Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
This is an outstanding book that provides a comprehensive survey of some of the all time greats. It also gives an overview of the development from black gospel music to rock and roll to the present day.
There are little details about what happened to Sam Cook and why Al Green didn't have the same fate. From the spiritual journeys of The Beatles or The Rolling Stones to the complex workings of men like Bob Dylan and Van Morrison.

HASH(0x9606e8e8) out of 5 stars Insightful as to the rock movement's spiritual concerns. 5 Mar. 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is the first book i've read in quite some time written by a Christian author on the subject of rock music that's actually fair to the people it's talking about.
Steve Turner understands the rock culture from the 50s thru '95, and he understands not just WHAT rock stars have done to wet their spiritual appetites over the past 40 years, but WHY. He goes piece by piece thru many of the different genres, starting with Elvis and ending with pagan techno, and shows us the thought process that went into the construction of many of the artists' philosophies on who they are, why they exist, whether or not God exists and if He does, whether or not He cares. Although most of the stars thru the years have never, as U2 put it, "found what they're looking for," and have lived excessive lives in the absebnce of any true from of religious satisfaction, the most interesting thing to read about is all they went thru to find their own identities and most still left with unanswered questions in the end.
Recommended for all interested in the rock culture and it's religious roots, but most of all recommended for those in the Church who rail against rock music, having limited research from reading too many Christian authors with slanted views.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a Christ-following rocker. Hungry for Heaven is enlightenment for all of us rockers who also are Christian. We're not all 'against' rock and culture; indeed, this book confirms that soulful, intelligent, and even fun rock oftens leads us to the Rock of our faith.

Super insightful. Our culture has been imbibed with rock n roll for so long. The author really helps us take a thoughtful step back
