I rec'd this book to review today! The review is due today! lol You can imagine that I haven't read the book, right? Well, you are correct; I haven't.
Here’s a summary:
If you’ve ever had the opening bars of a song transport you back in time or remind you of a pivotal spiritual moment, Matthew Paul Turner’s honest—and frequently hilarious—musings will strike a chord. Straightforward and amusing, Hear No Evil is Turner’s “life soundtrack,” a compilation of engaging personal stories about how music—and music’s ability to transform—has played a key role in his spiritual life.
Groove along on his journey as young evangelical Turner attends forbidden contemporary Christian concerts, moves to “ Music City ” Nashville , and dreams of becoming the Michael Jackson of Christian music.
Cosmic and compelling, keen and funny, every page is a new encounter with the people, places, and experiences that have taught the music-editor-turned-author some new things about God, forced him out of his comfort zone, and introduced him to a fresh view of grace along the way.
Sounds interesting. I read through the first chapter which is entitled Overture and I think I will appreciate his writing style. It seems to be an easy conversational type of writing that is engaging to the reader. This book is listed as Christian Living/Memoir so I will be curious to see how it fullfills both of those categories.
I look forward to reading this book and will let you know my further thoughts when I get finished.
In the meantime, I have an extra copy to give away.
All you have to do is leave a comment and then I will draw for the winner next Saturday the 27th.
