In God Wants to Hear You Sing! accomplished author Ruthie Jacobsen joins hands with prolific song-writer Rodney Griffin, a member of the southern gospel trio Greater Vision. In its pages, the pair shares how the songs of Greater Vision have touched listeners, reminding them of scriptural truths and drawing them nearer to the heart of the gospel. Inspirational stories of spiritual growth, the power to witness, and the strength to rejoice in suffering are all recounted here.

When I accepted a copy of God Wants to Hear You Sing! for review I had never heard of the musical group Greater Vision. The book I received includes an offer to download the songs that go along with the inspirational stories in the book for free, or to order a CD and pay for the shipping. I have also seen the accompanying CD available for purchase separately on other websites and it now looks as though the CD is actually included with the book.

What I did found is that while the stories were touching, the southern gospel genre isn’t one of my favorites. Though Greater Vision is a highly regarded group within that genre, I found the sound a bit old-fashioned and to be honest, quite slow, though I did enjoy the scriptural messages behind their music. The music also has a very rich, full-bodied traditional sound – it reminds me a bit of music that I heard my grandparents enjoying when I was a child. That being said this collection is best as a gift for those who already enjoy Greater Vision’s work. Having a collection of life-changing stories that were inspired by the music of a group whose work you enjoy would surely be a wonderful gift for those who enjoy this style of music more than I do.
