A Time of Nonsense

One of those linked to in the previous post made reference to the following book:

And Now Let's Move into a Time of Nonsense: Why Worship Songs are Failing the Church, by Nick Page.

The book description starts with: “Have you ever felt frustrated with the words of the worship songs that we sing? Why are they so forgettable? Why are they filled with such weird language? Where have all the writers gone?

Likewise, hopefully it was clear that my Winds of Worship series was not meant to merely cause mindless offence. Read my other posts for that.
