Greg Gilbert is a regular contributor to the 9Marks blog. He is also a former intern at Capitol Hill Baptist Church in D.C. (I think), and currently an elder at the Third Avenue Baptist Church in Louisville, KY (I’m positive). I have especially enjoyed his books reviews for 9Marks (particularly this one). His recent 9Marks blog-post concerning music and its place in worship is absolutely brilliant. Mr. Gilbert shares the same concerns and observations about music that I have. For instance, Mr. Gilbert writes:
I’ve been amazed since becoming an elder in a local church just how dependent many Christians are on a certain style of music. (emphasis mine)
The amazement is mutual. The post is excellent and I commend it to you.
