About-

This little book tackles the big questions about worship music. In considering the theology of biblical and Reformed worship and the purpose of music in worship, Pastor Janssen develops objective guidelines which lead to an evaluation tool for selecting the best music for worship. This book helpfully moves beyond personal preference, leading to greater light than heat in the continuing discussion of worship practice. Written from a pastoral perspective, this book is theological, readable, and practical.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"In Sing to the Lord a New (Covenant) Song, Brian Janssen provides an enduringly useful resource for evaluating congregational music. After concisely laying down some foundational points regarding music and worship, he describes an objective way to evaluate the lyrical content and musical composition for congregational worship. This is a tool that should be used by every pastor and minister of music for effective assessment of the songs, whether ancient or modern, that are used in their worship services. Praise be to God for Janssen's work!"
--Ben Hottel, Associate Pastor
New Bethel Baptist Church, Evansville, Indiana

"Janssen's 'Worship Music Evaluation Form' is reason enough to get hold of this book."
--Robert W. McDowell, M.D., Newport, Vermont

"The myth of musical neutrality has led many churches into corporate worship practices as vacuous as they are subjective. Janssen reminds us that Lord's Day worship is a covenant renewal ceremony in which we sing about God and to God, forming Christian character and fostering Christian community. This approach leads to a refreshingly objective set of criteria for evaluating our worship music, helping us to become more deliberate about what we sing together--and why we sing it."
--Pastor Paul Alexander
Fox Valley Bible Church, St. Charles, Illinois
