Quote of the Day – Michael W. Smith

“I believe that good music is judged not by what it sounds like, but what it does to us.”

boldThe above quote is found on page 160 of his book, It’s Time to Be Bold. Nashville: Word Publishing, 1997. 0849933366. It can be found in the BAC library under 248.4 SMI.

Smith takes readers on a tour behind the scenes, basing his chapters on the reasons why he wrote certain songs. The book’s chapters contain brotherly advice on relationships with family and friends, reading the Bible and praying, our involvement in the church and world, spiritual warfare, and dealing with pain and suffering. He writes with a familiar tone and invites readers to share his world.

BTW, if you ever meet him in real life, be sure to call him MacGyver as he really likes that and might even write about you in a future book!

“Music is God’s way of keeping the poet alive inside all of us.”
