Summary
Product Description: In When the Church Becomes Your Party, author Deborah Smith Pollard assesses contemporary gospel music as the genre enters the twenty-first century. She argues that although the flashy clothing, informal language, and elaborate stage presentation found in some of the newest gospel music might not be what some worshipers expect, this new aesthetic rests on the same Christian principles as more traditional forms and actually extends its message to a wider and younger audience
