I've enjoyed recently reading Ken Myers' excellent book All God's Children and Blue-Suede Shoes. I'm now in the process of reading Dick Staub's The Culturally Savvy Christian. Both are highly recommended. I will be commenting on them shortly. But, both speak much about the impact of pop culture on the church. One area impacted is the church's music. Recently, in The American Spectator, Lawrence Henry offered these words regarding contemporary praise music. They are worth reading. Although I think he's a bit too hard on Dennis Jernigan, and I think he's greatly overgeneralizing (see Getty, Kauflin, and others), he does make some great points. To what extent have we simply "Christianized" shallow, displeasing American pop music? It's worth considering.
