A practical handbook on music and its application in local church ministry. Widely used as a textbook in Bible schools.

"... a superb, thorough, and scholarly job in projecting church music to its rightful place of ministry. The author stresses the fact that music is for the glory of God and not for the art itself or the performer... All the pople in positions of leadership will receive insight into the tremendous scope of this total ministry of music." (Pulpit Magazine 1998-01-10)

"Here is a concrete help for the volunteer choir director... to be as efficient as the trained, hired musician. It would also be a refresher and stimulus to the trained musician. Illustrations aid the director in understanding the instruction for beating time correctly, reading musical scores, and other technical details." --(Baptist Sunday School Board 1998-02-01)
