If you’ve ever had the opening bars of a song transport you back in time or remind you of a pivotal spiritual moment, Matthew Paul Turner’s honest—and frequently hilarious—musings will strike a chord. Straightforward and amusing, Hear No Evil is Turner’s “life soundtrack,” a compilation of engaging personal stories about how music—and music’s ability to transform—has played a key role in his spiritual life.
Groove along on his journey as young evangelical Turner attends forbidden contemporary Christian concerts, moves to “Music City” Nashville, and dreams of becoming the Michael Jackson of Christian music.
Cosmic and compelling, keen and funny, every page is a new encounter with the people, places, and experiences that have taught the music-editor-turned-author some new things about God, forced him out of his comfort zone, and introduced him to a fresh view of grace along the way.

If you are a fan of music (Hello you are browsing newreleasetuesday.com so you are!!) you need to pick up this book by Matthew Paul Turner. I rarely re-read books and I have read this one several times. An insider look at the industry that feeds us our tunes, this coming of age story has a little something for all of us to relate to. Whether you were raised in an ultra-conservative family covering your ears from syncopated rhythms, or were raised on some good ol' rock n' roll, you will get a good laugh, as well as some weighty thought to chew on with this little gem. Highly recommended.
