New Book by our own: Douglas O'Donnell

God's Lyrics: Rediscovering Worship through Old Testament Songs
Douglas Sean O'Donnell

Are all the songs found in the Old Testament applicable to contemporary Christian worship? God's Lyrics answers with a resounding "yes!"

Douglas O'Donnell draws out the historical, exegetical, and theological significance of the songs of Moses, Deborah, Hannah, David, and Habakkuk. He then shows, in the light of the person and work of Jesus Christ, how the lyrics of God's Word apply to contemporary congregational singing.

The new hymns and music provided for each biblical text encourage pastors, lyricists, and church musicians to reengage with these ageless songs and their timeless themes.

"Doug O'Donnell has carefully and caringly unpacked the treasury of Scripture's songs and provided a rich resource."
Neil Nielson, President, Covenant College, Lookout Mountain, Georgia

"This book is unique: it combines the careful exposition of God's Word with creative work in hymnody."
Philip Ryken, President Elect, Wheaton College

"For the Christian who has become a bit numb to the grand realities of God's saving acts recorded in the Bible, Doug O'Donnell's prescription is a healthy dose of the Songs of Scripture."
Greg Wheatley, Host of Moody Radio's Prime Time America and Sound of Majesty

"O'Donnell argues-passionately, humorously, challengingly—that we must compare our singing to the Scripture and take our cues from the Songs of Scripture."
Chuck King, Pastor for Worship and Music, College Church in Wheaton

Douglas S. O'Donnell is the Senior Pastor of New Covenant Church in Naperville, Illinois.
