With so many contemporary evangelical voices calling for “redefining,” “rethinking,” “remaking,” and “repackaging” Christian worship, now comes a new voice for reclaiming its sacred and traditional precepts for worshipping God through sung prayer. Praised by some of the world’s leading authorities in the church music field, It’s All About HYMN: Essays on Reclaiming Sacred and Traditional Music for Worship opens up new doors to dialogue, sheds light on factors that influence the Western Christian worship model, and challenges all Christians to reassess how they approach the act of worship.

“…All who are serious about corporate worship will greatly benefit from a careful study of this thought-provoking book.”
Dr. Gary Gilley / Pastor, Southern View Chapel

“…Donn LeVie Jr. has provided biblically based, balanced, and sound arguments for the use in modern worship of sacred music in traditional forms…. This book should be read by
all leaders of Christian worship—and by members of theircongregations as well.”
Dr. David W. Music / Professor of Church Music, Baylor University

“…It’s All About HYMN: Essays on Reclaiming Sacred and Traditional Music for Worship is a thoughtful one, though – as would be expected – it will not evoke unanimity either in all its historical and theological suppositions or in all its conclusions. It will indicate, however, that church music is worthy of serious conversation from various perspectives like this one, and
not a trivial marketing device or personal preference.”
Dr. Paul Westermeyer / Director, Master of Sacred Music, Luther Seminary, St. Paul, MN

“…Donn LeVie Jr. offers articulate, insightful and diverse essays framed from his varied experience as a church musician of many years. It provokes concerns that all leaders in the
contemporary Christian church share.”
Dr. John Marsh / Vice-Chair, National Leadership Program for Musicians (LPM) Board
Dir. of Music Ministries, Christ the King Lutheran Church Norcross, GA

“…an admirable commitment to the importance of congregational song in the formation and expression of Christian faith and practice.”
Dr. Carl P. Daw, Jr. / Executive Director, The Hymn Society of the United States and Canada

“…It is refreshing to find a book in which the author has succeeded in making a non-confrontational appeal to reasoned consideration of the matter of worship and how we ought to choose the music we use for worship if we are to be consistent with the
biblical directives we find in Holy Scripture. . .
Dr. John Hamm / Former Board Member, Church Music National Conference

“…If you want an eye-opening perspective on the hotly contested issue of church music that gently but firmly leads you through the false presumptions, fallacies, and half-truths that often characterize the worship music debate, It’s All About HYMN is THE book that will do it.:
Brian Metzger / Christian Worship Book Review

“…Although this topic can be a controversial subject, the Donn LeVie Jr. does an excellent job of explaining his view of the topic without coming across as arrogant or condescending. This is not a book you can read quickly, but if you do take the time to delve into the subject matter, you will enjoy the insights of this well-educated author.”
