Music for the Soul Healing for the Heart is the story of one man’s journey from pop songwriter, to Christian hit-maker, to music ministry founder. Through inspiring anecdotes, as well as brain science, the book demonstrates the unique ability of a song to bring hope and healing to the deepest and most painful wounds we carry. It is a story of God’s faithfulness, the reality of miracles, and the redeeming power of Jesus Christ. Because language and melody are processed primarily in the left hemisphere and right hemispheres of the brain respectively, a song can resonate with a person more deeply than any other form of communication. In addition, melody is memory device, making it easier to remember what is heard. Author Steve Siler shares how this makes a song particularly effective in helping people tell their own stories and helping them to find comfort and a path to healing from the deep pain in their lives. Several uplifting anecdotes in the book demonstrate how people’s broken hearts are ministered to through song. The role of such music is examined both for counseling purposes and also for application within the church. The book, also part spiritual biography, gives several examples of how God gives us gifts and then directs our steps to create a life that is a deeply rewarding adventure.
