A careful evaluation of the contemporary worship and music found in many Christian churches. More
For the better part of the past thirty years, the contemporary worship movement has taken the Christian church by storm. It has crossed denominational and congregational lines, replacing hymns, pianos, and organs with praise choruses, guitars, and amplifiers. With a decided, adamant resolution, many of its proponents have set their faces toward seeking musical innovation, relevance, and novelty, all in the name of ushering in a new form of worship.
But does new necessarily mean good?
In this book, Jeremy Aiello evaluates the contemporary worship movement. Drawing from the Scriptures themselves, from respected commentators, and from his own experience of nearly two decades' worth of involvement in contemporary worship, Jeremy looks at the genesis of contemporary worship, its practical implementation, and the results that can and do stem from its usage, in order to answer the question many have asked in reaction to contemporary worship: "Why?" Drawing from both research and experience, "Beneficial?" analyzes the contemporary worship movement, and calls the church of Jesus Christ to do the same.
