Powell has done a great service in chronicling the many players in the Christian Music genre/business/sub-culture over the past 40 years. This book is a great reference tool & interesting read for those of us who have been around Christian music. My one complaint is that Powell (a theologian by profession) never fails to ridicule the "premillenial, dispensational eschatology" that was prevalent especially in the popular songs of the Jesus Music era.

It's a bit dated now, but this book will open your eyes to lots of good Christian music you'd likely not otherwise encounter.
