Introducing: Theology That Sticks

“Why don’t we sing less and get on with the good stuff?” “Why are we singing so many new songs?” “Why in the world are we singing this?!”

In his new book Theology That Sticks, pastor, hymn-writer (“His Robes for Mine”), and all-around music junkie Chris Anderson addresses these kinds of questions with humor, warmth, and an open Bible. Theology That Sticks is intentionally positive, providing extensive research, well-reasoned teaching, and small-group discussion questions to help churches and Christians embrace the life-changing practice of biblical singing! With a 12-part grid to help believers measure songs objectively, this book considers what Scripture says about the kinds of songs Christians should sing. 

“A thoughtful compendium of biblical reasons why the teaching of sound doctrine through hymns is so vital to the life and well-being of the church.”

—John MacArthur
