Harold M. Best. Music Through The Eyes of Faith.
HarperCollins, 1993. xii,
225 pages. ISBN 0-06-060862-5
Harold Best, Dean Emeritis of the Wheaton College (IL) Conservatory of Music and President Emeritis of the National Association of Schools of Music, has written an important book concerning the connections between music making and Christian faith. Drawing on his experience as a performer, composer, teacher, philosopher and administrator, Best relates musical practice to a larger theology of creation and creativity, and explores new concepts of musical quality and excellence, musical unity and pluralism. A challenging, thought-provoking and much needed book in the ongoing discussion of the role music plays in societies today.
