Facing the Music Book Review:

Facing the Music, Larry Brown’s first book, was originally published in 1988 to wide critical acclaim. As the St. Petersburg Times review pointed out, the central theme of these ten stories “is the ageless collision of man with woman, woman with man--with the frequent introduction of that other familiar couple, drinking and violence. Most often ugly, love is nevertheless graceful, however desperate the situation.” There’s some glare from the brutally bright light Larry Brown shines on his subjects. This is the work of a writer unafraid to gaze directly at characters challenged by crisis and pathology. But for readers who are willing to look, unblinkingly, along with the writer, there are unusual rewards.

Facing the Music Book Review:

Jennifer Knapp’s meteoric rise in the Christian music industry ended abruptly when she walked away and came out publicly as a lesbian. This is her story—of coming to Christ, of building a career, of admitting who she is, and of how her faith remained strong through it all. At the top of her career in the Christian music industry, Jennifer Knapp quit. A few years later, she publicly revealed she is gay. A media frenzy ensued, and many of her former fans were angry with what they saw as turning her back on God. But through it all, she held on to the truth that had guided her from the beginning. In this memoir, she finally tells her story: of her troubled childhood, the love of music that pulled her through, her dramatic conversion to Christianity, her rise to stardom, her abrupt departure from Christian Contemporary Music, her years of trying to come to terms with her sexual orientation, and her return to music and Nashville in 2010, when she came out publicly for the first time. She also talks about the importance of her faith, and despite the many who claim she can no longer call herself a believer, she maintains that she is both gay and a Christian. Now an advocate for LGBT issues in the church, Jennifer has witnessed heartbreaking struggles as churches wrestle with issues of homosexuality and faith. This engrossing, inspiring memoir will help people understand her story and to believe in their own stories, whatever they may be.

Facing the Music Book Review:

'There wouldn't be any trouble if only you had a wife,' Lady Boynton had said. To mild-mannered Gervaise this was a new idea and the longer he thought about it, the more delightful it seemed... But Flavia Cameron was not what Lady Boynton had in mind. Impossibly young, with a musical talent that could have been heard in concert halls around the world, the headmaster's new wife was beautiful and sparkling and she swept the Upper Fourth off their feet. Until Ben Forbes arrived, with a father who sees Flavia not as a prodigy, a daughter or a wife, but, for the first time, as herself. It is a discovery that will throw her life, and the lives of those around her, into turmoil.

Facing the Music Book Review:

In Facing the Music, poet and critic Eamon Grennan gives comprehensive and imaginative life to the modern Irish poetic tradition. With Yeats as his starting point, these essays constitute a suite of intimate engagements with the matter and manner of the poetic intelligence as it declares itself in poets as diverse as Kavanagh, Muldoon, Kinsella, and McGuckian, and as it is found in the work of James Joyce and John McGahern. What most distinguishes this luminous collection is its author's tolerant breadth of response, his ability to sympathize equally with poets whose creative aims and means are very different from one another, but who between them compose much of the map of modern and contemporary Irish poetry. Such sympathetic readings give the reader a powerful sense of how Irish poetry in this century has kept pace with the often intractable public and private life of the island, north and south. Facing the Music reveals the workings of the intuitive spirit of poetry in the moral life of twentieth-century Ireland. Eamon Greenan is the Dexter M. Ferry Jr. Professor of English at Vassar College.

Facing the Music Book Review:

Facing the Music is a book about worship leading. But it is also a book about much more than just the act of leading or the theory of leadership. It dives deep into the calling, spirit and motivation of the worship leader. It invites us to move beyond "singing the song" and towards "becoming the song." It speaks of worship not as something we do, but rather something we are. It celebrates a lifestyle of worship and leads us to a level of transparency and intimacy before Jesus Christ. Facing the Music may challenge your preconceptions about worship leading-it may make you uncomfortable about some things. But in the end, the call, as A.W. Tozer once said, to "Take worship out of the hands of man and place it in the hands of God where it belongs," rings loud and clear throughout its passages. Dr. Robert Dusek is the Worship and Arts Pastor at Centerpoint Community Church in Arvada, Colorado. Prior to being called to the ministry, Dr. Dusek toured as a concert pianist and had several of his compositions and performances published and recorded. His passion now is for a rebirth of authenticity and transparency in the worship of God, and to that end he has worked with and coached several Denver area praise teams and has been a proponent of multi-church praise and worship gatherings. Robert lives at home with his wife whom he loves and his dog whom he tolerates.

Follow Ivy and Blake as they fall back in love and figure out what does matter in the end…
