Oxymoron? Thankfully, no. I am so grateful for a crop of songwriters who are writing songs of content meant to be sung corporately in the church. I lament greatly the lack of substance in so much of modern Christian song writing. I think “worship wars” would have been far less common and pronounced had the praise and worship movement been more theologically driven.
Standing in the gap we find Keith and Kristyn Getty. If you have not heard their songs, you are missing out.
You have probably heard their song “In Christ Alone,” but have you heard this song, “By Faith”? I was moved to tears as I listened to it this evening, and I want to share it with you.
