Carlsbad, CALIF |Christian News Service| — Often people will celebrate Lent by giving up chocolate, coffee, alcohol, or some other luxury. Christian music expert Al Menconi has a suggestion of his own as a way to prepare for Easter.
Author of The Christian Music Challenge: Find Peace and Purpose in a Chaotic World, Menconi recommends giving up secular music until April 17.
As added incentive during the Lenten season and to help better understand the value of listening to Christian music, Menconi is offering a free downloadable copy of The Christian Music Challenge.
The offer is good until March 22.
“I suggest that we use the next few weeks until Easter Sunday, April 20th, as a time to focus our minds and hearts on Christ,” Menconi said. “The simplest way that I know to doÂ this is by listening to Christian music. A lot of Christian music.”
Menconi recalls Isaiah 26:3, which promises perfect peace for those who keep their minds, focused on God.
“From now until Easter, why not listen to music that will help you keep your mind focused on Christ and biblical values? At the same time, evaluate your entertainment choices and eliminate entertainment that is against biblical values.”
