With One Voice- Reggie Kidd on Worship

Many thanks to Josh Otte for turning me on to Reggie Kidd's With One Voice. Here's a quote on Kidd's redemptive-historical, Jesus-centered book on worship:

"When Paul tells his churches to “let the word of Christ dwell
. . . richly” among them by means of “psalms, hymns and spiritual
songs” (Col. 3:16 niv), he’s inviting them to do more than use
music as a “warm-up” to the sermon. The song is not ornamentation;
it is participation in the very redemption of all creation. It
plays its own role in God’s showcasing his saving power before
humans and angels (Eph. 3:10)."
