This morning I picked up a new book at our local Christian bookstore, Emmaus Family Books.
Authored by Mark Hall, lead singer and songwriter of CASTING CROWNS, the book tells the story behind many of this award-winning singing groups songs.
As I'm a little old-fashioned and behind-the-times in some people's minds, I must confess that CASTING CROWNS' music and the testimonies of their members has always impressed me and blessed me.
Their songs hit home and have a stirring message. Mark Hall is the youth pastor at a large Baptist Church and has had an effective ministry both at the church and on the road with CASTING CROWNS.
Even though I haven't cracked the book open yet, I'm recommending it based on the integrity of this group and its members.
That's saying a lot. As you know, I'm an avowed Southern Gospel nut and would choose a George Beverly Shea concert over a Hawk Nelson any night.
If you haven't heard CASTING CROWNS, pick up a CD at your local Christian bookstore and enjoy "The Voice of Truth".
