Speaking of hearing…it’s been a long time since you’ve heard from me! Let’s just say that 2010 has been off to a surreal start and we’ll leave it at that. On to the first book review of the new year.
Matthew Paul Turner’s Hear No Evil is a no-holds-barred look at how his fundamentalist Baptist upbringing could not extinguish his lifelong love of music. Having never been allowed to listen to anything other than hymns, his ears and passion perked up at the sound of Contemporary Christian music [which had, naturally, been deemed "evil" by his church and family]. Guided by his dream of becoming the Michael Jackson of Christian music, he moved to Nashville to find that not only are his ears and eyes opened but his mind and heart as well. His story is hilarious and painfully familiar to anyone who’s ever been warned of the dangers that lurk in a syncopated beat.
