than when that message is set to music. Dr. Brown brilliantly demonstrates the incredibly effective tool that music is for causing historic change. Every worship leader needs to read this book and fully realize the power in their gift for shaking the world around them."
—Dr. Aaron Crider, Worship Pastor, Gateway Church, Southlake TX
