The Music of Jazz and the Hope of the Gospel

William Edgar is a professor of apologetics (Westminster Theological Seminary, in Philadelphia) and an accomplished jazz pianist, an unusual combination of interests and abilities, which made me very curious to read his new book, A Supreme Love: The Music of Jazz and the Hope of the Gospel. In it, Edgar works to make a case for a strong connection between jazz and the hope offered by Jesus Christ.

Metaphorically, jazz must be the drum-beat to the core of the gospel message…social justice!

I like this piece, which as improvised could be played all day long:

Dave Brubeck - Take Five - YouTube.
