Sing! has grown from Keith and Kristyn Getty’s passion for congregational singing; it’s been formed by their traveling and playing and listening and discussing and learning and teaching all over the world.

And in writing it, they have five key aims:

• to discover why we sing and the overwhelming joy and holy privilege that comes with singing
• to consider how singing impacts our hearts and minds and all of our lives
• to cultivate a culture of family singing in our daily home life
• to equip our churches for wholeheartedly singing to the Lord and one another as an expression of unity
• to inspire us to see congregational singing as a radical witness to the world

They have also added a few “bonus tracks” at the end with some more practical suggestions for different groups who are more deeply involved with church singing.

God intends for this compelling vision of His people singing—a people joyfully joining together in song with brothers and sisters around the world and around his heavenly throne—to include you. He wants you,he wants us, to sing.

 

I love singing psalms and hymns. I love it!  We attend a church that sings hymns every Sunday and I’m thankful for the rich lyrics and tunes that fit the majesty of the One to whom we are singing.  This book is a great overview of the importance of congregational hymn singing and how great hymns are so important to the church.  Written in a very readable style, this is a wonderful little book for anyone who is interested in hymnody.  Would make a great gift for your pastor, worship leader, choir director … anyone!

Highly recommended!  I’m impressed!

I received an advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own.
