    This book was given to me by the goodreads First Reads Thanks Firstly, I have to say that I can t judge the content of this book because I know NOTHING about the topic I m not religious, I don t attend church and I m not very interested in music other then playing two instruments casually However, I can judge how well written it is and other parts of the book 1 The book is really well made The font and the layout is easy to read and the cover is really nice 2 It is obviously really well researched and the author definitley knows their stuff You can see from the back where the bibliogrpahy and notes are that Marti has done a lot of work and that he has gotten information for his book from a wide variety of sources Obviously, this is what you want from a non fiction book.3 When you read the introduction you can see that Gerardo Marti is extremely passionate about this subject and throughout the rest of the book you can see the dedication that has been put into the text However, I feel like there is some overuse of quotes in some parts I know how this can be, when you have so many interesting quotes and sources and you want to put everything in but you really need to cut back The quote and source ladden book is usually easy to follow and flows nicely but in some of the middle chapters the flow is interuppted by the huge amount of sources...
