A Former professional player, now working as a music therapist, writes with insight from her own experience about the complexities and conflicts of playing as a musician in worship.
'This is a book about musicians worshiping God. In it I have tried to tackle a single issue, which is that real worship is when we glorify God alone, exclusively, and whole heartedly. Becoming a musician is an extraordinary privilege and blessing. Used wisely and selflessly, music is a gift that honours god and helps bring us, and other people, into his presence.Used unwisely or selfishly, it easily becomes an opportunity for us to indulge in pride and self-glorification.'
About the Author
Fiona Taylor composes music for radio and film. Her music has been used in BBC radio documentaries, wildlife documentaries, charity promotional videos and therapeutic music CDs.
'Fiona Taylor leads the reader into understanding just how good God truly is. As a longtime believer, I still need to hear this, and say it, and sing it too. Challenging, Gospel centered and vulnerable'
- Brant Hansen, radio presenter and author of 'Unoffendable'
'Whatever your position on music in worship within the church you should find Fiona's very readable book a real companion and guide on where we should be heading; both as churches, and individuals'
- Jonathan Veira, opera singer, E.N.O and Covent Garden
'In a consumer age where church music is increasingly dominated by musicians on big platforms with slick production values, this book sounds a timely and vital remider about why we worship and who we worship'
- Mick Sandeman, keyboard player, Phatfish
