With One Voice: Discovering Christ's Song in Our Worship
Kidd, Reggie M.
“Sometimes scholars do an excellent job of keeping the heart out of their writing, even if they're writing about worship. Reggie Kidd blends heart and mind beautifully. Reggie makes me seriously consider history and theology, but he also brings me to the core of worship, my heart before God. This is a great book.”See All
“Some books on worship deal with biblical principles, others with the believer's experience of singing. Still others try to combine these in one way or other. But With One Voice is unique in the way it integrates these. It reaches deep into the history and theology of Scripture to show what it was like then to sing from the heart to God and how that experience can be ours today. In this volume, Kidd shows us 'why our relationship with God can be deepened through song.' This is a deeply moving book and an antidote to worship wars.”See All

From David and Jesus to Bach and the Blues Brothers
Wait. What do the Blues Brothers have in common with King David? The connection lies not simply in the fact that they are all musicians, says author Reggie Kidd, but in the reasons they sing in the first place.
With One Voice examines the rich heritage of the music of God's people to show how song is woven into Scripture's story, carrying believers into deeper relationship with God and with his purposes in redemption.
More than a mere ornament of worship, music brings the worshiper into the company of the Savior. Through this exploration of music and song, join Jesus as he sings the lament of Psalm 22 on the cross and then conducts the "great assembly" upon his resurrection. On the way, discover Christ in the voices of David, Paul, Bach, the Blues Brothers--and possibly yourself.
