Another Book for the List: “Broken Hallelujahs: Why Popular Music Matters to Those Seeking God”

Can someone please tell me why I am just now hearing about Broken Hallelujahs: Why Popular Music Matters to Those Seeking God by Christian Scharen?

This is a topic I have intended to rant about for some time: the mistaken (in my opinion) belief that Christians should shun secular music because it speaks of things “not of God.” It sounds as if Scharen has already ranted to great effect, arguing that we fail to hear the cry of the world when we ignore its music.

I have now officially added this book to my reading list, and hope to get my hands on it relatively soon. In the meantime, however, I refer you to this excellent review: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/jesuscreed/2012/06/09/saturday-book-review-christian-scharen/
