The Word of God as it has been received by the church has embedded in it dozens of songs. Each of these songs has a story to tell us about God and God's people. In brief meditations, twelve faculty at Wycliffe College explore Songs of Scripture in this volume to answer the questions ""Why do Scriptures tell us to sing? What are we to sing? What does singing make of us?"" Each of these meditations will give you a new appreciation for God's gift of songs. By singing the words of Scripture, we tune our hearts to God's song. ""In recent decades, much has been written on the importance of the Psalms in worship and private devotion. In contrast, the Canticles have been relatively neglected. This collection of sermons is a timely reminder of their importance in worship, and expounds their original setting set out their message for today. All those involved in the theology of worship will find this collection extremely valuable."" --Bryan D. Spinks, Professor, Yale Institute of Sacred Music and Yale Divinity School ""Come, Let Us Sing to the Lord is a wonderful collection of sermons that remind us the songs of the church are the songs of scripture. We would be wise to absorb well this complete collection along with its individual parts, and use them to create the foundation of an acoustical theology for the church's song in the twenty-first century."" --Eric Mathis, Director, Center for Worship and the Arts Katherine Kennedy Steiner teaches liturgy and music at Wycliffe College.
