What music would you recommend?

I got this email a few days ago...


Would you send me the names of some songs you consider “edgy” or at least pushing the envelope from where we are in contemporary worship?

This was from a Minister of Music in ther area that is trying to lead his congregation in a new dirrection in worship. I hope that I was some assistance to him. Here is the list that I sent him. This is by no means a top ten list or anything, I just wrote them down as they came to mind, and put some links in so you can see what theses songs sound like.

  1. I would recommend Daylia Wilson! She has an original song titled Reading Bibles is good for you. We all know that many Christians have never read the Bible and they wait for the Pastor to read the Bible. I think it is an excellent song.

    I also like Grace like Rain, and Mary Mary's Shackles, and Israel and New Breed.
