Darlene Zschech has asked Amanda Fergusson for a long time to write this book on songwriting. Amanda's revolutionary teaching unveils understanding to those entrusted with the amazing responsibility of songwriting. The God-song, a song born through revelation and often through much 'life', has been spoken about so often, and Amanda explains the mystery so brilliantly.
Amanda Fergusson and her husband Robert are both inspiring and insightful teachers at Hillsong Church. In this book, Amanda speaks of the importance and responsibility given to those with the gift of songwriting. It is full of practical and theological revelation that will ensure that our worship is genuine, relatable and truly brings heaven to earth.
The book covers such topics as:
... a theology of worship,
... the power of song sung to God,
... the qualities of a God-centred songwriter,
... the importance of structure,
... writing the music: melodies, harmonies and rhythm,
... living in the Psalms and much more!
Songs of Heaven is truly a long-awaited resource for all songwriters who desire to bring breathtaking offerings of worship through song.
