Singing With The Mind

Worshiping And Teaching Through Song

Why do Christians sing in their worship? What are the boundaries of complexity for music in worship? How does one improve this on a personal and congregational level? This study book developes answers to these questions. This is a personal reflection which intends to provide: a scriptural basis for Christian singing, a philosophical groundwork for utilizing skills and time for worship, information about music and hymns, and tips and opinions based on experience. The goal of this work is to convey to the average worshiper the importance of hymn worship, the knowledge required to accomplish effective singing, and sufficient suggestions by which to improve their personal worship. There are also essays which explore some doctrinal and historical fascets of hymn-singing.
