Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0971119708, Paperback)What is the music of heaven really like? Read a Bible-based answer from John Thurber, a professional musician who has made a lifelong study of the topic. Churches everywhere are in a crisis mode over what to sing and play for the assembly of the saints in worship. Many have unanswered questions such as: · Is God concerned about the music being played by Christians today? · Is the music being played in my church of heavenly, or earthly origin? · How should the church react to all the new "flavors" of music? · Was Lucifer’s "pride problem"-the one that started his rebellion in heaven-somehow tied to his music? And is it still hounding the saints today? · What about the music that so many of our youth love so dearly. Are they being led or misled? · Are we swept up in worshipping stars rather than looking to and praising the Star of heaven? John Thurber finds the answers to these questions, and more, in this important new book on the music of heaven. Pastor Thurber’s first sermon, which he preached while a student in college, was on this wonderful topic. Since that day, he has spent many happy hours searching the inspired pages of the Scriptures and Spirit of Prophecy to learn even more of God’s music. You’ll find the results of his study in this book, including: · The role music has played in the great controversy between Christ and Satan · Detailed descriptions of what heaven’s music is-and isn’t-like, and · 27 Practical Principles for choosing heavenly music No book Pastor Thurber wrote would be complete without stories, so he’s put a few of those in, too. Read the touching story of the fat lady and the circus, and how God worked in her life through music, in "Baby Francis and the Bullet Holes." Your heart will be warmed as you read how God send a "shoe shine" boy to Pastor Thurber in an airport one day. And your thinking will be stirred by the lesson behind "When the Crowd Didn’t Clap." Before his retirement, Pastor Thurber taught music in several different academies and colleges. The highlight of Pastor Thurber’s music ministry was singing with the King’s Heralds Quartet at the Voice of Prophecy, and traveling with H.M.S. Richards Sr. and his fellow musicians there. Pastor Thurber brings all of his experience, and the wisdom gained through his career as a professional musician, into this inspiring book.
