Episode 467 -The Jesus Music with John J Thompson
On this episode I’m joined by John J Thompson, former Associate Dean of Trevecca Nazarene University’s School of Music in Nashville, Tennessee. He’s a speaker, producer, author, artist, and the founder of the podcast “True Tunes.” He is an expert on all things Contemporary Christian Music (CCM). As a consultant and historian he was interviewed for the new documentary “The Jesus Music Film”, which is now steaming on Hulu.
“The Jesus Music” interviews some of Christian music’s most recognizable stars, including Amy Grant, TobyMac, Kirk Franklin, Michael W. Smith, Michael Tait, Lauren Daigle and more. The film retells a nostalgic history of “Jesus music” — which would later be called contemporary Christian music.
“The Jesus Music” offers an insight to the lives and careers of some of Christian music’s most talented creators while legitimately criticizing churches for their lack of support and discussing the problem of racial segregation in Christian music.
I invited John to have a visit on the podcast today to dive deeper into the conversation that Film initiates.Web Links for John J Thompson:
