  • Temporarily out of stock

Alone among the reformers, Martin Luther identified music as a gift of God, not a human invention. In so doing he recognized and made effective use of the power of music to teach and persuade both mind and heart. He also created a strong bond between the preacher and the church musician in their shared responsibilities. In this small "handbook" on the Lutheran fundamentals of worship and church music, readers can celebrate, affirm and even reclaim these still dynamic understandings from their rightful heritage as Lutherans.
