The people of God have always been a singing people whose experiences shaped their songs. This has been particularly true of the black church whose musical heritage can be traced from African slavery to the Afro-American culture. There is an increasing trend in the church to separate music from theological and historical foundations.

A dead king but a living Lord! When Apollo 11 landed on the moon July 20, 1969, I was in the early springtime of pastoral ministry, only in my second month as a new pastor; for me, a new beginning

By: J.

Wendell Mapson articulated this idea in his book, The Ministry of Music in the Black Church, when he noted that purpose of worship is forfeited when singing music that has no relationship to everyday life, and the worshipper becomes disconnected from the way music and worship have historically served blacks (41). In this same vain, James Cone asserted that Black music is theological because it reveals how God moves people towards unity and self-determination.

In this study Dr. Mapson questions whether theology is shaping music in the traditional sense or whether music now is shaping theology. There is an increasing trend in the church to separate music from theological and historical foundations. Mapson’s objective is to help today’s pastor take leadership in improving the worship experience through the use of music that meets the biblical norm and serves theology as a legitimate response to God. In addition to evaluating the quality and relevancy of music to the worship service, the guidelines suggest ways for improving the relationship between pastor, music director, choir, and congregation. Specific helps are also provided for:- Organizing a music committee - Setting qualifications for choir director and musicians - Developing a music education program for the choir and for young untrained musicians

This book came very handy in it's view of church music and as a guide for church musicians, especially in the black church. It addresses the role of the church, pastor, and musician and goal in music ministry. Also ways to avoid conflict in music ministry. It's great, I read it all in one day, looking forward to see the author write a part II to this book.
