$15.99 MSRP

Endorsements (6)

Product Description:

Listen to two sermons from Doug O'Donnell on The First and Second Songs of Moses. (New Covenant Church)

Product Description: Are all the songs found in the Old Testament applicable to contemporary Christian worship? God’s Lyrics answers with a resounding “yes!”

Douglas O’Donnell draws out the historical, exegetical, and theological significance of the songs of Moses, Deborah, Hannah, David, and Habakkuk. He then shows, in the light of the person and work of Jesus Christ, how the lyrics of God’s Word apply to contemporary congregational singing.

God’s Lyrics offers both a corrective and a call—a corrective to sing of Christ from the Psalms, the Law and the Prophets, and a call to use the whole counsel of God in worshiping him.

The new hymns and music provided for each biblical text encourage pastors, lyricists, and church musicians to reengage with these ageless songs and their timeless themes.

About the Author

Born and raised in the western suburbs of Chicago, Doug was the second child of five. And while he grew up as a devout Irish-Catholic, where he learned something of sin and the fear of God, it wasn’t until the age of nineteen that he was truly convicted of his sin and wondrously converted to Christ. From the time of his conversion, Doug has studied for the ministry. After graduating from Wheaton College with an Associates of Arts degree in Bible/Theology and a Master of Arts degree in Evangelism, he completed another Masters degree in Church History from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.

Before starting New Covenant Church, Doug has served at three other churches—College Church in Wheaton, Holy Trinity Church in Chicago, and Christ the King Church in Batavia. Doug is ordained in the Presbyterian Church of America (PCA), a member of the North American Patristics Society, the U.S. Board of the Irish Bible Institute, Fellowship for Theological Training, and Evangelical Theological Society. He is also an instructor for the Charles Simeon Trust.
