Hard one to answer: Jeremy Begbie has to two excellent books which immediately come to mind

1. Beholding the Glory: Incarnation Through the Arts (Baker Books, 2000).
2. Voicing Creation's Praise: Toward a Theology of the Arts (T&T Clark LTD, 1991).

But Charlie Peacock's "New Way to Be Human: A Provocative Look at What It Means to Follow Jesus" (Shaw, 2004) probably wins out at this time. David Crowder's quoted on the cover, "This book will make you want to live. Not a tedious breathing in and out, in and out ... but how you've known it should be. Your ideas about relationship with the Divine will expand."

Everyone is choosing Christian musicians. Sorry, my favorite is "U2 by U2". It is not only a good book, it is a whole experience.

The Unquenchable Worshipper: Coming Back to the Heart of Worship‎ by Matt Redman

I learned a lot from that book while becoming a worship leader. Amazing amazing stuff.

Love, Janis

a story of janis joplin, written by her sister, laura.

not your average biography. a little painful to read in places, but that's to be imagined. you find yourself wondering several things; how could her life have been different without her demons? would her music be less passionate? everybody associated with an icon is out for a buck, usually, that can't be discounted. but the facts as laid out in the book, would be intriguing to classic rock fans.
