Every Life Has a Soundtrack. 

 

If you’ve ever had the opening bars of a song transport you back in time or remind you of a pivotal spiritual moment, Matthew Paul Turner’s honest—and frequently hilarious—musings will strike a chord. Straightforward and amusing, Hear No Evil is Turner’s “life soundtrack,” a compilation of engaging personal stories about how music—and music’s ability to transform—has played a key role in his spiritual life.

 

Groove along on his journey as young evangelical Turner attends forbidden contemporary Christian concerts, moves to “Music City” Nashville, and dreams of becoming the Michael Jackson of Christian music.

 

Cosmic and compelling, keen and funny, every page is a new encounter with the people, places, and experiences that have taught the music-editor-turned-author some new things about God, forced him out of his comfort zone, and introduced him to a fresh view of grace along the way.

Synopsis:

Straight-forward and amusing, "Hear No Evil" is Turner's life soundtrack, a compilation of engaging personal stories about how music--and music's ability to transform--has played a key role in his spiritual life.

Jennifer Short, April 8, 2010 (view all comments by Jennifer Short)
This is a hillarious memoir of a man who grew up in a church where most music except hymns were banned. Yet, he decided to go into the music business. It was wonderfully written and I read it in one sitting because I enjoyed it so much. Because of his church background so many things that most people take for granted were foreign to him. He went to his first movie when he was 19, and in one of his music business classes he admitted he never heard of Jimi Hendrix!
