More and more, mainstream evangelicalism is waking up to the need for theology, biblical literacy, historicity, and thoughtfulness in modern worship. I see this on the personal level as I continue to meet a new, young breed of mainstream worship leader, who chooses to not be either-or about passion and substance. And I see this on the institutional level in instances like this at a major evangelical college, Biola University (which happens to be my alma mater):
Biola Magazine asked a group of students, alumni and professors to select a handful of modern worship songs that they’ve found to be both lyrically and musically stirring. Here are 31 of their recommendations — including songs written by each of the worship leaders interviewed for this issue’s cover story, “Weightier Worship.”
Among other great artists (e.g. Bifrost Arts, The Welcome Wagon, Stuart Townend, Keith & Kristyn Getty), two of our songs from The Glad Sound are featured. Check it out.
