Hear No Evil Blog Tour by Matthew Paul Turner:


About the Book:
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.

About the Author:
Matthew Paul Turner is a blogger, speaker and author of The Coffeehouse Gospel, Provocative Faith, Beatitude: Relearning Jesus, the What You Didn’t Learn from Your Parents About… series, and several other popular books. He has written for Relevant, HomeLife, Christian Single magazines and was the former editor of CCM magazine. Matthew and his wife, Jessica, live in Nashville, Tennessee. He can be found online at

My Thoughts:
Honestly I was not sure what to except from this book. I was not entirely sure I would like it. It was a nice read though, and I loved that it had me laughing in spots. Nothing like a good book that gets you laughing. (especially when you are in a doctors office and everyone stares at you) It is a fairly quick read as well. I was able to finish it after a couple time of waiting at appointments. I have always found music to play a big role in my life. So it was nice to hear someone else feel the same. Do you ever feel like music is talking to you?

I really like Steven Curtis Chapman. His newest CD, "Beauty will Rise" is great.
