Abstract:

A paradox: The study of music and its influence confronts the Christian with a complicated paradox. The less he studies and thinks about music, the more he imagines he knows about it. However, the more he studies and thinks about music, the more he realizes how little he actually knows about it. It is hoped that this book will in some small measure help alleviate this paradox for Bible-believing Christians. A problem: Is music amoral? An incorrect answer to this question has led to multiplied perversions of the principles of the Word of God as they apply to music. Music in the Balance goes right to the core of this issue by approaching it in a logical and unemotional manner. Using the teaching of Scripture and the understanding of communication scholars, Frank Garlock and Kurt Woetzel have given those seeking the truth a solution to the problem which has caused so many Christians to stumble. A plan: Believing that the Bible is rational and that good men are reasonable, these authors have combined their many years of research, study, and practical application of the principles of good music into a comprehensive and yet easily understandable text. Trained musicians will appreciate the scholarship of their studies and novices will understand and gain valuable insight into a subject which has been confusing to so many during the last part of the 20th century. If the Lord tarries His coming, believers will profit greatly from examining and applying the principles taught in this book. - Back cover.
