In the rush to prepare for weekly rehearsals, does it sometimes seem as if your choir isn't always focused on why they are there? Inspiration For The Choir offers 40 attention-getting devotions that are a wonderful way to precede the warm-up and start the rehearsal on an inspirational note. Each includes a brief story expounding on a musical or seasonal topic and concludes with a short prayer. This collection is a great way to increase your choir's commitment to God. After all, the choir is just a part of the overall proclamation of the gospel! You'll laugh at the humorous anecdotes ... while deepening your faith.

Pithy, practical, and also provocative. These devotionals help to focus the choir singers' thoughts at the beginning of a rehearsal. I have heard them used -- they are effective!

Dr. Wilkins brings his 50 years experience as a choral director to this charming devotional. Choir members will immediately relate to the often amusing and always faith-based anecdotes.

I strongly recommend Fred Wilkins' spiritual Inspiration For The Choir. As a long-time choral conductor and choir member, I can easily relate to the many musical and extra-musical adventures in the choir stalls and rehearsal room. Wilkins has balanced the profound with the practical in ways that are enlightening and entertaining.
