The world of popular secular music, embraced by so many youth, is too often marked by purposeless rhetoric. On the other hand, some Contemporary Christian Music can seem overly-optimistic and disconnected from the lives of younger Christians who have grown up in a culture that breeds cynicism. But there is a middle ground, and Mark Joseph has found it. In Faith, God, and Rock & Roll, this entertainment expert profiles the surprisingly long list of bands and artists who signed with secular labels but still make music that speaks of faith in God. Among the topflight acts he writes about are Jars of Clay, Lenny Kravitz, U2, Creed, Lauryn Hill, Sixpence None the Richer, Destiny's Child, Lifehouse, and P.O.D.
