American Idol and Hope for Worship Music

Richard Mouw, President of Fuller Seminary, finds hope for modern Worship music in American Idol:

“I regularly hear folks complaining that “the great Christian hymns” are from a bygone era, and are only available in worn songbooks, unopened hymnals, and outdated albums. Yet, thanks to last week’s American Idol, we are reminded that today’s Christian music also has an extraordinary ability to inspire us and bring us together as a worshiping community.”
