Michael's New Book

Michael's most recent book, Singing the Songs of Jesus, is finally for sale here in America! (It was published in the UK.) You can find it here on Amazon.
Here is a blurb about the book from the publisher:

The Psalms were composed for singing. In Old and New Testament times, and throughout Church history, congregations sung Psalms. Despite renewed interest in Psalmody, few books explain how the Psalms function as hymns for Christ-centred worship.Singing the Songs of Jesus fills that gap without shying away from difficulties, like the doubts and curses of the Psalms. This study shows why the Psalms are suited for Christian praise and how to use them for powerful and relevant worship. (Photo from Amazon)

Michael also participated in the writing of Sing a New Song, a compilation of essays on psalm singing. It can be found for sale here.
Publisher's Description: The book of Psalms occupies a unique place in Scripture, being both the Word from God and words to God from His people. Unfortunately, psalm singing no longer plays an integral part of worship in most evangelical churches. In this book, thirteen well-respected scholars urge the church to rediscover the treasure of the Psalms as they examine the history of psalm singing in the church, present biblical reasons for the liturgical practice, and articulate the practical value it provides us today.
