This is a very readable book, very inspiring, and very worthwhile reading for all music directors, contemporary worship leaders, clergy or organists. One of John's great strengths is that he doesnt get bogged down in the "traditional versus contemporary" debates - I'm a guitar playing contemporary worship leader, but I've lent this to the organist/choir director in my church, and he's now ordered his own copy. Instead he gives us a vision of congregational song as a great privilege of the people of God - he is critical of how both robed choirs and contemporary bands have been guilty of creating a "performance culture", where the people at the front sing and everyone else listens, when this part of worship is meant to be "the people's offering". In this sense, he presents a strong "folk" ethic in his approach to worship, and his writing seems like it has something to say to churches no matter where they sit on the denominational spectrum (so long as they sing songs in church).

This delightful new handbook explores the reasons we, as humans, are compelled to express ourselves in song. The author has compiled a list of charming introspections about what motivates us to sing or prevents us from singing. Whether we sing to tell stories or don't sing because someone once told us we can't, this engaging and enlightening book examines why everyone can sing and why everyone should. It is a must-read for choir directors, cantors, and song leaders.
Bell's essays are thought-provoking and encouraging for those involved with the church's music. "The Singing Thing" is, at very least, and enjoyable read!
