Christian Music Guide – Part I

Some discussion recently with a friend of ours about finding good Christian music sparked my interest in putting together a Christian music guide. I kind of took my inspiration from iTunes. The iTunes Store features what it calls Essentials. Essentials exist for everything from Christian rock to love songs to friendship songs. They then split the Essentials collection into 3 parts. The first part gives songs that make good introductions into whatever category the Essential is about. The next delves deeper and the final part goes even further. I plan to do the same with my 3 part Christian guide.

Finding full versions of most of these songs on the internet would be difficult. However almost any song you can think of can be found as a 30 second clip on iTunes. So I have linked each title to the iTunes store. If you have iTunes installed, clicking the title will take you to the iTunes Store page for that title and you can listen to it and/or buy it. But in case you do not have iTunes installed I have linked the album names to Amazon so that you can hear clips and/or buy the album there. Unfortunately a couple of the albums do not have clips available on Amazon but you can still purchase the album.
I realize that everyone has different tastes so I have tried to choose music that might appeal to a wide variety of tastes. However there is no way I could possibly cover every genre out there. Furthermore some of my own preferences are bound to find there way into this so I can not claim that this guide will be completely unbiased. But hopefully the music featured here will be a springboard and help some of you get started in finding some of the great music that’s out there by Christian artists. For each artist I have listed three songs that I believe represent their style. And I recognize that for each artist there may be albums of theirs that I just have not been exposed to, so I know that there may be some songs or albums that I overlook or just am not able to include for whatever reason, so feel free to leave comments recommending some music that you like.

    what, no “what love really is”, “decision time”, or “brother friend”

    “Finding full versions of most of these songs on the internet would be difficult.” Unless, of course, you decide to try the Russian black market, and you might just find them for $.15 a piece.
