A review by discerningMusic:
Then Sings My Soul (special edition) by Robert J. Morgan
If you were ever curious to know the inspiration or history behind some of your favorite hyms, the newest edition of Robert J. Morgan’s Then Sings My Soul series would make an excellent addition to your library. Reflective meditations tell the dramatic and poignant stories behind the writing of the songs and include words and music for each entry.
This beautiful French flap ivory paper jagged edged paperback book contains 150 Christmas, Easter, and all-time favorite hymns (words and music) and their stories. The Contents page is divided into 5 categories: Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, Patriotic, and Other Favorites. The Index in the back of the book is as equally conveniently divided into 3 indices: Alphabetical by Title, Alphabetical by Author/Songwriter, and First Line of Hymn.
Then Sings My Soul is an excellent resource for Sunday School/Music teachers, song leaders or music ministers or for personal devotions. I have been blessed, challenged, surprised and moved by the stories behind these hymns. While I have not read every story yet (I try to read one per day) my life and Faith are richer because of this book. Heartily recommended, you may purchase this book from publisher Thomas Nelson on Amazon or other various online retailers.

Music, Might & Manipulation
By popular request, this message has been converted to DVD.
Using extensive video footage, Brother Marcus Becker, from Germany, shows us that Satan has a defined agenda to destroy Christianity, and that rock music is not just an expression of rebellion, but a vehicle through which Satan’s message is preached.
This eye opening DVD reminds us that we are in a spiritual war, and it encourages us to be more diligent and careful of what we allow in our homes.

A former Worship leader tells his story why he left the Contemporary Christian Music Movement.
came before me. They never ceased to warn us about the dangers of rock music
to a Christian; but we did not take heed. They had the courage to confront others
in the church who defended every controversial and sensual music style; but in
return we heaped scorn upon them. When they dared to oppose the contemporary
music invasion into the church service itself, we called them legalists and worse.
Many have sacrificed popularity and seen their ministry opportunities limited,
because their consciences dictated they must take a stand.
