Tracing our songlines -- A sound spirituality -- My life flows on in endless song -- Do you hear what I hear? -- Becoming who we are through music -- Music divides us -- Singing our sorrow -- Sing justice, sing freedom -- Saturday night and Sunday morning -- Music and the search for God.
Music is a central practice in most expressions of spirituality and faith--whether it's the Christian music of seeker services, traditional hymnody, liturgical chant and singing, or popular music ballads about the meaning of life. In this exploration of music across all these settings and styles, the authors interweave their own stories as well as those of others to reveal the importance of music as spiritual practice and a force for good in our lives, looking at such topics as justice, grief, delight, and hope. Don Saliers is a professor of theology, and daughter Emily is a member of the Indigo Girls, an award-winning folk-rock duo known for their social activism.--From publisher description.
