Hear No Evil Blog Tour and Give-away

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.

My thoughts:

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.

This book was provided for review by the WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group.

How we let 'life' get in the way of little pleasures, such as reading HOMEDAZE. I had lost the link and had quit reading, however Steve reminded me and said you were reviewing books. So I am back now in the blogispere.
As far as the book, it sounds interesting. I know Music made a spiritual difference in my life, such as when I heard the hymn, The Love Of God at WCC a few weeks ago. All I could do was wonder at His love for us. How we can not fathom it and how we take it for granted too much.
Grace and Peace,

Once again, you humble me with your response. I sure do love you, Brother!

Music is such a big part of my life. It can speak to a heart when nothing else can.

Thanks for stopping by. :)
