What Makes Music "Christian"?

An interesting article in the "BOOK REPORT" section of the latest CHRISTIANITY TODAY (p. 86) with the above title. It's general slant is that in order to allow Christ to speak to life in all it's aspects, Christian Music is sometime too narrowly defined in both text and style. One CCM veteran and author of the book review in this article (At the Cross Roads by Charlie Peacock) writes: "Music is both a quiet song in our hearts and a thundering symphony that takes our breath away . . . It is literally the sonic backdrop to life and culture". This book gives a history of CCM and a critique and his opinions. That so the astute readers of this forum this makes music Christian? -Glen
