EPISODE 60: Music - Common Grace and Common Ground

Music is a great gift, with the power to take us to another world. Though music can move us so much, it makes a poor god! In this article, Dr. Newman expounds on both the common grace and the common ground that can be found through the gift of music. Read this article online.

"I have found my musical soul again ... this time in the preludes of Chopin... Aren’t they wonderful? ... they are so passionate, so hopeless, I could almost cry over them; they are unbearable. I will find out the numbers of the ones I mean and we will have a feast next holidays."
- C.S. Lewis (in a letter to his friend Arthur Greeves)
