The book challenges its readers to aspire to the highest level of excellence, providing chapter after chapter of practical insights into the Christian songwriting experience. All the way from "Getting Started" to "Building a Demo," The Craft of Christian Songwriting shows beginning writers how to make their next song their "best song ever," all from the unique perspective of the Christian songwriter. Practical and realistic, The Craft of Christian Songwriting is a smart read for anyone with aspirations of becoming a Christian songwriter. Highlights: * Hundreds of examples from hit songs * Concise and practical instruction on all the essential elements of the songwriting process * Writing exercises to help you improve your craft * Learn the ins and outs of collaboration * Examine 10 full lyric reprints, complete with the author's analysis * Discover how to produce a proper demo recording

4.0 out of 5 stars Encouragement Words from a Songwriter and Composer Feb. 27 2012
By Lisa - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Personally, as I read this book I have been encouraged by the humility of the author with all of His expertise. He is also informative in so many ways and he shares ways for anyone to become a songwriter if they begin to invest in the desires of their hearts. I believe that this book can help to inspire and unlock God given potentials in those who desire to write for the glory of God and to help others in their journey with Christ.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great overview! Oct. 14 2013
By CHAD ALLEN BRATTON - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Author speaks from first hand experience about songwriting but with specific regard to Christian songwriting. Would be an excellent read for anyone doing songwriting but even moreso in this regard. Author gives a great cursory glance of topics to include: lyrics, theory, music form, poetic form all with examples where they have been used. Excellent book and resource!!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read For Christian Songwriters Dec 30 2012
By Caleb - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is like a manual for Christian songwriting. It's also a great book for songwriting in general as well. He pulls from many different sources and goes relatively deep enough to entertain and educate both beginners and the more advanced.

The only downside to the book is that it does feel a little on the educational side. Like a textbook. But like I said it's a must have and a must read if you want to write Christian Music.

Great how it describes different types of Christian Songwriters. Those who write about Jesus, those who glorify Jesus, those who are saved. ALL THREE are acceptable to the Lord!
