""And Christian publications that review CCM aren't likely to evaluate the songs based on their artistic merit. Yeah, that shouldn't be the sole criterion for quality when it comes to Christian music, but it kind of sucks that the…"

"This thread has been part of inspiration to me to get some hymns on the iPod.  The other was trying to play something for my 4-y-o to hear, and noting how Amy Grant, much as I like her, didn't have much to say about Jesus.  (She sings…"

Jason replied to Lon R.'s discussion Contemporary Christian Music in the group Christian Men
"I have to weigh in on this discussion. As a musician i want to hear a balance of good lyrics and good music. I resonate with what nathaneal said too. If songs are not interesting musically they lose their appeal. There's song(i won't say…"

"Hey Matt, you're absolutely right, God works miracles through imperfect vehicles (which we all are). However, that doesn't negate our responsibility to do the best we possibly can in our respective fields. I admit I am not in the music…"

"Hi Allen, thanks for replying! My point wasn't that Christianity should be merely an intellectual faith, but that when we worship God, we're expected to do so with our intellects as well, not just our emotions. Or, as C.S. Lewis put it…"

Pale Horse replied to Lon R.'s discussion Contemporary Christian Music in the group Christian Men
"I agree wholeheartedly. Very few CCM songs and groups appeal to me, and when they do, it's because of what Nathanael mentioned. That up-and-coming band For King and Country is a big offender. Saying "Fix my eye-eye, eye-eye-eyes on…"

"Very insightful. When I think of my favorite CCM artists, I too notice that they push the boundaries of CCM and Praise & Worship (think Chris Tomlin, David Crowder)."

Nathanael replied to Lon R.'s discussion Contemporary Christian Music in the group Christian Men
"I think you've got something right here.  I don't think it's coincidence that the best CCM tends to either be very hymn-like or to push the boundaries beyond what CCM is comfortable with.  I think the former is fairly…"

Victor replied to Lon R.'s discussion Contemporary Christian Music in the group Christian Men
"Preach it brother Lon! Most CCM sucks, although I will say that I like Jars of Clay and Derek Webb. There is a band from Australia, Sons of Koreh, that does really great stuff with the Psalms too, apart from this most CCM is forgettable! Apart from…"

Tim Dienes replied to Lon R.'s discussion Contemporary Christian Music in the group Christian Men
"It's also a matter of quantity and quality. In any kind of music, there are rare hits. Several "pretty-good" songs and lots of "efforts". The amount of airtime that needs to be filled makes room for needing the mediocre and…"
