"Someone has believed in us enough to call forth the best from within us. And I'll tell you, there is power in that!"
Preaching the gospel sounds quite different in Dr. James R. McCormick's "The Gospel Goes to Broadway."
Realizing that popular Broadway musicals are a powerful way to touch audiences down to their very souls, McCormick takes these catchy songs and uses them as opportunities to tell the gospel story.
Having begun this practice back in 1978, McCormick's "Broadway Sundays" became an instant hit with his own congregations.
Now readers can enjoy their own musical Bible lessons in "The Gospel Goes to Broadway." Over the span of twenty-six chapters, twenty-six Broadway hits are analyzed. The lyrics and themes of each are then directly connected to stories in the gospel.
McCormick firmly believes that once people gain the ability to see and hear the word of God within these Broadway songs, they may then learn to recognize God's hand at work in life's "other" everyday experiences as well. Those seeking religious inspiration, as well as fans of musical theater, will delight in "The Gospel Goes to Broadway"'s fun yet intellectually stimulating approach to God's word.
